Christmas all wrapped up


I LOVE Christmas, but there is something so relaxing about the days following Christmas. We did a lot of lounging around the house, it was very enjoyable to kick my feet up with nothing to do!

This was hands down my favorite Christmas ever. We had some quality time with family in Rhode Island on Christmas Eve and then with my family in Connecticut on Christmas Day.

Tuesday night we headed to Rhode island to begin our holiday festivities.

Here is a quick recap of the 2 BIG days.


Marc and I managed to get a picture in before all the craziness began.


Who wore the Santa Hat better?


Ava loved all her snuggles from her Grandma.


One of Ava’s favorite gifts on Christmas Eve was her stroller. She puts her baby in it and pushes it around…. it was very cute to watch!!

One of the best parts about the day was seeing Ava’s curiosity while unwrapping gifts. We had to start unwrapping her gifts for her and then she would finish it. I think by the end of the day she got the hang of it.


Well actually by the end of Christmas eve day this girl looked like a ZOMBIE!!!  (hahah, no joke)  She still enjoyed her snuggle time with Cousin Natalie.

Ava truly made Christmas more magical for me and has brought so much more excitement for my family too!


They definitely made my day easier by playing with her and her new toys!


I can’t forget about my other child…..


Cooper was quite a character and loved playing with all the toys that Ava would leave behind.


We managed to get another picture together. (no I am not pregnant, Marc just placed his hand in an awkward spot)

OKAY.. to wrap up this long post.. here is a video of Ava with one of her Favorite presents.

Ava impressed us all with her Basketball moves. She is a quick learner and really listens to everything you say.

Clearly she takes direction well. She can already slam dunk a basketball!! :)

Did you get everything you wanted for Christmas?

Will you be doing anything fun for New Years Eve??

  1. I may of squealed with excitement when watching Ava make the basket. What a natural :)

    • aw thanks! I think we all screamed and jumped for joy.

      It is so funny how such a small accomplishment of putting the bball in the hoop left us all super excited for what Ava will do next :)
