One mom's attempt at finding good in every day of this chaotic world.

The Christmas Post – Part 2 January 21, 2014

Filed under: Daily Blog — Robin @ findgoodineveryday @ 8:17 pm

It seems like Christmas was forever ago, so doing a Christmas post in mid-January seems odd.  But it’s what time has allowed me, so here we go.

After enjoying our first Christmas morning in our new house, we drove to Maryland for Christmas #2 at Nana and Papa’s.  Luckily there was little to no traffic, so we arrived in just six hours.  Phew!  The kids were a bit tired after a day in the car, and I could tell they had wanted to play with their new toys at home more.  But when they saw the presents under Nana and Papa’s tree, they quickly forgot about all that and were ready for the next round.

More presents = more fun!

More presents = more fun!

After lots of unwrapping, it was time for the annual Christmas Stairs photos.  When I first set up the tripod and timer, I accidentally set it to the continuous shots.  We realized that quickly, but decided to keep it for the next round.  Jeremy’s instructions: Pretend we’re on a roller coaster.  Below are the last 2 of the 5, but enough proof that everyone got in on the fun.

After a couple of days of relaxing, watching Despicable Me 2 (finally!), catching up on HGTV, and eating (Have you tried Trader Joe’s Jingle Jangle? It’s addictive so watch out!), we managed to get out to the real world and meet up with friends.  It’s always nice to have the chance to connect with old friends, so we’re especially appreciative when they make time in their busy schedules to hang out with us.  All in all, this leg of the trip was a perfect 2nd Christmas.  So what could be good enough to follow it?  Round 3!  Stay tuned for the next and final installment of The Christmas Post.
