Christmas 2014

I’m going to try and keep this as brief as possible and mostly share our holiday through pictures. I believe pictures tell the greatest story so here are a few from our Christmas last year…

Our Elf on the Shelf Terrance arrived for the season with presents and a donut breakfast. He was also sporting a new jersey. He knew we were nuts about football in this house.

Here are the girls on our annual trip to pick out our Christmas tree. We are super fancy and get our tree from Home Depot every year. What can I say? It’s become our tradition 🙂

Terrance brought Sophie a plush Elf and she just loved her.

Lyla walked in our town’s holiday parade with her Girl Scout troupe. The parade ended with the tree lighting ceremony. This was Lyla’s first time walking in a parade (I walked along with her). It was a fun night and a great experience.




Lyla performed a routine with her gymnastics class in their annual holiday show. Our girl did so great!

Lyla and I went to see the Nutcracker with my mom. This is one of my favorite holiday traditions.


On Christmas Eve, we went to a local farm where they had snow tubing. We had so much fun!

On Christmas Eve night, we baked cookies for Santa.

And Sophie woke up with a major case of bed head.


We had a very low-key night at home, it was perfect.



Here the girls are opening their one gift on Christmas Eve.


Someone was loving Christmas.


Santa came!


Lyla had been begging for a pajanimal. She reminds me of Ralphie from A Christmas Story.



We went to my in-laws house for a quick drink and appetizers. Here are the ladies of the family.


We ended the night at my parents house. That was our Christmas in a nutshell!! It was a lovely time.
