christmas recap

I know, I know. Christmas is so over. But I’m doing one more Christmas post because I know you are dying to see photos from our first Christmas as a family of three, right?


I knew it.

We skipped a fancy Christmas Eve dinner and did appetizers before church instead. My mama used to do this when I was growing up and I always loved it. I was too busy stuffing my face to take pictures of everything but I did get some of the punch, onion-bacon marmalade , and the classic thumbprint cookies.

After we ate, we got all dressed up in our Christmas-best and went to church.

I didn’t get Not even on my phone. Bad mommy.

After a few days of rain, it was so awesome to wake up to bright, beautiful sunshine on Christmas day. We spent the morning at the beach.



While everyone else went surfing, Lyla and I ate fistfulls of played in the sand.


During Lyla’s morning nap, Alex and I went next door. Of course, I had to grab a picture of Alex modeling his new hat, watches and jammies from Santa 😉

Could those two be any cuter?! I mean, really. It hurts.

The rest of the day we just relaxed, ate delicious food and hung out with friends (aka TSB). We missed our family and friends on the mainland but are thankful that we got to spend Lyla’s first Christmas together as a family.

Only 352 days until next Christmas!
