Christmas Pictures

     Merry Early Christmas! We took these pictures a few weeks ago and while we have been enjoying some 80 degree days, this day was freezing cold! My hands and feet were completely numb by the time we finished taking pictures in uptown Charlotte. I’m so glad it’s finally getting a little cooler because it actually is starting to feel like Christmas.
     We decided to do something a little different this year for our family photos. My wonderful mama braved the cold and took these pictures for us. It was perfect because we got to experiment with some ideas and we got to “play” in uptown Charlotte. To top it all off, our Christmas cards are ordered! We were earlier than normal this year so Evan and I had a little high five celebration. (No RUSH shipping! Yippee)
    Christmas is such a beautiful time of year. I enjoy the lights, the comfort of home, and making memories with our loved ones. This year I actually watched Miracle on 34th Street which is something I say I’m going to do every year but never get around to. I must say it was a wonderful movie and it proved to me why it stands the test of time. I might have secretly loved the legal arguments of “why Santa is real.”
    Besides taking our annual Christmas pictures, I have a few favorite traditions. I love making a huge bowl of Chex Mix and sitting down to watch some of our favorite movies like Elf, Home Alone, and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Also, one night every year (usually in our PJ’s or sweatpants), we ride through all the neighborhoods looking at everyone’s Christmas decorations. We have the best time jamming out to Christmas music and driving around. The dogs love it too. I would be doing a huge disservice if I didn’t mention shopping. Christmas shopping is a tradition. I LOVE to go Christmas shopping with my mom. We listen to Christmas music, grab a Starbucks, and shop all day. It’s one of my favorite traditions from childhood. We would spend all day shopping at the mall and gazing at all of the decorations. My favorite of all traditions is that every Christmas eve I pick one gift under the tree and open it. I’ve done that as long as I can remember. When I was little it was probably a sneaky way of me getting a present a little early. However, the traditions survives. It’s a fun teaser for the following morning!
   I’d love to hear about your favorite traditions on my instagram (@themeganwhite) or below! Enjoy this wonderful season and remember the true meaning of Christmas, Jesus Christ!
