Holiday Highlights

We had so much fun this month getting ready for Christmas. The boys seem to be getting the whole “Santa” thing more and more every year, which makes it that much more fun. Here are some of our favorite holiday highlights:

We put our Christmas tree up early and the boys favorite ornament to fight over – the donut. I’m pretty sure they took turns biting off all the fake sprinkles and cried once the other demanded a turn.

Dad and Zayn made a Christmas wish list letter to send to Santa – chocolate AND peanut butter cereal. The boy’s such a foodie.  |  Aunt Emmy came over and did all my holiday baking (she’s the best!). Zayn helped her taste test.

Mohammad sports his “Hotline Bling” sweater for Emily’s ugly sweater party.  |  The boys visited Santa – there was lots of talk about sugary cereals.

Our cookie decorating party was a great sticky success. The boys didn’t let a single M&M go to waste.

We went and saw Christmas lights multiple nights, went on a holiday carousel ride, saw trains steam through Christmas villages, and on Christmas Eve we opened matching pajamas and called it a night.

Dad and Kai woke first on Christmas morning and dragged Zayn and I out of bed at 6am. Zayn was elated when he saw the Christmas cereal Santa had left for him and both boys dug right in. We really could have stopped Christmas right then and there. Ha!

And after all the festivities were done, we packed up and headed up to the snow. Snow! The boys were full of giggles with every push down the hill, and asked over and over to do it again and again. And that’s just what we did. A very merry Christmas indeed.
