Christmas Eve 2017

I know, I know it is almost mid-Janurary, but I am still writing about Christmas. Someday I will catch up to real time, someday. 🙂

Christmas Eve always begins with breakfast at Steve’s dad and stepmom’s house. It is a great way to begin the day; relaxing and fun. Our girls love getting two “Christmas mornings”.

Christmas Eve comes to an end with mass, pizza, and a cake for Jesus.

We love spending our Christmas Eve at home with our girls. It makes for a stress free evening. We love to be able enjoy the Christmas season.

Christmas 2017 – Part 1

Oh where do I begin…

Seeing the magic of Christmas through my daughters eyes is simply a blessing. They see things with such pure hearts and it is beautiful. I love that their happiness is so simple, I strive to be like them day in and day out. It’s the little stuff that means the most. I have become the best me since becoming a mom. I love the me that I have become; I am far from perfect, but my girls challenge me each and every moment to be the best version of me. Not only for them, but for me.

Christmas through their eyes is perfect…

We spent the week leading up to Christmas reading lots and lots of Christmas books, attending school parties, pajama day and so much more.

I love getting my shopping and wrapping done early so I can truly enjoy this time of year with my girls. I have my hubby to thank for that. I am a procrastinator and he is definitely the opposite and that is one of the reasons I love him.

More Christmas fun to come….

Santa Brunch 2017

I know, I know I did it again. It’s been weeks since posting. I am just not sure why I can’t get it together on posting. Well, actually I have 4 really good reasons – Sophia, Isabella, McKayla, and McKenzie. 🙂 Being a mom ALWAYS comes first. But, I must say one of my goals for 2018 is to get back to a more regular blogging schedule I really do miss it.

Okay. let’s talk Santa brunch. This year was our best year yet; no tears, no fear whatsoever. Our girls are getting so big.

These are the memories that will last a lifetime. I know I say this all the time, but experiencing Christmas through their eyes makes it so much more magical. Life is truly amazing. I couldn’t ask for anything more.

Thanksgiving 2017 – Better Late than Never

Year after year we spend thanksgiving in Niagara Falls, New York and we wouldn’t have it any other way. We all look forward to it. It’s one of the few times we get to be with our family from New York and it really is special. I love seeing my girls play with all their cousins; family is everything.

Our girls love sleeping in hotels especially because they get to sleep with their sisters.

We were lucky enough to get to spend Thanksgiving with Oscar, McKayla and McKenzie’s class “pet” turtle. We made sure to take him to the falls, even though it was quite chilly; he was worth it.

We always end our trip with a visit to Uncle Mike’s Dairy Queen and it’s one of our favorite days.

These moments may only last a little bit, but the memories with last forever.
