Did Santa make his way to your house as well? We were able to sneak right up to him!
The holiday season is my favorite time of the year and it always goes by too fast. The lights, the smells, all seem to go by in a hurry.
We had my family in town for belated birthday, early Christmas celebrations and Andrew’s dad popped over to spend Christmas with us. I relate more each year to the Griswolds, but you go with it and embrace all the chaos. (yes, please get a load of Norak’s “It’s A Wonderful Life” hoodie) –
Rhys was in awe of everything, and Ryder looked for Elfie every morning somewhere “up high.” He’s more of a hide-and-seek toy for now…next year he’ll be reporting to Santa. The boys made some uber cute holiday ornaments and presents this year. Our tree is starting to fill up with memories. We spent most of the holiday watching “Prep and Landing,” “Rudolph,” and of course “Go.” Ryder can’t quite articulate “Frozen,” but “Go” works for us.
We’ve started our family traditions, which includes a special Christmas Eve dinner and late night showing of “Die Hard.” I still track Santa! My favorite iPhone app. On Christmas Day we take our time opening presents, and by time I mean all day. It helps Christmas last just that much longer. New this year, moose mugs! Egg nog tastes much better when you cheers to Cousin Eddie.
Santa was kind to us, and hopefully the boys will let us live in the small house they are building. Personally, I’m enjoying Ryder’s basketball goal and tunnel tent.
We didn’t get a white Christmas, in fact all our snow melted away. It came back late Christmas day and we got 5 inches the day after. Close, Frosty, real close.
Wrapped up the holiday with some skiing, and next year we’ll be taking Rye with us.
I’m glad we got to enjoy family and let the holiday linger. Don’t worry I’m still listening to Christmas Music…
Hope everyone had a relaxing, restful holiday and remembered the reason for the season. Prost!
