We celebrated my youngest’s 2nd birthday this weekend. Here are a few highlights.
Wanted to share some of my favs from my little ladies photo-shoot as a reminder of how beautiful winter truly is. As we hurry from the warmth to our cars, workplaces or stores it is easy to overlook the beauty of this time of year and only see the negatives. Today as you hustle from your car to your home stop for a second to admire the icicles on the trees and breath it all in. Life is full of beautiful in the most unexpected of places.
We are so blessed this year! We get to spend Christmas Eve with our families and children, eating good food and enjoying great company.
Tonight we will pack a care package for our little Elf on the Shelf, Elsa, and send her back to Santa. Our kids will open their special Christmas Eve gift which is always new pj’s, popcorn, hot coco, ice-cream treat and a new Christmas themed movie.
Our little family will snuggle in and watch the movie before bed. After we will place a key for Santa on the door.
We will get out our special cookie plate and cup and set out fresh made cookies and a tall glass of ice-cold milk for Santa and some carrots for his reindeers. Then it is off to bed to dream of sleigh-bells and magic, I ❤ this time of year!
One of my favorite gifts to bring newbie parents in the hospital is Champagne. When our first child was born we brought a bottle with us and had the nurses put it in the fridge. After her birth we celebrated with intimate family and friends. It truly was a special way to welcome our new addition and one of my favorite memories of her birthday.
This is one of the cutest bubblies I have found to bring the parents (especially if they have a girl). It is Barefoot brand and the little foot is just too precious. They also make mini bottles which are great if you don’t want to bring glasses to the hospital so everyone can have their own “baby” bottle.
Here is the gift tag I tie on the bottle. Enjoy 🙂
