There’s nothing quote like the wonder of a child at Christmas time. Our sweet 6 year old Addie is soaking up all the excitement and magic of the season and it is pure joy to watch her. She wrote a darling letter to Santa this week. Her number one wish is for a pair of ‘kowgrl boots’ and I can’t wait to see her surprise when she opens them Christmas morning! Experiencing the simplest of joys with my kids during this Christmas season is so special and I’m grateful for the way they encourage me to slow down and enjoy the magic right along with them.


“If we could all see the world through the eyes of a child, we would see the magic in everything.”

Every year I take a photo of the kids wearing their Santa hats – it’s a little Christmas photo tradition that’s really special to me. Taking the annual Santa hat photo in a location that showcases where we’re living at the time is always fun & this year I thought it only fitting that we take it during a beautiful sunset, among the cactus! I’m so thankful for this photo that will be a special reminder of our first Christmas in Arizona.

Our little Elf Harvey arrived today and the kids are so excited to welcome him back for a second year of holiday fun! If you do Elf on the shelf and are looking for some no-fuss Elf antics, take a look at this post from earlier in the week. We celebrated our Elf’s arrival with our traditional December 1st Christmas breakfast and it was YUM-ee!

Yesterday we dug out the Christmas decorations and did some sorting and purging. For me, keeping things simple this Christmas, starts with keeping our home clutter free. We don’t have a lot of extra space in the house we’re renting so we’ve picked out some of our favourite decorations and will leave the rest packed away. We’ve also been going through all the kids clothes and toys to assess what they need this year. This will help us make some very intentional gift purchases and getting rid of the old will make room for the new.

We’re off for the weekend enjoying some gorgeous views in Northern Arizona. We hiked Bell Rock yesterday and it was amazing! I’m feeling so grateful for a much needed break in Randal’s school schedule, a last minute family trip and the beauty of nature that is all around us!

We celebrated another birthday this week – 6 birthdays in 6 months in this family always makes for fun times! Our Carson boy turned nine and he was lucky enough to have his Grandparents visiting from Canada for the occasion! We had a little friend party on Friday and we went with a monster theme, which was so much fun!

Carson has been blessed to make some good friends in the short time that we’ve been living here in AZ and the fact that all of them could bike to his party because they live so close, just confirmed to me that we’re exactly where we’re supposed to be. I worried a lot about the kids adjusting to a new school and making friends, but everything has worked out so well and we’re really loving life here.

We carved pumpkins yesterday and the kids are so excited to roast the seeds later today following this yummy recipe. We can’t wait to enjoy them, along with a cup of hot chocolate – even though it still feels like Summer here to us. ;)

I did a before and after shot like this with the kids and their pumpkins last year and I loved it so much, I decided to make it a new tradition! So many special memories are tied to the family traditions we’ve made surrounding each holiday.

As we carved pumpkins together, it was so fun to hear the kids reminiscing about events from Halloweens past. Remembering what they dressed up as, how the pumpkin seeds tasted last time we roasted them and comparing the best houses they’d ever trick or treated at.

Carving pumpkins is one thing my kids look forward to most at Halloween, besides the trick or treating of course! If you celebrate the holiday, what memorable Halloween traditions do you have in your family? I’d love to hear in the comments! :)

We spent some time exploring a local corn maze one night this week and the kids thought it was the best thing ever! They’d never been through one before, so it was an exciting first for them. 
It was such a gorgeous night. We’re not used to this warm Fall weather and we’ve been enjoying it so much! I think one of the things we get asked the most, when people find out we’ve just moved from Canada to Arizona, is how we’re liking the heat. I’m not going to lie, the Summer was pretty intense, but after living on the island for a year and a half we’ve come to really crave the sunshine. 
It’s amazing how quickly we’ve become accustomed to the climate here. In fact, during Fall break the temperatures dipped down to about 26 degrees C (78 F) and I had four little frozen kiddos shivering at the pool! These Canadians have gone soft I’m afraid! ;)   
Here’s to celebrating Fall, family time and of course, photos. :)
