It’s one of our favorite nights of the year…Jammy Cocoa Christmas.
If you don’t know what that is, here you go…
Fun, right?! This is something we talk about year around, so it’s always so special when the big night actually arrives.
This year, we did this on Monday night…
After dinner, we quickly showered and got into our pajamas and were ready to roll!
I LOVE how much Andrew Shull LOVES Christmas too. He makes it so fun for our family!! We’re all loaded in the car and headed to Starbucks.
That unicorn blanket that Kensington is wearing keeps me laughing all the time. Hahahaha! Here they are placing their orders. The two big girls ordered peppermint hot cocoa, Smith ordered regular and then they each got a cookie/cake pop/etc to eat too.
Madeley totally “gets” Christmas this year. Last year, we had only been home two months and everything was so new to her…but this year, she is totally into the holidays. This girl can even sing some Christmas songs 🙂 . It MELTS MY HEART!
Starbucks in our pjs for the win!
Oh Smith. Sigh. We’re all waiting for our drinks to be made 🙂 .
Getting back into the car and ready to hit the road!
I’ve been enjoying their “Joy” tea this holiday season. It was perfect for the drive around town.
We listened to carols and looked at lights for about an hour. I cherish these memories so very much. I looooove my little family!!
And then right before bed, it started storming…and since we’re suckers, we let them sleep on the floor in our room 🙂 . They love doing this, and truth be told, I enjoy it too because I know I’m going to blink and this stage is over.
One more thing, last year, at the end of my Jammy Cocoa Christmas post, I talked about how I faked my happiness the entire night because…well, my heart wasn’t in it. Earlier that day, we had received some devastating news about Manda and mentally/emotionally, I just wasn’t there…so I faked it for my family. I just wanted to mention this again this year because I know many of you might be faking it this Christmas, and I want you to know that I love you and am praying for you. Right now, I’m praying for all of you “fakers” out there. My heart aches for you because even though this is a joyous time of year for many, it’s a hard time for some. I love you guys. xo
