Henington Christmas 2017 // Chicago Wedding Photographer
This Christmas we did something a little different. Normally on Christmas day we go to Larissa’s grandmother’s house for Christmas, but this year the whole family decided to travel to Ris’ uncle and aunt’s place in Melbourne, FL. Our east coast journey across the state was great and the boys slept half the way. Once we got there, the Christmas festivities began with an incredible lunch of homemade focaccia bread sandwiches and other yummy treats. For Christmas eve dinner we had Beef Wellington (Jay’s first time having it) and the fanciest mashed potatoes we’ve ever seen. It was as good as it sounds! The dinner was off the charts amazing and the boys did great having a nibble and then watching some iPad while the adults enjoyed ourselves. Christmas morning we had the breakfast of all breakfasts featuring quiches’, pancakes, eggnog, and various cakes for miles. By the time we opened presents, the boys were about to explode. Their patience was rewarded as they both got doctor’s outfits, magnetic fishing rods, awesome books, a bit of money for their college funds, and lots and lots of snuggles from their uncles, aunts and grandparents. We had such an wonderful time! We’re just sad Christmas is over now, but I think we’ll leave our tree up until February. Check out some of our favorites shots from our family Christmas.
