Christmas in Baku 2016

We had a wonderful Christmas weekend! We've been fortunate to have my mom here for most of December and her husband Jeff joined us a few days before Christmas. It was wonderful spending the weekend with them and the girls have been having so much fun with them.

We got our tree setup and all the presents (gratefully wrapped by Papa Jeff!) arranged the night before Christmas (to avoid cat and toddler destruction).  Jason and I stuck to the rule of four with the gifts and I'm glad. It made shopping easier and manageable. :-) There are some other traditions we would like to start in future years, but I've found it to be a bit challenging being overseas. 

We made our big meal on Christmas Eve, which included a honey baked ham brought from America and homemade blueberry and pumpkin pie. I was pretty dang proud of being able to make that period, but I also found a way to make it egg-free. #winning  

And... it's basically impossible to get a good picture at this stage with our littles. So we will settle for the in-focus, but Madi sticking her tongue out option. #atleastwearealllooking ;-)

Sunday morning we made breakfast and enjoyed watching the girls open their gifts and start playing with them. After the girls' naps we got dressed up and headed to a Christmas brunch at the Hyatt. It was nice to have a meal made for us and the girls were adorable in their dresses from Grandma and Papa Jeff. 

 We hope you had a very Merry Christmas from the Stingerie fam!
