We stayed up really late Christmas Eve
(but who doesn't?) so I set an alarm to wake
us up at 8am.
I woke up, put some apple bread in the
oven and then set out to conquer the
task of waking up Luis and Olivia.
This was Olivia's biggest Christmas yet,
from us, anyway. Maybe it's the fact that
it's her last Christmas as our only
child, but we went a little overboard
compared to previous years.
It was completely worth it though, because she
After we opened our gifts at home,
we got ready and headed to my mom's.
It only took about 5 minutes of us
being there before Olivia convinced them
to let her open her gifts there.
From there, we went to my grandma's
and exchanged Secret Santa gifts with the
extended family. And then off to Luis's
family's for more food and movies.
It was such a laid back and relaxing

We've been busy with lots of
and Christmas festivities.
I'm so excited that it's finally
Christmas Eve and that Olivia
actually gets it this year.
We're keeping our tradition of

We won't be going to my Mom's
until tomorrow morning
due to her weird
work schedule this year,

our last Christmas Eve
as a family of 3 this year. :)
Wishing you all Merry Christmas!

Last night we visited our local zoo
(and by local I mean an hour and a half
away) for their Zoo Lights event.
Cherish and Camden joined us for the lights,
Christmas music, hot chocolate, and animals.
We had so much fun and can't wait to
make it a tradition next year.
And PS- It's FINALLY starting
to feel a bit like Christmas around
here. At least for a few
So maybe I'm behind, so what.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with
Luis's side of the family this year.
I forgot to take pictures throughout
the evening, but we got these of our family
before everything started.
One is our Christmas card picture this year. :)
Olivia was thrilled, obviously. ;)
