Moments of Christmas Splendour
Raffi's Christmas album blaring in the kitchen making me and my sis so happy.
Frosty the Snowman on repeat for Elijah...oh his awesome little foot stomp!
How the kids loved peeling back the days on the Christmas Calendar, taking turns so graciously.
The black forest dulce de leche cake that did not quite make it till Christmas...and all the adults sneaking the left overs in a huddled frenzy.
A beautiful relaxed morning of crafting our Christmas tree, making paper flowers, snowflake garlands and Clara's awesome tarantula decoration.
Elijah and Zia Jen gluing on the tree ornaments with such focus.
Nathaniel puddle jumping with glee... man that kid can jump!
Papa's impromptu pouring rain beach walk with the kids.
Frosty the Snowman braving the Mexican heat and leaving matching p.j's for all five of our munchkins.
Making Christmas eve dinner...mmm...chicken with mole sauce...
Elijah and Clara 'cheersing' their chicken feet!
Clara's epic Santa planning process- from how he will get it to the house without getting caught in the net to making sure he would also get some presents (which she thoughtfully wrapped in an entire roll of paper towel).
Papa's cooler of beautiful pink snapper!
The stockings that were hung on the hammock with care.
Reid and Dan's amazing piñata hanging, rope braiding, giggling escapade.
Bursting with Christmas morning excitement.
Elijah being so stoked that Santa left snacks in his stocking-especially the strawberry biscuit.
Clara trying gum for the first time.
Nathaniel's impressive Sponge Bob embroidery.
Papa's amazing top spinning ability, seriously he has some skill!
The massive Scorpion that wished me a Merry Christmas in my bathroom.
Dan and the kids playing with their new fishing rods.
The kids waiting so long and so patiently to bust open that piñata!
Chillin' in the family hammock.
The simplicity of everything that made it so rich.
Ahh Moments of Christmas Splendour.
