Elf in Training

Christmas Eve and Christmas Day were a lot of fun in the Jewell household. We celebrated with my mom, dad and brother on both days, and shared in the once in a lifetime experience that was Brayden's first Christmas. I went a little crazy and cycled him through five outfits on both days but that's OK because we have a limited window of time to dress him up like this! Plus, we had a couple last minute additions (thanks Rizutto family!) to his holiday wardrobe that couldn't be missed.

Christmas Eve was dinner and family time together. The video below captures a special moment from that night. Christmas morning was a yummy brunch, Jewell family Christmas drinks (Brian's best batch ever!) and presents. Brayden is having so much fun with all his toys every day! Thank you to everyone who sent him gifts; Brayden is so blessed to have so many who love him and think of him and his future every day. We are so grateful to have you in our lives.

About seven years ago, my Babcie (my mom’s mom), knit me a sweater for my first born child. On Christmas Eve, Brayden wore that sweater for the first time. It was a special time for us while we remembered her and my recently passed Dziadzia (my mom’s dad). They are always in our hearts.
