Pre-Christmas Christmas

Every year Zach and I go away on a Christmas trip to exchange our gifts. We keep one or two to open for each other at the other two Christmases (his parents and my mom’s) but we open most of them on our trip. I really like this tradition as it keeps us focused on each other during a time of year that’s SO easy to get really wrapped up in the kids, all the gatherings, and the long to-do lists. I think it’s nice that we take time out just to be together and that we exchange our gifts just the two of us. I hope it’s something we continue to do as Kye grows older!!!

Here’s our little tree with our gifts

we always wrap our gifts very pretty…here’s Zach with his

We just took our time opening gifts and enjoying the morning together! After our busy day movie watching and pizza eating we had a fun Christmas night in just watching X-Files (I got Zach ALL the seasons a couple years ago and we’re still only on Season 3!) and drinking hot chocolate!
