Our Christmas 2020

Another wonderful Christmas is in the books! We spent a few days celebrating the birth of Jesus, spending time with our families, and relaxing. We even managed to film a vlog!

The festivities started on the 23rd when I get a surprise visit from Mavis and her sweet owner! I may or may not have shed a few tears of happiness at the opportunity to give her a hug and pet her soft fur again.

That evening, we had our monthly family night. We built a gingerbread village together and baked cookies for our neighbors.

On the 24th, I started the day off bright and early with a warm mug of coffee and my Bible ❤

My parents came over in the afternoon to hang out and exchange gifts with us. They gave Sadie a power wheel!

To say she was surprised and overjoyed would be an understatement. It was raining outside, but she didn’t mind one bit. Girl did not want to get off her new “beep beep,” as she calls it. I may or may not have driven it, too 😉

We all relaxed and played the day away! Sadie was soaking up all the attention from my parents and I was able to quickly cut Jimmy’s hair while she was occupied, lol.

In the evening, we went to the Christmas Eve service at church. I didn’t see much of it (#toddlerlife) but what I did experience of it was beautiful and very special ❤

Afterwards, Jimmy’s siblings and my in-laws came over to have snacks and exchange gifts. We had such a fun time watching Sadie play with her new toys, sharing food, and staying warm inside while it began to snow!

Christmas morning found me up early again with my Bible and coffee. We woke up to a couple of inches of snow with more falling throughout the day. Our little family exchanged gifts and hung out for the day.

It was so relaxing to just spend time with each other.

Jimmy and Sadie spent some time outside and I prepped a fruit salad to bring to my sister-in-law’s house for dinner. We braved the snowy roads and enjoyed breakfast for dinner with Jimmy’s family.

We spent more time enjoying each others company and playing with Sader Tot.

We headed home and snuggled before hitting the hay. What a blessed Christmas! We are so thankful to God for the ultimate gift of His Son ❤
