Christmas Break Scenes

Today I'm finally finishing up catch-up of the holiday season.  The photo below pretty much sums up our Christmas break - we ditched our plans and were very lazy - it was fantastic.

Start of Christmas Break:  For the first day of Christmas break we met up with my family for lunch and then went over to my parents house for the afternoon so Tatum could help Lovie bake some Christmas cookies.

Counting Down: We counted down the final days until Christmas morning.

Cookie Baking:  Similar to wrapping, I usually bake cookies throughout the season but with a time crunch and a newborn we just got to work and made them all the first night of Christmas break and had a little appetizer party for ourselves.

Playing:  Tatum is slowly starting to "play" a little bit more - so we've had fun testing out his Christmas gifts - his favorites are the play center, kicking in his tee pee and playing piano with kicks.

Family Christmas Dinner:  In addition to celebrating on Christmas, the whole family usually gets together for a nice Christmas meal together.  The temperatures were cold (and still are) sand we all three had colds so we didn't take Tatum out much but we also made it out for a family lunch the three of us.

New Years Eve:  We finished off the year with a lunch just the three of us then had a nice dinner with family before celebrating with friends.  The next day we were as lazy as that photo of Tatum - pizza and football too.


  1. I love your NYE outfit! Super cute! Sounds like a great break was had by all.

  2. Wow!! Looks like such a incredible break! I am always so impressed by how well you guys do holidays! Everything is always so festive. I bet it was extra special this year with your new little man! He is too cute!

  3. I'm so ashamed to say I didn't cook a single cookie over Christmas. Yours look sooo yummy!

  4. There's nothing wrong with being lazy and relaxing during the holidays. The Christmas cookies look yummy and that teepee is super cute.
