Christmas in Virginia

We just got home from a fantastic week at home for Christmas. We didn't do some of our normal Christmas traditions this year but we also made some new ones (read: make guacamole on Christmas Eve & have it while we're decorating Christmas cookies!). We had some amazing family time and it was so good to be able to spend so much time at home. Here is our week in a nutshell. We weren't that great at taking pictures so this is what you get!

decorating Christmas cookies

opening presents on Christmas morning

adoring our lovable dogs

ice skating in DC

and best of all: simply getting to spend time with my wonderful family (husband & cousins included!)

Now I'm back to work for a couple days, then we're off to have our second Christmas with my husband's family! I hope you're enjoying Christmas season (not just the day) like we are!


  1. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! Michael and I miss you guys!

  2. I was in Virginia for Christmas too!! You and your sisters all look so beautiful together - I'm so glad you liked my brownie recipe. Have a great weekend!
