This year my side of the family planned a trip to the Florida Keys for the week of Christmas. Coming from a place that usually has a white Christmas, we weren't quite sure what to make of it. Luckily it turns out that Christmas is just as magical in a tropical place! It was a bit crazy and hectic traveling across the country with 2 1/2 month-old twins, but I think I would have done just about anything for a change of scenery. After 3 weeks of bed rest and a few months of staying cooped up inside, I needed to get out. The weather was perfect and the company was even better. All in all, I quite enjoyed our tropical Christmas!
Max and Clara just looooooved relaxing on the dock :)
Christmas morning. I love this picture because it summarizes our crazy life and how crazy and disheveled we feel these days. And by disheveled I mostly mean exhausted.
Our Santa babies (Clara got her first doll for Christmas!)
We went for a quick outing on Christmas afternoon. It was windy as heck, but it sure was pretty.
Mister smiles! I just love that face.
The house we rented had some kayaks. Russ loved it.
We drove down to Key Largo (the most southern point of the United States) and watched the sunset. It was gorgeous!

A snapshot in what our crazy crew looked like on the plane. Needless to say, whoever had to sit by us was less than thrilled. :)
