Can it be that each Christmas is better than that last? Perhaps because this one was so relaxed and so focused on exactly what it should be- family, simple traditions and the real reason for the holiday.
I made lots of alterations to my routine this year...I downsized, simplified and focused on my family and the things that we love the most. I made cookies, whipped up a batch of seasoning to use as a homemade gift for my teammates, neighbors and friends and planned easy meals so that I wasn't slaving away and could enjoy the togetherness of the day. Cooper and I decorated a gingerbread house and sugar cookies for Christmas Eve and a visit from some friends. I felt so prepared and so calm- able to enjoy the season and my family. Hooray!
Here are a few of the moments that we shared, and loved.
Merry Christmas to All!
