Makelle Ahlin

We first stumbled upon Makelle Ahlin’s Instagram account long ago (@makelleahlin.and.thelostboys), and we quickly grew fond her three mischievous (and simply adorable) little boys, Grizz, Boone and Cooper. This adventurous family resides in Utah and can often be found exploring fields with mountainous backdrops (to say that we’re envious is a bit of an understatement!). Read on to learn Makelle’s clever trick for avoiding holiday chaos, what her no. 1 goal is for the New Year, and more!

Favorite holiday tradition?

Baking Cookies on the first snow of the year has to be one of my favorite traditions! And cutting down our Christmas Tree! 

Where are you celebrating the holidays this year?

We are celebrating in our home with family by our side.

#MomHack for staying sane during the holiday chaos 

Wrap Presents as soon as you bring them home. It helps so you don’t have so many to wrap Christmas Eve. 

Best gift/favorite gift you've ever gotten

New Year's resolution - if you believe in creating them! 

We are building a home so my main goal is to declutter and only keep things that bring me joy and serve a purpose.
