Our Favorite: Christmas Adam Tradition

What started with our impatience after we first got married, turned into our favorite couple’s Christmas Adam tradition!❤️ My husband and I couldn’t recommend it any more to parents everywhere! Once you do this once, you’ll never go another year without it.

Christmas morning is allllll about the kids, and rightfully so! These magical years with our kids will be gone in a blink, so soak it all up while we can! All that ends up happening is parents rush through each other’s gifts, not appreciating the love that went into choosing or personalizing something special for one another.

Can you even remember what Christmas was like before you had kids?! After 16 years of marriage, I can assure you, I do not anymore, ha!

December is nothing short of madness! We manage our regular lives of school, homework, extra-curriculars, work, chores, etc. and on top of it spend countless hours preparing for big day and celebrating the spirit of the season with or kids, family and friends! Trust me, you and your husband deserve to take an evening to yourselves to relax and enjoy each other’s company. Create a little magic that isn’t kid-related.

I Love You Huz!
