We made a quick detour to the Puget Sound Aquarium before making our way up to grandma and grandpa's house. Jaxon is fascinated by sharks, sting rays, scorpions and the like, and we weren’t disappointed in the least at all the fun creatures we saw….like this friendly snail for instance!
Once we made it to Snohomish our first order of business was to meet and fall in love with our new baby niece/cousin Ava. She’s so sweet. Then we had a ginger bread house making contest….it’s too bad we were up against the self proclaimed reigning world champ of Ginger bread house decorating(Jarom)…or we might of had a chance!
On Christmas Eve we made sure to make sugar cookies for Santa, got some new pajamas, and of course a quick Nativity. Jaxon was adamant that he be a Shepherd man. He’s a sweet kid, and loved the fact that it was really baby Jesus’ birthday that we were celebrating.
sweet little Christmas Ava Unfortunately, Sage fell asleep early on Christmas Eve so she missed out of the festivities. But she got her pajamas in the morning, and seemed as happy as could be about it. So it all worked out in the end.
Jake and I sat up after everyone had gone to bed next to the tree and just reveled in the magic of Christmas. It was wonderful. I then got to chat with Heather for almost an hour and hear all about her wonderful Christmas. It couldn’t have been a better Christmas Eve.
I actually had to be woken up on Christmas morning, which almost never happens, and the morning was full of your classic Christmas fun. Santa came and brought way too many toys! :)
This is what I got on Christmas from Jake, with a little help from Santa! I LOVE it, and even get to take private lessons I’ll be a pro in no time! I got the sweater too. My in-laws know me well enough to get me gift cards. Those are the best presents! So I went out the next day and spoiled myself!
It was a wonderful Christmas, and we made lots of fun memories!
Yesterday was an awesome snow storm! We obviously were caught off guard as you can see by Sagie’s choice of outfit for the day. Don’t worry we had a coat on her, just had to take it off real quick for the picture! :)
What a wonderful Christmas vacation! And to top it off, today we found out we’re having another perfect baby girl! I can’t wait.
Little perfect feet.
Isn’t she sweet? :)
