Christmas with our “bubble family” was a nice change of pace from just the four of us. We fried up a turkey and had plenty of treats on hand for a crazy, sugar-filled way to end the holiday!
It was a very lazy day that started at 7am with gifts from Santa and ended with the requisite Zoom gathering of the day. It was very low key, but as an added bonus, we spent the day in our pajamas!
It was a quiet Christmas Eve, just the four of us. But thanks to Zoom, some presents and some excellent take out, we managed to enjoy the day!
What a year it has been, but we have a card of all of us smiling to show we can do hard things! Merry Christmas – here’s to a better year in 2021!
The pandemic couldn’t stop a visit with the Pentagon City Santa – our ninth year running! We picked an off time and had the place to ourselves for a quick in and out. While Colin walked through his and Owen’s lists, Owen wanted nothing to do with any of it. But, we made it through…
Despite some early starts around town, we waited until after Thanksgiving to bring some Christmas spirit to our house. We focused on getting tree, as even with a prepaid reservation, we heard things were getting scarce around town. Only two broken (and repaired) ornaments later, the tree was up!
After a trip up north and some quality time at home, we celebrated a third and final Christmas with the Tucker side of the family!
For the first time in a very long while, we were at our own home for Christmas, and it was glorious! We had the turkey dinner we missed on Thanksgiving while in Finland, the kids all played nicely, and Santa made it a special day!
This year, we started the Christmas festivities in CT – complete with great family, yummy food, rambunctious kids and good, ol’ gag gifts. It was a whirlwind weekend that, as a bonus, ended with some Star Wars and Frozen 2!
