Hope everyone had a safe and wonderful Christmas holiday! I feel like this whole month was a complete blur. Even with all that is going on with the pandemic, it did not slow us down one bit! We did all the things and more! The magic of Christmas was alive and well in the Dietrich household! Now let’s bring on a new year!
The boys are loving the magic of Christmas this year!
We finished adding the final touches to the Christmas decor this week, so it was time to bust out the matching pajamas and take our annual family photo in front of our tree. Didn’t go as big as I usually do this year, I usually like them pretty fat and basically touching the ceiling, but this year I decided to go with a tree that better fit the space and didn’t overwhelm. The boys helped me a lot this year! They even have their very own Charlie Brown tree that they got to decorate all on their own! It’s pretty cute…
Ladies & gentlemen, if you have not been to North Carolina with your children during the fall… PLEASE GO! A few weeks
(maybe months, I’m not sure when we went to be honest) ago, we had big plans of going out of the country with our family (inlaws, kids, the works). Literally… LITERALLY… 4 days before we were supposed to leave I cancelled our side of the trip. It was probably one of the hardest decisions for me as I HATE disappointing people and letting people down. Now, I’m sure I took this decision way harder than anyone else in our group, but I know I made the right choice and will forever appreciate our time in North Carolina during 2020. To be able to get away during this horrendous pandemic was such a breath of fresh mountain air! And a very welcome break from the Florida heat :). We did ALL THE THINGS including apple picking and visiting the Biltmore Estate, we conquered the Pinball Museum and hiked to some waterfalls, we ate so much food and watched many sunsets… it was perfect. Just what my mama heart needed.
I hope you enjoy these (not perfectly aligned) pictures ;). I still haven’t figured out the new layout and probably never will… sorry folks!
