Christmas Chaos

Once again, Christmas was the right amount of fun, magic and chaos!

A Happy Christmas Eve

This Christmas Eve had a little less Zoom and a little more family, but it was still relatively low-key given omicron. You wouldn’t know it by all the noise that four boys can make it one house though!

A Friendly Christmas

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!

Christmas Just The Four of Us

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!

Christmas Eve in 2020

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!

Merry Christmas!

A Masked Santa This Year

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…

Holiday Decorating 2020
