THE CHRISTMAS POST

Christmas came and was full of magic, twinkly lights and lots of family time. Christmas Eve was full of traditions - driving around town to see lights, leaving cookies for Santa (and carrots for the reindeer!), opening new pajamas, a spaghetti dinner (a tradition we started the year Lia was born) and a long night of wrapping presents!

Lia isn't much of an open all the presents at one time kind of gal. She opens one and then has to play with it. Or find all her old toys to bring down and join in the fun. So, opening presents took us a few hours and I have to say I'm glad we didn't buy more than what we did (which was probably too much already!). She got her Barbie Dreamhouse and has been playing with it every day since. The cutest part is when she cleans the inside up when she's done so Santa can see how good she is taking care of her new toy! Her other favorite is her new doll that's been on every errand with us since.

It was a simple, mostly quiet morning with hot chocolate and snowman pancakes. It was cool enough to test out our new fireplace for a little while and we spent most of the day on the sofa or playing with L. I even squeezed in some party piƱata making!

It's pretty crazy to know this was our last Christmas as a family of 3 and the year has almost rounded out. Here's to a festive, happy holiday down and looking forward to a new year!
