I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday break! In today’s post, I thought I’d share some of my favorite photos from the holidays. With all the decor and DIY-related posts I’ve done recently, I feel it’s time I shared some photos that aren’t project-related. 🙂 I hope you enjoy them.

1. Holiday Card 2015 Photos

Here are the 4 photos that made it to our 2015 holiday card. We have a tradition of taking photos of the kids in our home. You can read about our photo shoot tradition here.

Seeing how sweet the kids looked and the joy in their faces made it a little easier that our sweet Lola was notably missing. Regular readers may recall that our boxer passed away last September. You can catch my tribute post here.

2. Christmas Eve Outfits. 

It was so unseasonably WARM this past Christmas. So glad I had the girls wear dresses with short sleeves.

3. Kisses for Roxie

Being the only dog in the house has its perks. Roxie is certainly enjoying all the extra love and attention.

4. Presents All Wrapped

I’m a sucker for pretty wrapping paper. They just look so Beau-tee-ful under the tree. 🙂

Now…. on to the FOOD :

5. Chicken and Seafood Paella

I have to tell you…I’m a little obsessed with the paella that my husband makes. It’s  d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s!

He made this paella dish for Christmas eve and it tastes as good as it looks.

6. “Potatas Bravas” Dish

This is a dish native to Spain and is often served as tapas in bars. The roasted tomato aioli sauce is a must for this dish.

7. Mushrooms and Salad

Nothing like mushrooms and a refreshing salad to balance out all the carbs from the paella dish.

8. My Girls and Me

It’s always a good idea to take a group photo before guests arrive. I’m so glad I asked Chris, my husband, to take a quick photo of the girls and me. Next time, I should have timer set so my husband can be included as well. 😀
