The week leading up to Christmas was absolutely magical with Annabelle! Even with not going to our typical Christmas events, thanks COVID, we still had a blast! We just reinvented December, just like we have been doing for 9 months now, the glass is always 1/2 full here so we make the best of every situation.
Her excitement every day was so fun, whether it is was looking for Jingles the elf, reading letters from Santa, or wrapping presents. Brian took off work so we did fun activities every afternoon, went hunting for Christmas lights, baked & decorated cookies and had some social distanced present drop offs.
We hope everyone had a very safe, magical, & Merry Christmas!
Love to all - Brian, Mandy, Annabelle, & Bug
