Fond Memories of Christmas Past on a #FiveSibes Flashback Friday!


Christmastime has always been a favorite, special, and fun time of year for my family; from my childhood home to the present. The FiveSibes have always added so much happiness and laughter to our lives, and they have enjoyed Christmas just as much as we have! I am so thankful for all the memories. In this video from Christmas 2013, my boys Gibson and Wolf kept me company while wrapping presents under the tree. And, as you can see, Wolf the forever sleepyhead was busy snoozing while big brother Gibson was my silly Elf, "helping" me wrap!  They always pick up on the excitement as THE day draws near...enjoying the decorating, getting and sending cards, and eating doggie treats while we baked. And to this day, laying under the tree and gazing at the twinkling lights is still a favorite past time of theirs...and one I love to watch as it reminds of all the love, peace, warmth, and joy this season is really about.



"We'll cherish those moments 
for the rest of our lives."

  3. Love seeing Gibson chomping on the wrapping paper. We have some footage of Pip with our daughter on her first Christmas. They are opening gifts together and it is so sweet. So cherish these moments and glad they are captured on video
