Our First Real Christmas


It’s officially Christmas week and I could’t be more excited!

I thought last year when Brooks was {almost} 1 year old was a blast and he wasn’t even walking yet. Now we have a very mobile + energetic toddler and a 3 month old on our hands! It’s been a crazy holiday season, but seriously so much fun. I think that each year from here on out will be more and more festive as the littles get older!


Everything is different this year because we have a little one on our hands who actually {sort of} understands whats going on. It’s been so much fun and so magical to see Christmas all over again, through the eyes of my child. It’s been so special to take him to all the Christmas events all over town, see Santa a time {or two, or three!} and get excited for everything with Brooks when he sees it for the first time. We’ve been talking up Santa + Christmas and the whole holiday season all month – it’s been fun to introduce everything to my very curious toddler.


While Graham obviously won’t be into Christmas this yea, I can’t wait to see Brooks’ eyes light up on Christmas morning when he comes down the stairs and sees that Santa has come! He’s going to be completely overwhelmed, and I’m sure he would be just has happy playing with the wrapping paper all day than any new toys {which we totally spoiled him with this year!} but it’s going to be a magical, first “real” Christmas together.

Is it Friday yet?!

    Like you, I am super excited for Brooks to come over and see what Santa has left him at Gaga and Pops house! Doing all the fun Christmas things with you and the littles has brought back many memories when you were this age and growing up. It only gets more fun for everyone while still a believer!
