It's the BEACH time of year....

Today is Christmas - part I anyway. My mom comes in tonight from Colorado (yay!!), so today it's just our little family celebrating. Each year, we head to the beach...doesn't everyone go to the beach on Christmas??? lol. Now, if I wasn't 9 months pregnant, I totally would have been out in the water (withOUT a wetsuit) getting my surf on, but oh well. Playing on the beach will just have to do. :)



And we make "snow"men! lol...


here's my version....


and my husband's version...




From our family to yours - Merry Christmas! Hope your day brings you joy, however you spend it.


p.s...I'm only 9 away from my 200 follower giveaway! Check out what I'm going to do once I get to 200 {HERE}

oh Jen, I am SO jealous! What a gorgeous way to spend the holiday!! Although, it is very pretty today in New England. We have a tiny dusting of snow outside and woke up to big beautiful snowflakes falling--the kind that don't really accumulate (the best kind!!!). Merry Christmas!! :)

Hi Jen!

Oh... I forgot about the nine months part... I hope you're enjoying the "almost-ness" of the new baby!

Love the sand/snow people. I think the middle one looks like a mer-snow-sand-maid! The beach looks so serene... and clearly you were not fighting for some space. It was in the seventies most of the day in California--but since I never got out of pajamas, it didn't matter much...

WOW! Two hundred followers! I checked to be sure I was "signed up." Yep! (And Darn! because I really wanted to give you +1 more!)

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy-Soon-To-Be-Birthday of your new little one...

Oh wow! I'm so jealous. I'd LOVE to be on a nice hot beach. Our beach was wet and freezing cold today! Had to drink an extra baileys and coffee just to stay warm:)

Oh my goodness...I a jealous. I mean, we are having unseasonably warm temps around here...and NO snow...Christmas doesn't feel like Christmas much to this Michigan girl without snow. BUT...if we're not going to have snow, I'd be WILLING to tolerate a day on the beach instead. HA!

You have a beautiful family! ENJOY!

We love the beach! I'm in North Florida now and when we were stationed in Dallas the children and I were stuck in the airport for two days in APRIL due to a crazy snowstorm. Our 2 hour flight because a 2 day nightmare, no restaurants were open because the food employees couldn't get there, the airport ran out of cots, no food, no caffine, no joy...augh!!! I will be happy to live in Sunny Florida for the rest of my days!
One Florida tradition that's different from our friends up north...Our family makes melted snowman on the night of our first "cold snap" down here. We get the frozen Pina Colada mix at Publix and add vanilla ice cream instead of rum! A melted snowman!
