Christmas in Fenwick Island, Delaware| Lindsey Mix Photography

My husband and I are so lucky that both of our parents live in such cool places. His, in the Adirondacks, and mine, in Fenwick Island. Christmas Eve this year we packed up the sled and headed south. I assured our five year old that Santa would definitely know where Nana's house was. I also assured her that he would also be more likely to deliver her much sought after nutcracker to Nana's house since they are used to decorate wall to wall!

That's right, my kid's sought after, must-have, can't.live.without gift request this year: a Nutcracker. I think she was slightly convinced that he would be magic and take her off to visit with the Sugar Plum Fairy but alas, that part was not meant to be.

It's next to impossible for me to summarize this time with my family by choosing just one picture a day. I could have picked pictures of the tree or the stockings...or the nutcrackers that lined the walls, but honestly...when I remember this Christmas, those aren't the things that I will treasure. A pretty tree is worth the memories, but a picture of the day...that goes to family:

Here was Uncle Jay helping with Legos December 23:

Christmas morning my DSLR stayed on the kitchen counter and I hunkered down with my babies and watched the magic of Christmas. I watched the boxes pile up and the wrapping paper fly. I chased my little guy around trying to keep him from eating things he shouldn't. I spent that day with my family. Completely present.

I have a few iphone photos that will make it in the family album...but just so you can share a little of our Christmas joy with us, here's a video of my girl opening her Nutcracker from Santa.
