Chilly End to 2017

In what seemed like a good idea when the temperature was still in the 50s, we got tickets to ring in New Years’ Eve at Busch Gardens’ Christmas Town. The below-freezing reality of the day was a bit of a challenge, but we managed to fit in a lot as we celebrated the end of…

White Christmas!

While there has been snow on the ground in Christmases past, I can’t remember the last time I woke up on Christmas morning to falling snow. So amazing! The day only got better as the boys opened their presents and spent another fun-filled afternoon with family!

Adventures of Christmas Eve

The family fun of Christmas begins on Christmas Eve! Compared with last year, Owen was a more willing participant, so it was an even more fun and crazy experience!

Christmas in MD 2017

It’s always a delight to get the family together to celebrate the holidays, and this year was no different. With Owen decidedly in the mix of seven boys on the Tucker side, the chaos was palpable. Here are some of the calmer moments…

Two-Kid Santa Victory

It was a rough visit for some, but both boys got some quality time with Santa at the Pentagon City mall. Colin had his list in photos on the phone, so was all set, but Owen was more worried about getting out of there quick!

Family Christmas #2

Christmas day was another whirlwind of activity and family fun! Colin was very into Santa’s visit, but Owen decided to sleep in. We’ll see if the same holds next year!

Christmas Eve – A First For One

With a short, but momentous flight (being Owen’s first), we were in Connecticut for the Christmas holiday! Christmas Eve was a whirlwind of activity, meeting new relatives, playing with cousins, getting spoiled by Nonna, visiting with Santa and even jamming to some live music!

Family Christmas #1

With family (somewhat) near and far, we get to enjoy a few holiday celebrations. First up was time in Maryland with the Tucker side. To help get into the holiday spirit further, we even caught a screening of the truly uplifting Rogue One (cough, cough).
