Christmas with the Coles

Hi guys! Thought I’d give you a little inside look at our Christmas this year. We had four Christmas’ this year between both families & these pictures capture it perfectly because it shares the messy-ness, joy, and love it brought us this year. Having an (almost) five year old in the house means Christmas was serious business, particularly for mom, dad, Santa, and Charlie (our elf on the shelf). Charlie came up with some pretty creative ways to say good morning to Ella every day and I think it was just as fun for us as it was for her. Thanks for being willing to try just about everything Charlie šŸ˜‰

One thing I was reminded of this Christmas was how much true joy it bringsĀ parents when they watch their kids light up. Nothing makes me more happy than seeing my kids happy, and that’s the truth!

I hope you all had a fun-filled & memorable Christmas with your families!

I’ll start with the messy/blurry/realistic/not-so-perfectly-captured pictures… because that’s real life over here most of the time.

p.s. ALL my daughter talked about was THIS barbie house… this particular one. It had to have the elevator, garage, and pool (it’s seriously been upgraded since I was a kid!) – her dream came true and she’s been glued it to it ever since! Thank you Santa!
