Hello! Merry Christmas!
Hope your holidays were amazing and filled with a lot of wonderful family memories!!
This has been one of my favorite Christmases of all so far! I don’t know what was so different, if I just perceived it different or what, but it was a lot of fun.
Here are a few highlights from our Christmas!
Making of the Gingerbread Houses… This is the first year I found (Walmart) a kit for all of us to make our own house, and boy were our girls excited! They always get upset that they don’t get to make the whole house alone, so this gave them that chance..and for me to make my own!
And, they came out great!
Niece’s Birthday Fun- My niece is also afflicted with a ‘Xmas birthday’- her, myself, my mom; and we don’t let it get us down. This year she opted for a family only party, so my sister took us for a carriage ride through Boston and a hop through Faneuil Hall before cake and presents back home. It was a fun time!
Christmas Eve and Christmas Day!
Our staycation in Boston:
Saturday morning my husband decided last minute that he wanted to take us ‘away’ to soak up some more holiday fun in the city. It was the only weekend we had no other obligations, so he must’ve felt odd staying home. hah… He made the calls and before noon we were jetting off for an overnight in town, at the Revere Hotel by the Commons.
The hotel: It is a gorgeous boutique type of hotel in the heart of Boston. Super swank, and I was greeted with champagne, which means I was happy. 🙂 Here are some shots of the interior of the hotel and the views from our room/balcony. We stayed on the 24th floor in room 2410 over-looking the commons.
Our Saturday and Sunday: We spent Saturday night leisurely walking cross the Common through Downtown all they way to Faneuil Hall. There we enjoyed Blink, their new annual show of lights, and some dinner fun at Wagamama and dessert at Ghirardelli. It was a great time and the girls were so happy to see all the holiday themed fun. Sunday we hung local for brunch at the hotel’s Rustic Kitchen, which was super delish, and then ran to the MFA, and it was great.
A few holiday related randos…
Christmas break has just begun, and we have a whole lot planned, but you know what else is planned? RELAXING, which I definitely need. And a diet. OYE!
So let’s cheer to that!!
