My Christmas

This year I did more "Christmasy" activities than usual.  Because I did so many things leading up to Christmas, it actually felt more like Christmas than usual.  The cold weather in SoCal helped too.  It was nice to light a fire when it was cloudy and cool instead of the usual 75 and sunny!

Michael took me to see Nutcracker (sorry it is blurry)

He painted her nails to match mine.  Could they be any cuter?!

My friend, Sarah, hosted an amazing cookie exchange and tea party.

Michael is a police officer and we got the fun job of escorting Santa around town!

His niece and Olivia were SOO excited to see Santa and Mrs. Claus

Michael, Olivia, his niece and his sister

My mom got me a beautiful, custom ornament

All three of us at his work holiday party.  The party was a while ago, but they just released the professional photos.  I love this one of us!

Church on Christmas Eve.  Our pastor reading a story to the children

Olivia opening some Christmas books we got her on Christmas Eve so we could read them before bed.

Candy at 7am?  It must be Christmas!!

Santa brought someone a piano for Christmas

so focused

After I did Christmas morning with Michael and Olivia, I spent the day with my family and we had a big Christmas dinner.  All in all, it was a great holiday season.  Now on to the new year!


  1. What a fun holiday!! I can't believe you were the escort for Santa!! xo, Biana

  2. Looks like a great time. Do the headphones connect to the piano to allow for an audience of one? That might be genius!
