A Simple Sparkles Holiday Celebration

For the holidays, we were very lucky to be able to celebrate with our family over the course of several days. First, we had our annual cookie baking day on the 23rd, then on Christmas Eve, we celebrated with G’s family and then on Christmas Day we had a big breakfast with both families before we spent the rest of the day with my family. Over the course of the holidays, we had a lot of reminiscing and laughing, Christmas movies and hot chocolate, games and treats. It was a great year and we’re always thankful to be able to spent time with our loved ones. I wanted to share just a few photos from around our celebrations!
