It was a lovely Christmas season here for us in Colorado. I honestly can’t believe it’s over already! We had the best time trying to squeeze all the holiday cheer in a few short weeks.
We met Santa with no tears, and Cannon actually told him a gift that he wanted (Paw Patrol toy).
We eventually made it up to Georgetown to ride the Georgetown Loop Railroad. You may recall that we missed our chance to ride it on Black Friday like we normally d we were able to reschedule. We love going to the mountains anytime, but it was extra magical this time of year.
My parents joined us and made it extra fun!
We built the kids a playground in our basement that has been a BIG hit.
Elf on the shelf took over the house and the kids loved playing with filters.
Cannon had his first ever school concert and did so well! Emmy loved visiting his school and loves his teacher so much!
Cannon also had a PJ day for his last day of school before winter break, and helped me put together gifts for his teachers.
On break there was lots of fun with friends, a cookie exchange and cuddling with The Grinch on repeat.
We attended Grandma and Grandpa’s Christmas party and had fun playing games, seeing Santa and taking a carriage ride.
There was lots of baking and enjoying yummy food.
On Christmas Eve we took a morning hike then hosted family dinner and let the kids open their big gift from us.
After the kids were asleep waiting for Santa, Cory and I stayed up late being sure that everything was wrapped and breakfast was ready for the morning. I use this recipe for sticky buns that is so easy and good.
Christmas morning was so fun opening gifts just the four of us.
We then went to my parents house for gifts and a delicious dinner.
We had such a wonderful Christmas this year. Cannon is pretty sad that it’s over and for him next year feels forever away.
I hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday and you are looking forward to the new year.
