christmas 2016

Christmas morning was so much fun this year! Landon loved the wrapping paper - no surprise there - and Trace understood that Santa was coming and squealed with excitement when he looked through the banister to see all of his presents that "Ho Ho" brought him...

Bryan and I absolutely loved watching the kids rip through everything and really got to take in the expressions on their faces, the excitement in their voices and all of the playing with new toys. It was special to us to have our 1st Christmas as a family of 4 to be just us on Christmas morning and we wouldn't have had it any other way. We've actually had long talks about it being like this for years to come, just us soaking in these precious fleeting moments with our boys...

After we opened presents my parents came over for a large breakfast feast outside on our back patio. Yes! It was that warm out... I was in heaven.....

The afternoon and evening were very low key, just how I have always envisioned Christmas' at my house to be. It was all about the kids and we love it!

With the help of my mom, Trace and Landon surprised me with a pretty drawing...

Who knew baking cookies could be so fun? Well they are when you have a super silly Nanny who encourages you to get creative and dirty, all in the name of good fun!

 The best sugar high taster tester around!

Bryan allowed Trace to grab a freshly iced cookie and smash it on his face. The things we do to make our kids laugh :)

We had such a relaxing and fun day! Christmas 2015 that's a wrap!!
