The entire month of December felt like Christmas so I have a TON of photos coming!! It was the most exhausting month of my life and it honestly took me 3 days after Christmas to recover. Ha! It seems like every year goes faster than the year before. I started prepping for Christmas back in September and I barely got everything done in time.
Beckett is at such a fun age. Everything to him seemed so magical but he never once felt threatened by the fact that Santa and the Elf were watching him. Hahaha!
We were late getting our tree this year. We tried a new tree farm a few towns over and although the tree was perfect we won’t go back again next year. We all kind of missed our usual tree farm.
Megan wasn’t around to get the tree with us this year.
Look at how beautiful it is!! It was perfect until it fell over 3 days later breaking 15 of my favorite ornaments. Ugh!
The month of December also brought a collaboration with a company called Mapiful. We LOVE our new London map. Thank you Mapiful!
Jon and I snuck in a Patriots date in the middle of all the Christmas preparations.
We had a nice visit and cookies with Santa at a new Inn a few towns over.
I had this cute little shopping buddy with me. We went out every single day in December. There he is shopping in his pajamas two mornings before Christmas.
Lots of puppy love
Beckett looked forward to his advent chocolate every morning. Here he is trying to sneak it first thing. Ha!
The only thing I ever bake at Christmas is cookies for Santa. Here is my cute little cookie helper.
Gingerbread house makers
After school ice cream snack
We tracked Santa all day!
The kids do a Christmas Eve present exchange every year. It’s so fun watching what they pick out for one another. It’s one of my favorite parts of Christmas. We ordered Chinese food, opened new Christmas pjs and then watched a few movies before bed
My dining room looked so peaceful before I went to bed on Christmas Eve so I had to take a picture
There was excitement, noise, magic and a huge mess!!
It was GREAT!!
We had a house full on Christmas Day
It really is the best time of the year!!
We finished the month with a birthday party for my dad
And a holiday party at Marlene’s (that I don’t have any pictures of)
2018 was a great year for our family filled with so many fun memories. We’re all excited to see what 2019 brings. Thanks so much for following along on our family’s journey. Happy New Year!!
