I hope that you and your family had a truly wonderful Christmas!
I know that we did. It's been colder here, but we were spared the snow that our northern neighbors got. I personally missed the white Christmas! But we were able to enjoy an afternoon at the park today without snow boots and winter coats, so that's something!
As much as I try to make Christmas not about the gifts, after a morning spent with family opening said gifts, I can't help but encourage the boys to enjoy those gifts and all the love they were wrapped in. And this was a good year for gifts. Lots of games, books, crafts, and things to be enjoyed outside as a family.
From under this year's tree, here are a few of our favorite outdoor gifts:
- skateboards, helmets, and pads
- street hockey goal, sticks, and balls
- walkie talkies that have the boys tromping all through the yard just to find each other again
- a mini trampoline
- lots of tools
- and a tent big enough for our family
What was under your tree this year and how have you enjoyed Christmas outside?
