It’s baby Crew Gaines‘ first Christmas and his sweet mama, Joanna Gaines, is sure making it’s special! The Fixer Upper alum shared adorable pictures of her little bundle of joy as he charmingly posed with Santa Claus. “All my dreams have come true,” the mom-of-five wrote in the caption.
Joanna, 40, and her hubby, Chip Gaines, welcomed baby Crew on Sunday, June 24. Since this marks his first time meeting St. Nick, Joanna is making it quite memorable. Take a look at Joanna’s post below and make sure to scroll right to see all the cute pics!
Many fans reacted with the typical “so cute!” or “Merry Christmas,” while more keen fans were quick to pick out that Crew was happy in Santa’s presence. Though a baby’s first reaction isn’t guaranteed to go, well, great… the adorable six-month-old looked like he had a fun time as he was all smiles.
“Her baby WOULD smile at Santa. My kids both acted like I was trying to set them on fire as I was putting them on Santa’s lap,” one fan hysterically wrote. “This year he’s laughing, next year he’ll be crying. I just love it!” wrote another.
Perhaps Jo has been preparing for this since the former HGTV star has been in the Christmas spirit before Halloween. “My sister couldn’t wait for December and I’m not complaining!” she captioned a video she shared of her showing off her younger sister Mary’s living room with a cozy fire as “The Christmas Song” by Nat King Cole played in the background.
Jo even was reminiscing on her previous Christmases as she shared her “favorite” ornaments on Dec. 12 while decorating the family’s 13-foot-tree. The handmade works-of-art featured the baby photos of her four kiddos, Drake, 13, Ella, 12, Duke, 10, and Emmie Kay, 8. So cute!
Joanna revealed that their family gets in the Christmas spirit every year by kicking off their holiday traditions with a visit to the Christmas tree farm. After getting “the most ridiculously large and fragrant [one],” it’s time to decorate the tree, the brunette beauty said in her Magnolia Journal magazine.
“The Popsicle-stick picture frames have cracked over the years, and the photos within them have faded,” Jo described of the homemade ornaments. “It only makes me love them all the more.”
We can’t wait to see all the adorable pics that Jo and Chip, 44, will share of their family’s Christmas this year, especially as this marks the first holiday as a family-of-seven. We hope the Gaineses have a magical Christmas!
