December Recap {2018}

Testing, testing.... so yeah, I totally didn't mean to take a 4 month blogging break but yep, it happened! No real reason other than I am just busy with life and blogging was obviously last on the list. But,  I still need to recap our December!!  It's my favorite time of the year and I always tell myself to soak up the moments and even though I do, it still flies by.

We went downtown to see Santa and have lunch at the Walnut Room. I was a little bummed because the Santa was clearly younger than the previous year and Brayden noticed.  He obviously knows there are plenty of helper Santas but we were all convinced the last year Santa was the REAL Santa.



We had our annual cookie/pierogi day and made a bunch of yummy stuff!!!



We went and saw the zoo lights and had perfect weather!


I hosted another family craft day and love what we made!

We drove around to look at lights in our jammies, drinking hot chocolate - the kids LOVE this so much

We built our annual gingerbread house and managed to only get a small headache LOL


Avery had her last preschool winter performance and I was so present knowing this. I may have shed a few tears too

We celebrated a few Christmas's

and our elf sent us off with a North Pole breakfast!!


Christmas Eve night we celebrated first at our house with my family then headed to my aunts

Christmas morning we were woke VERY EARLY with excited kiddos! We got a few more minutes of sleep then it was downstairs to see all the goodies! The kids were all so excited and thankful for what they got which always makes us so happy.



Later in the day we went to church, then my in laws to celebrate some more.  It was a great day!

NYE we went to my BIL & SIL's house and feasted on delicious food and yummy drinks and actually made it to midnight!! woohoo!


 and that's how our 2019 concluded!! I cannot even believe how far we are into 2019 that this all seems like a distant memory already! but we had an amazing 2018 and I truly hope for the same in 2019!!
