LaRoy Family Christmas

Soo Christmas still wasn’t done, and it was almost New Years’! We spent our last day in Michigan with James’ sister, her husband, aaaand their daughter whom we got to meet for our first time since her birth…last year! What a precious little darling she is, with the biggest smile, sweetest disposition, and really great parents […]

Other Christmas fun.

Corban learned Sorry! with his aunts. His pieces somehow always ended up in his home waaaay before the other players’ pieces. He loved it.  Grammie-Jaeda time. It had to be forced, but then the cuddles really began. Mi amor y yo. So many games were opened and learned and played. Hours and hours and hours. Jaeda tried to […]

Opening presents is a family affair.

Opening presents is a family affair.

Our big Christmas meal is on Christmas Eve. We love it that way, because we make it so big that we can eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Christmas. No cooking, just present-opening, present-playing, and overall lounging around. The.best. With 18-20 present-openers (girlfriends were in and out:)), our one tree just couldn’t contain them all. […]

Our little family Christmas

Our little family Christmas

We’re still figuring out how our own family Christmas will work. We currently celebrate just us at some point before we leave to be with family. Maybe in the future this will be on Christmas Day, but for now, we really love using James’ time off to be with our extended family Christmas Day. So Tuesday […]

Preparing for Christmas

Preparing for Christmas

The day we got home from Thanksgiving celebrations, we picked up a tree and brought up the Christmas boxes. Sometimes I wonder why we do it all for just over a month of this Christmas season, but there’s something about the traditions and specialness of the season that just requires different decorations. As James was […]

Christmas Twice

Christmas Twice

Once at home, starting with the Christmas story. Bought this nativity from an Etsy seller ($20, painted and stained?!). Love it specifically because it’s a bit abstract which allows for plenty of imagination and the kids can’t break it! Win-win:) We gave the kids three gifts each…and they couldn’t even open them all! Spent plenty of time […]

Christmas Stockings

Christmas Stockings

Corban got a scooter decal this year to represent his athleticism (and blatant love for scooters). It also reminds of many scooterings to our park, falling down, learning new things, beating fear, meeting lovely neighbors, and breathing fresh air. I’m sure the scooter will be a big part of next year as well, but it […]

O {Felt} Christmas Tree

O {Felt} Christmas Tree

Felt Christmas tree: This is totally a Pinterest idea (as are the stockings from the last post), but I tell you I’m committed to actually doing what I pin! I bought a yard of green felt to make the tree; it was actually more than I needed. $3.97 + $1.44 for Command sticky strips Then I cut up more […]

Early Christmas

Early Christmas

We celebrated Thanksgiving (that post will be next…yes, I realize it’s out of order, but it’ll be okay!) with the Hutchens this weekend. And Corban’s birthday (which will be next, next). And Christmas (which, in case you haven’t caught on is right now!). I have been sooo excited for this year’s gift-giving and have been […]
