Christmas in Florida {2014}

We had such a wonderful, warm Christmas in Florida with my family. I’ve never cherished family time more than ever before and it was super hard to leave this time. Caroline brought so much joy to everyone this Christmas and I know this is a year that we will never forget. Watching her experience Christmas was one of my happiest mommy moments to date and to think it only gets better absolutely blows my mind.

Caroline was an absolute rock star for her first flight. She hammed it up with all the passengers as we boarded, passed out at takeoff and awoke upon landing. Matt and I were so relieved as we weren’t sure how things would go and pretty much packed a huge carry-on full of distractions for her.

As soon as we arrived Grandpa immediately let Caroline open a few of her Christmas gifts. He just couldn’t wait.

On Christmas morning we got up bright and early, ate a huge mimosa breakfast and opened lots of presents. Santa spoiled all of us rotten this year.

Caroline was a huge fan of bows and tissue paper just as we suspected. After the first few presents she had it all figured out and was so adorable to watch.

Other activities we enjoyed during our trip included visits with my besties Ashley, May and Shannon, fishtail hair braids, competitive games of Tic Stac Toe, Old Fashioned tutorials and more.

And that’s a wrap on Christmas 2014!

    So glad you guys had such a wonderful Christmas! And Caroline is an absolute rock star for doing such a great job on your flight – I have been terrified of having to fly anywhere with Caleb simply because I am worried that I will definitely end up being that mom with a screaming child in a confined space. Eeek!

    So glad your first flight went so well, its always nerve-wracking but always better than your imagination leads you to think it will be!!!!! Caroline is just the sweetest little girl. Your Christmas looked so wonderful, but as you said, it makes parting that much harder when there's another person in the mix to miss. Wishing you a wonderful 2015 xx
