Christmas 2015

Zach and I had a wonderful Christmas!
We were a little sad to think this was our last Christmas in Hawaii and could possibly be our last Christmas just the two of us.
We wanted to keep it simple; eat good food, enjoy opening presents together, and go to the beach.
On Christmas Eve we made ham, mashed potatoes, and stuffing and made enough so we would not have to cook again on Christmas {we love leftovers}.
We've tried to make watching Elf our Christmas Eve tradition {so far it's only happened our first two years here} we forgot the movie last year when we went to Utah and this year I only made it through the credits before I started to fall asleep.
On Christmas morning we woke up excited that Santa had come, of course! Popped a french toast bake in the oven, opened presents, and called our families to wish them a Merry Christmas.
Zach had the best idea to take our little tree with us to the beach so we took the ornaments off and packed our beach bag.
It was a beautiful Christmas beach day. We planted our tree in the sand and took some photos.
Other people walked over and ask us if they could use our tree to take a photo with.
'Tis the season!
