We had such a great Christmas this year. We woke up Christmas morning and had a good time opening up presents, being cozy in our jammies and just moving slow. I love having days where I get to move slow and I love our home, it's just so cozy and Christmas day had reminded of that all day long.
It took us forever to get moving but after a little play time, we finally got dressed and headed out to go beach combing. Finding shells and exploring the beach is so much fun for all of us. And when we got down there Marty pointed out that we WERE having a white Christmas afterall - white sand that is....
It was a bit chilly but our sweatshirts kept us warm. Well, LJ got cold and stole daddies sweatshirt. Which is funny seeing an extra large hooded sweatshirt on a 2 yr old who still wears 18 month clothing. LJ looked a bit like an ewok running around in that huge sweatshirt. All you could see was the shirt with little red boots sticking out the bottom. BJ was the only one brave enough to get his feet in the water, I think he would have walked in a lot further if I had let him. He carried the shell bucket proudly and was ready to pack every shell on that beach home. I kept having to remind him that we needed to leave some for the other little boys that might be out to go shell hunting later, to which he'd say something like "Oh. Yeah!"
We even found a few empty horseshoe crab shells! This was the bigger one we found, although the front was broken, it was still very cool to find. A bit like the Sherman tanks of crab shells, don't you think?
Pete was a bit like a kid in a candy store. The beach is his favorite place, in THE WORLD. This photo makes me laugh because he was just running so fast. He'd get ahead of us just a tad, and turn back and rip by us like a fighter jet buzzing the tower. We clearly weren't moving fast enough for him so this was his way of staying close and getting his fun in. Just look at his face, it's got FUN written all over it, lol!
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
