Haha I seriously am obsessed with this bear.

It was actually kind of annoying to take this pic because our remote sucks so we only took a couple pics and then said okay nevermind not worth a pic this is too annoying.. then later I looked at the couple we took and we happened to get one with us all smiling!Barefoot BlondeBarefoot BlondeBarefoot Blonde^^My dad with Rosie Belle and look at that smile!Barefoot Blonde


Here are some photos from our Christmas! Atticus made this Christmas sooo much fun.. I was giddy and couldn’t sleep the night before because I was so excited to see his reactions in the morning. One thing I love about Atticus is how expressive he is.. he gets SOOO excited about everything (which also means he gets SOO sad about things too haha) but its so fun watching him flap his arms around and smile and gasp when he gets to open gifts. When he saw his bear he stopped in his tracks, dropped his bottle and stuffed bear and ran to him with the biggest smile ever – we got video of it and it was so cute!

I loved our Christmas jammies this year and love that we all got matching ones! I ordered them way back at the beginning of October and they were backordered but still supposed to arrive in time.. it was SUCH a pain getting them and I never did get my matching top but I am glad we ended up getting everyone else’s even if it took many phone calls and a lot of work ha. Matching Christmas pj’s are so fun. We also loved reading about all of your Christmas traditions in the comments and started some of them this year so thank you for all your fun ideas!

Hope you all had a great Christmas

  1. Your family is adorable I’m in love!!! The pajamas are adorable and so cute how you all matched! Been reading your blogs every day and it makes me smile. You’re all gorgeous and Rosie and Atticus are beautiful! I love your hair tutorials, but it’s really hard to do most of the braids because I don’t have as much hair as you 🙁 I live in Florida but I come to NY often so I hope I could bump into you!

    1. Thank you so much love!! You are too nice 🙂 I am so happy you follow along, it makes me so happy!! I hope we can run into each other someday too!! xo

  2. Oh no! I have to see that video ! I really hope you decide to share it!!
    And I haven’t seen a picture of your dad before and you guys are like two drops of water! Identical! Hahaha so funny!! 🙂

  3. Amber, I have read your blog for years but honestly I think this is my favourite post ever. I adore your Christmas ! That bugaboo pendleton is beautiful, we have a bugaboo and my husband lives in pendleton shirts that we have shipped to the uk from America, he can’t believe the crossover! And I just adore the carols in washington square park, that huge bear and all of your matching pj’s. I’m definitely adding matching pj’s to our Xmas traditions list. So far we have: my husband and I have Xmas eve hot chocolates/ gingerbread lattes in a local cafe, we go to a tiny church on Xmas eve in the north Yorkshire moors where we live (this year they had donkeys there and we all sang little donkey to them!), we visit this huuuge stately home a couple of days before Xmas which has a farmers market, candles and Xmas trees in every room and a pianist by an enormous tree playing Xmas songs, and we do the Xmas eve box which has pj’s, a tree decoration, a toy (teddy this year as shes only 1) and a book in it for Xmas eve. We were intending to add a dvd and hot chocolate for future years but having read your post I think I’ll get a bigger box and add whole family pj’s (dog included) too! I’ll also add baking to our traditions as you did. Thank you for the inspiration 🙂 Cara xx

    1. Thanks so much Cara!! I am so happy you have been such a loyal follower over the years 🙂 I am glad you liked the post too!! I can’t believe the holidays are already over 🙁 I love our traditions that you and your husband have!! How fun is that?! We may need to try a few of those next year. Thanks for sharing!! xo

  4. I love love love this! I adore how you put a sheet down for little A to decorate cookies and I love how your dad makes you all fresh OJ from home grown much stinking fun is that?!? I wish we could grow citrus in OK, but no such luck. I love the adorable matching PJ’s as well…too cute! Keep up your fun traditions, your children will have the best memories of them!

  31. I don’t know what type of camera you have, but there’s a fairly good phone app for Canon called…Camera Connect. It acts as a remote, and you don’t have to wait for a timer.

  36. Awwee this is just breathtakingly adorable! I love Christmas and can spend hours looking at people’s Christmasphotos. I love how everyone had their own traditions and ways of celebrating. I’m from Sweden and we celebrate Christmas Eve and not Christmas Day wich is a bit strange I think since there is not many country’s who does this. But I sure did have a fantastic Christmas and New Years but now the fun’s over and right now I’m stufying for a huge test next week. I am studying to become a preschool teacher and only have one year left of the university (of a total of 3,5 years). Thank you for such a wonderful blog and you are so inspiring and I always leave your blog with a huge grin on my face, so thank you!

    Wish you and your family the best!

    1. Thank you so much Lina!! And I agree!! I am so sad the holidays are over 🙁 And no way?! That is so interesting!! I would love to learn more about how other country’s celebrate the holidays. Thanks for sharing that!! I appreciate it! And Happy New Year!! Good luck studying!! Keep up the hard work 🙂 Thanks for reading!! xoxo

  37. I am really happy to see your parents were there to have a very happy Christmas 🙂 I absolutely love Christmas, but it wasn’t the same because my dad has been away for almost 5 month on deployment :/
    I’m glad A was very excited for his bear just as much as you were :)I loved Rosie’s outfit and bow, it made my heart melt ! I also agree matching PJs are the best! It was our first year doing it and I loved it! Have an amazing week with your beautiful family!!!
    oh and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

    1. Thanks so much Emily!! It was so great having them here 🙂 And oh I am sorry! That must be so tough around the holidays especially. I hope you get to see him soon! Thanks again for the sweet comment!! It made my day!! Happy New Year to you as well!! xo
