Avera’s first Christmas is here already and it couldn’t have been more of a whirlwind! In the midst of her turning 9 months, us packing out and Mike’s busy work schedule, Christmas wasn’t as traditional as usual. Of course we made the most of it and had a blast as a family anyway!
We spent the weekend of Christmas caroling with the Fiends, having brunch with friends, watching Christmas movies and baking cookies.
Fiend Christmas caroling is one of our favorite squadron events!
Saturday brunch and movies with friends.
The tradition of Christmas cookies was a must!
And nontraditional Korean chicken boxes for Christmas Eve dinner.
Christmas Day we FaceTimed with family, opened a few [never] wrapped presents and enjoyed the uneventful day together.
We couldn’t get one picture of all 4 family members looking so we took some solo shots.
We did get this one with the trusty selfie-stick.
Matching jammies for the win!!
Avera’s favorite toy was the box of course.
Avie thought Pippa needed her help.
And both of the girls thought Daddy needed help with his present 🙂
Which was a saddle for daddy-back-rides for Avie!
Many cookies were eaten, memories made and Avera’s first Christmas is going down in the books as a win!
