A magical white Christmas

Christmas was in one word, MAGICAL!

There was eating, drinking, sledding, singing, dancing, napping, movie watching…

We were all together as a family having the most magical white Christmas.

Everyone got lots of wonderful gifts but, the best gift of all was for all of us to be able to be together.

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas as well! 🙂

Here are some (a lot) of pictures of Christmas eve and Christmas day.

Lil pink snow bunny

Yesterday was the first time that Lily got to really play with snow. (last year doesn’t really count since she was only a little over 1 month old)

We dressed her up in the pink snowsuit that used to be cousin Adelaide’s that aunt Desiree sent. (thank you!!)

We put her $6 snow boots on, and she was good to go!

I think for the most part she thought the snow was OK.

She had a hard time walking in it and didn’t really care to venture out in it too much.

She did however love the sledding part.

She just leaned back and enjoyed the ride.

Here are some fun pictures of our lil snow bunny Lily. 🙂

Miami Children’s Museum

On saturday we were invited to meet some friends at the Miami Children’s Museum.

It was our first time there and we had a blast!

There was so much to do. That place is HUGE!

We will definitely go back!

P.S.- I would also like to add that Lily looked exceptionally cute in her jumper that tio Ricky and Anabela sent her from Portugal and sandals that were a gift from aunt Desiree.

Family, it’s a wonderful thing

We had a wonderful weekend with the whole family together.

Something that doesn’t happen as often as we would all like.

It was wonderful seeing Lily and Adelaide play together. The two cousins had not seen each other since Christmas time and Lily was not even 2 months old then.

There was some fishing in the pond, lots of running around with the dogs, blackberry picking, rolling on the grass, and lots of good cooking by avo Hayes.

It’s wonderful to be surrounded by family and nature all around. I feel so blessed to be a part of it all.

Things we LOVE!

We finally got some family pictures printed and inside the Sassy Photo Album we got for Lily and we all LOVE it!!!

Inside the album we have pictures of family that Lily has met but hasn’t seen in a long time and of family that Lily has not yet met.

There is a picture of avo Carmo, avo Hayes, avo Joao, avo Ricardo, uncle Jud, aunt Sarah, tio Ricky, Anabela, cousin Adelaide, aunt Desiree and prima Ana!

We know there is lots more family on both sides but, there were only 8 slots. 😉

Love you all!!!

Here is Lily with her family album. Lily wears shirt and shorts by Old Navy.
