Christmas 2016

Our 8th Christmas together! This year our Christmas was much more chill than usual and I loved it. We had our annual Christmas Party with much less people than normal and it was the perfect amount of chaos. Our Christmas Eve was spent at church and at home making gingerbread houses. And our Christmas day was definitely slow. We got to spend time with both of our families and I loved it. I hope you all had a relaxing holiday spent with those you love most!

London, England

The next stop on our trip was London, England. This is the 3rd time I've been to this city and I just have to say that it keeps getting better. I would live here in a heartbeat. While there, we had the chance to see both Phantom of the Opera and Woman in Black. They were so much fun and I think I've triggered the theatre bug in Ryan. He has not stopped singing Phantom songs since we got back. Enjoy some pictures of our time there!

We obviously had to take selfies with the typical tourist spots.

Found a fuzzy chair while shopping at Harrod's.

His first taste of English fish & chips.

If you didn't know, huge Harry Potter fans in this household.

His jumping attempt.

St. Dunstan's in the East

The most beautiful park happens to be inside of an old church.

Having Afternoon Tea at Sketch Restaurant.

Slightly obsessed with the gorgeous pink velvet seating

All of the artwork on the walls and the dishes was made by the same artist.

I've linked the vlogs from our London days here. Enjoy!
