A Christmas Day in the Life

Just call me nosy, but I love reading other bloggers’ day in the life posts. I’ve done two of these in the past and it’s so fun to go back and read what our everyday life looked like at that point, especially since the little guy is always changing! It’s basically just a play by play of a regular day in our lives. Nothing special so if this sounds incredibly boring to you, please feel free to skip. πŸ˜‰

Day in the Life: March 2017

Day in the Life: April 2016

So both times I’ve done this before, it’s been on Friday’s. This time I thought it would be fun to make it a Sunday since ministry is obviously a huge part of our lives so why wouldn’t I document a really important day for that! I did somehow forget how busy those days can get so there were definitely times I forgot to take any pictures. Whoops. But here we go.. a day in the life of us from this past Sunday!

I am most definitely the first one awake in my family. I do this intentionally because mama needs some quiet time. First things first is shower. Then directly to…

Ahhh coffee. In a Christmas mug. My heart is full.

My Advent study started this day and I’m SO excited. (Especially sitting next to the Christmas tree.) I love doing a study during Advent season because it’s such a great way to prepare and focus my heart during this busy, chaotic time. Because I never want to lose sight of the reason for Christmas.

Then this guy is awake! Looking adorable and so big in his Christmas jammies. First stop is the potty for him and then to the couch. He loved being able to sit by the twinkle lights of the tree too. I’m raising him well. πŸ˜‰

Literally the only time I take selfies of just myself is for one of these day in the life posts. For real. Check my social media if you don’t believe me. Ha! We all got dressed and ready for church! On Sunday mornings, I lay out Caleb’s clothes, Nick gets him dressed, then I do his hair. It’s a beautiful partnership.

Then we are on our way to church! (We are at a red light.. don’t freak out.) We have to get there SUPER early for all of us to be able to ride together but it’s totally worth it.

This guy wanted his own silly picture. Gotta love 3 year olds.

Nick had to head straight to a meeting when we got to church so Caleb and I explored the church to check out all the Christmas decorations. Our church looks absolutely amazing for the Christmas season and it for sure gives us all the feels.

First stop, the worship center. When the lights are down and the shades are closed, it looks absolutely magical.

We stopped by the photo booth because holy cuteness. And now a tree just like this lives in my house because I have the best boss in all the land.

And this is where the pictures stopped for the time being. A stop by our coffee shop, chatting with all the people, and then dropping off Caleb at his class. He stays for both services because I man the computer check-in station for first service and then we attend the second service. He gets to hear his bible story twice but yet when I ask what they learned about, his response is ‘Jesus and God.’ Ahh, the Sunday school answers start early.

We did have a photo shoot in the middle of the services for the children’s ministry brochure. And guess who got to be a super hero!

Clearly he wasn’t into it at all.

After church, we head to Walmart!

Grocery pick up for the win.

Caleb completely passed out on the way home. While eating Cheetos that he found in his backpack from Halloween. Because multitasking.

Once we got home, I got busy with all the things. Unloading groceries and putting them away, unloading the dishwasher, just all of those really fancy kinds of things. During all of this, Caleb ate lunch and went down for his nap.

Also, I baked the brownies for my high school girls event that evening.

Then it was time for my lunch. After all of that kitchen business, I wanted something simple so a breakfast sandwich it was. (Also, RIP Yeti cup. I’m pretty sure I left it on the roof of my car the very next day and now it’s gone forever.)

I enjoyed my lunch on the couch by the Christmas tree and football because it was Sunday after all. Caleb has been trained to know that we watch football on Sundays so not to ask for any of his shows. Brainwashing at its finest.

As much as I love my husband and his love for football, I chose to watch my show on the iPad instead. But we were still in the same room so it counts, right? And yes my taste in shows might equate that of a high schooler. Don’t judge.

When this little guy woke up, he and his daddy played Jets. Because he is obsessed with Super Wings and loves playing out the episodes. And it’s pretty cute to watch these two to play with them together.

Then it was time for me to head back to church for a high school girls event. These boys were working hard in the yard when I left. (Or one of them may have just been playing.)

I set up the table in the youth building as cute as I could for a fun dinner with the girls. It’s an event we do once a month called Tacos & Testimonies where we eat tacos (obviously) and then a woman from the church comes to share their faith story with the girls. It’s always such a sweet night together. I was there for quite a few hours and headed home around 9.

Nick and I chatted a while until I headed to bed to watch more Riverdale. And now I’m proud to say that I’m officially all caught up. Then it was off to bed! No picture happened but it was around 11:30 which is actually VERY late for me. But that’s what happens when you really need to know what’s going to happen with Archie & the gang, especially with the Black Hood on the loose. (Not a Riverdale fan? Your loss.)

But all in all, a pretty basic Sunday for our family! πŸ™‚

Linking up with Sarah and Victoria for their fun Christmas link-up!
