I was really grateful for how “normal” our Christmas was this year while we are living in an RV. • It just really made me realize that our life and traditions are set up around things that last. Things that have roots. Things that aren’t based on locations or stuff. But on being with those that matter. • I also realize how blessed we are to have had 3 of our family members fly out to be with us. Which is an insane privilege. And we definitely wish that all of our family could have all flown out! But having them with us made it feel like little had changed! And we got to share our adventures with them too! Which was such a treat! • But we still made peanut blossoms, and eggnog French toast, and put together legos. The kids still got new Christmas PJ’s (thanks @granniangie54 !). And some fun new trucker hats and new books! • Living in a travel trailer didn’t change much for us this Christmas, except for in all the right ways. We got to be outside more, enjoying new places with some of those we love! And we spent less time and money on things that we will quickly give away to the Goodwill. • All in all. I think it was a win-win! •

← Ok, so finally getting caught up on some holiday posting.. better late than never. Christmas take 2! • We got the chance to spend our second Christmas celebration in Austin/Lockhart Texas area with my mom. • It was so cool to get to go to the and see the amazing display of Christmas lights with about 1 million other people . (We definitely have the best ability to pick the busiest nights of the year to visit every place). But it was seriously magical and cool to experience something that is such a big part of the Austin Christmas experience. • We found out about the trail of lights from some friendly Texans that we met while shopping at #walmart. They said it was a must see and they were right. Crowds and all. Such a great adventure! •
“Buy experiences not things. Experiences make people happier than spending on things. Things get broken over time and go out of style. Experiences get better every time you talk about them.” ~ Jean Chatsky • Taking the girls to see the Moscow Ballet perform the Nutcracker was definitely one of my favorite gifts we gave the girls this Christmas. • From watching their excitement to get dressed up, to their looks of pure amazement as the ballerinas twirled around the stage. • I am grateful for each of these experiences that we are having and will hopefully talk about about for many years to come. What kind of memorable experiences did you have with your family this year? • →
