Hello all! Hope you had a fabulous weekend! I seriously cannot believe that Christmas is on Friday. It feels nothing like Christmas here. I’m used to hot chocolate, ice skating, the Rockefeller tree and Christmas tunes. This year, however, we headed to the beach the week before Christmas. A friend of ours was baptizing her twins so we made the three hour journey with our noisy sidekick to celebrate.
It turned out to be an absolutely gorgeous day, which was a relief since it was raining when we woke up.
We had an amazing view from our hotel room but to be honest, we hardly even enjoyed it because as soon as we arrived, we headed down to the beach.
Coops absolutely loved it! The water level was fairly low so I was able to sit with him in some small waves and push him into them a bit so they would swoosh over his little body. He was laughing hysterically. And then he was holding onto me for dear life. So cute. I took a mental photo of that one!
After a few hours at the beach, we headed to a friend’s house for the baptism of her children. They have a new house on the beach and the view was gorgeous.
I was so impressed with the decorations for the baptism. Brazilians love to go all out for parties and this one was no exception! Everything looked completely gorgeous and they had some delicious food including a caipirinha bar with all these different flavors of the favorite Brazilian drink.
And, of course, Coops had a great time completely taking over the party. He absolutely refused to stay in either of our arms and decided to crawl around the entire house. I think every single person commented to me about how fast he could crawl. I totally thought this was normal, but apparently I just have a really active baby! Haha!
Readers, tell me about the last party you went to that made you go “whoa!” Anyone else have a very active child or puppy or other animal?
That house!!! And the food and decorations!!! It looks like a wedding. Crazy and awesome that you have friends like that.
Cooper is just too adorable and not surprising he is so FAST and active like his mama. Loved all the pictures!
Awww!! What a sweet celebration!! This is seriously SO beautiful!! Christmas must be much different! So much warmer. Seriously so beautiful. Also, Cooper is SO cute! He’s growing up so fast! Such a sweetheart!
It looks gorgeous! And I love caipirinhas! Cooper loves to be on-the-go huh? He seems like such a happy, adventurous baby. Oh yes, I have quite an active pup whose been trying to give me a ball the whole time I was reading this post. I think she has prepped me to have a crazy toddler somewhere down the line too 😉
I am saying Whoa over the party you just attended!
We have had a few parties in the past that have been outstanding: a wedding shower or two, a wedding reception or two, after a wedding party, a baby shower–I think it is the guest list that sticks with me!
