Christmas 2016

The days following Christmas are always cozy. I'm currently cuddled up on the couch in my red flannel pajamas enjoying a steaming cup of coffee. New toys are scattered around the living room floor and my Christmas tree lights are still on. My kids are testing out all their new toys and leftover turkey has been made into soup and sandwiches. Everything is calm, quiet and good.

Christmas moments...

We were leaving for Christmas eve mass when I realized Rosie's fancy shoes were too small for her. Luckily, her baby ballet slippers went perfectly with her pale pink dress made of tulle.

My favourite gift this year was a dress Rosie's great-grandmother made for her. The pattern is from a book published in the 1950s and it took her a year to knit. It's beautiful and looks old fashioned. I would show you a picture, but I'm making you wait until Rosie's 2nd birthday post!

I love setting the Christmas table with my mom. She does all the hard work like ironing the linen tablecloth and polishing the silverware, but I help with putting it all together. Henry and Rosie made all the place cards this year.

The Christmas tradition that I love best is our early morning walk. It was still dark when we bundled our kids in their snowsuits and headed outside. When it was time to turn around, Henry didn't want to go home! Despite knowing that Santa had come, our nature boy wanted to stay outside.

Christmas jammies. I love when these two match.

Speaking of matching, my family has a serious problem.

We're still in vacation mode until next week and I'm so happy and thankful for family.

Happy New Year, friends!
