Christmas 2015

We will forever remember this Christmas as one of our best yet.  The combination of Waverly being able to really "get it" (which was so, so fun!), & it being sweet Avalon's first just made everything extra special.  We also were able to spend lots of family time which I cherish more than ever these days, since my brother moved to Colorado a few months back.  And also, on a side note, it was our hottest Christmas yet, a record 80 degrees!  We complained about it being too hot to feel like Christmas all day, but it was actually nice that it was warm enough for the babes to be able to play with their new toys outside.

Christmas Eve, we spent most of the day wrapping last-minute gifts & grocery shopping, then went to my grandparents house for dinner.  The girls were a little crazier than normal - Avalon got her first tooth for Christmas & was fighting a cold, and Waverly was overtired from too much excitement to nap, and you know, she's three - but we made the most of it!  I have been going to my grandparents for Christmas Eve since I was little and I love that I can bring my own daughters now.

My Dress - On Sale!
First thing Christmas morning, I heard Waverly moving around in her room and then her little, high-pitched voice say "did Santa come?".  Best ever.  We brought them both down and I'm convinced there is nothing quite as magical as Christmas morning with your kids, they were so cute & excited, I wish we could relive it over, over and over again.


We hosted both sides of our family for dinner, which is always so much fun.  Waverly loved having all of our family there & showing off all of her new toys.  Her favorite gift so far has been a set of princess dolls my mom got for her, they haven't left her sight since! :)  We played games and relaxed, and when it was time to go to bed, couldn't believe Christmas was over.  It always goes too fast, doesn't it?!

Hope you all had the most amazing, special, fun-filled holiday with your loved ones.

  4. Sounds like the perfect way to celebrate. The weather definitely didn't cooperate this year for Christmas. It was hard to get in the mood. Although, now after a snow storm all day yesterday & last night, we have at least 6 inches. Just a few days late. Ha!

  6. Your Christmas sounds like our Christmas last year - 80 degrees! This year we switched weather and we had a cold Christmas. No rain or snow, but cold, which was a change for Southern California!
    Sounds like an amazing, amazing Christmas! Mason finally got it too which made it so, so much fun!! Love sweet Waverly's face when she sees her presents!

  12. I love everything about this! You have such a sweet family. And you’re right – Christmas with your kids is PURE magic! I just wish it would last a little longer. Always feels like it’s gone in the blink of an eye. I love your outfits, as always.
