Christmas this year was absolutely magical with Knox. From the moment he walked out of his room and saw the presents under the tree he was squealing with excitement. It was like his little hands could not tear the paper off of the toys fast enough! His face was engulfed with ooo’s and awww’s the entire morning and we could not get him so sit still. Resulting in blurry pictures and priceless memories.
After opening presents, we went to the park and then spent the rest of the evening playing on the beach and watching the sunset. It was a perfect little Christmas.
Lucky for us… we had a Christmas that lasted 2 whole weeks! Now here is Christmas #2. We drove to St. George to spend Christmas with my family. I really do have such an amazing family and getting to spend 5 days with them for the Holidays was pure joy.
The year long anticipated “What pajamas with Nana get us this year” finally came! And the kids were extatic about the Darth Vador pj’s! Getting them all to stand in a line for a picture was a mix of squirming, laughing, screaming, dancing, and posing haha oh to be a kid again!
Okay.. now for Christmas #3… We traded our warm weather for some snow. Because what would Christmas be without at least a little snow! We drove to Draper to have a Christmas with our Lee family. We love spending time with them so so much! And Knox missed them like crazy!
I am so grateful for all the people that surrounded us with love this looong Christmas. For the thoughtful gifts and the time people made to be with us. We have amazing people in our lives and don’t take any of them for granted. I’m so grateful for this time of year when not only do we think of others, but of our Savior Jesus Christ.
Here is to a new year! And no matter our circumstances.. making it better than the last 🙂
