Christmasing

Celebrating the month of December with a 2 year old was so. much. fun! Owen was curious about all things Christmas, and both Kevin and I really enjoyed sharing stories, traditions, songs, and preparations with him.

We were able to travel to my parents’ house and celebrate a little early with them and my Grandma.

Owen received his most absolutely favorite present–a guitar.  His newfound love of music is so precious; I am so proud of his attention, dedication, and aptitude for instruments.  Kevin generously gave him these gifts, I really love watching them jam together.  Lucky for Owen, he has other talented people to play with, too.

Returning home, we were treated to a beautiful snowfall on Christmas Eve.  I love the peaceful stillness of our woods in the snow.  Of course, it’s even better with a happy (and loud) toddler!

Christmas morning started with celebrating Kevin’s birthday in the kitchen, then we headed to the tree!

Happy Birt-day, Daddy!

After opening and playing with gifts, we cleaned up and headed to Kevin’s parents’ house.  Owen saw 7 of his 9 cousins and we all enjoyed the extra family time.

Special memories were made, and we’re already looking forward to next year!
