I wanted to post a quick recap of our Christmas 2020 for documentation purposes!
Christmas was a bit wonky this year – I was scheduled to work nights on the 24th, 25th and 26th which was a bummer but by some magical mystical Christmas miracle, I got call on the night of Christmas! Which was great because I didin’t get much sleep after I worked on Christmas Eve.
Carver and Gannon opened presents at our house on Christmas Eve morning, I didn’t want to miss it because of work. We’ve never really done Santa at our house but Carver was super excited about Santa this year, he heard about it at school and so we played along and it was fun!
I made a little scavenger hunt with the boys and hid the presents all around the house and the grand finale was in the garage. Carver got a new bike (without training wheels) and Gannon got a nice new bike carrier for when we hit the trails again this summer.
The boys also got and are obsessed with everything LEGOS! Here they are playing so nicely together 🙂 In fact, Gannon had a meltdown (he is MASTER of the meltdown lately) when I told him to put his Legos away and take a nap:
And of course, I fell for the commercialism of matching Christmas pajamas so here are those pics! Obviously Gannon is NOT a fan of pictures! I’m super nervous because he’s in a wedding on Thursday and he. does. not. like. pictures. right. now.
Carver loved the Santa scavenger hunt and honestly, I did too. We made sure to watch Carver’s favorite movie – The Star – that tells the story of Jesus’ birth in a really cute hilarious and easy to understand way. I don’t have many pictures of the scavenger hunt – I video taped it instead for years to come and revisit the joy.
The FUNNIEST part was when we were out in the garage, Carver was VERY surprised and confused to see that SANTA WAS DRINKING DADDY’s BEER! This was totally unprovoked on our part – out of the blue Carver sees a few beer cans sitting on the bar and put two and two and two together and assumed Santa was drinking Daddy’s beer! HA!
Anyway, I was going to make one big Christmas post but I’m just finishing day one of Christmas and that’s enough for a blog post so I’m going to call that good for now!
Quite honestly, this year didn’t feel like Christmas at all to me. It’s been a weird year and many of our Christmas traditions weren’t the same or cancelled altogether. It’s just one year, I sure hope next year is a little more magical.
