Sweet Christmas for Three.

This week, I want to recap all of my Christmas festivities and fun! (So basically, from now until the new year, you will see lots and lots of pictures!) Today, I want to show you a glimpse into the night before we left our home to be with our family.

Since our folks live an hour away and we have two of the smallest vehicles known to man, we decided to have a little family Christmas, just the three of us (so we didn't have to haul ALL of the presents to and fro). We got into our jammies, put on the Christmas tunes and opened our presents to each other. It was so sweet, and so fun.


(This was earlier in the day when we went to visit Santa.)


Levi had to check out the tag to make sure it was really his present and not someone elses.


Wrapping paper is SO MUCH FUN!


"What. Is. That.???"


He wasn't too sure what to think about his pal Scout.


He grew to LOVE him!


Husby tried to guess what I got him.....he was wrong. :)


Levi really appreciated my fine wrapping skills. Thanks, baby cakes.


Next, I opened my present from Weebie.


A "Comfy"!! (Which is Brookstone's version of the Snuggie, but it is much thicker, heavier and softer. LOVE IT!)


Next, I was in for a surprise of a lifetime.

Husby gave me this gift first.


And then brought out this bad boy!!


A really nice, really CUTE road bike! I am so excited to learn this sport. Husby has been riding since this summer and is just addicted. Now he wants us to ride as a family.

It was a very sweet evening with my boys. The perfect way to start our Christmas week!
I am a modern day homemaker with a passion for family, cooking, celebrating, decorating, travel, and memory making! The Lord has blessed me with the desires of my heart in my husband and our two sons. We recently built our dream home and cultivating a loving and happy haven for my family is where I find so much joy.

  8. I got the same wrapping paper and LOVE it! I got black and white polka dots to go with the red and white damask print so I can use it during the year too. I don't think I have ever enjoyed wrapping paper as much as I have this year! I can't wait to see more pictures!

  11. My daughter got Violet(girl version of Scout) for Christmas too. She LOVES it! It is the cutest toy. I have already fell in love with the fact that it plays 10 minutes of bedtime music....GREAT for car rides!

  12. My husband always has to guess the present before he opens it too.

  14. How fun! Did you mention what you got your hubby? I LOVE wrapping paper from Hobby Lobby, and all their ribbon. it is just so fun. I loaded up again this year. LOVE IT.


  15. I love the Christmas jammies! My family used to go on bike rides all the time. Derek would ride in a special seat on the back of my dad's bike. We have so many memories from those rides.

  16. That is a great gift! Now you can make lots of new memories together!!

    Levi's face was priceless when he was not to sure about that one toy!! Very Cute.

  17. Levi is such a cutie! What is the difference between a road bike and a regular bike?

  18. Oh how precious!! Looks like a greta Christmas!!

  19. I just adore your cute family and the pictures of your lovely home. It looks like you had a great Christmas. Levi has the cutest PJs.

  21. Hey, I recently started reading your blog. My husband is a resident. We started biking this summer. It's so fun!

  22. Wowzers! Great gifts!

    Ok, so please, please, please blog about how you guys will ride as a family. Are you going to get Levi a little buggy? I only ask, because my husband is HUGELY into riding/triathlons, etc... and he has been wanting me to take up riding too. Anyhow, I just don't feel comfortable going alone, and when can we find the time to go together as a couple, w/ a baby?!?
