Christmas 2015

We started off the holiday on the morning of December 23 with an early morning visit to Santa!


That night my sister and Dave threw me an amazing surprise 30th birthday party! I knew there was some sort of surprise happening, but had no clue it was a party with all my favorite people! My sister put so much work into it and it was perfect. It was at the new Foxcroft Wine Shop in Dilworth, such a great spot. Tons of champagne, wine and great food! 

On Christmas Eve we had my traditional birthday breakfast. I love this tradition that we've been doing my whole life! All of my family comes over and we have mimosas and eggs benedict. My two besties (and godparents to the twins) were able to be there this year too! This was the best birthday yet. It was so sad without my dad, but everyone helped make it extra special. Normally after breakfast we all get ready and go to church, but this year we skipped due to the twins' schedule. So after some relaxing time at home, we went and met friends for a beer at Wooden Robot and then went to dinner at Rock Salt. 


Christmas morning was so fun! We woke up with the twins and showed them all their Santa presents. Of course they didn't get it, but we loved seeing them with their new toys- even though we mainly gave them practical gifts like clothes. I did splurge and get them Noodle & Boo wash and lotion- it smells amazing! 


Later we headed over to my sister's for a late brunch and presents. I love seeing what Santa brings my nephews and niece! And they were so excited to give presents to James & Eloise. We didn't stay too long because we had to  head home to let the twins nap while we got everything ready to host Christmas dinner. Such a busy day, but all so fun and exciting.


I couldn't have asked for a better first Christmas with the twins and first Christmas without my dad. Holidays with parents or family are not easy. I'm so thankful I had Eloise & James here this year with us!
