Real Housewives of Orange County newbie, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, manages to wrangle a family of nine and still look like a ten all year long, but how does she keep it together with the additional hassle around the holidays? The freshman RHOC star dished to Page Six how her family of nine celebrates Christmas and Hannukah.
Braunwyn has figured out a way to avoid confusion for her kids while opening gifts- color coding. “Bella is blue. Rowan is red. Jacob is green. Caden is gold. Curren is silver. Koa is purple and Hazel is pink. And it keeps it very organized.”
The family plans a less lavish celebration for Christmas than in years past, as they prepare to relocate. “We’re moving January 4th into a new house,” she explained. “It’s exciting but it’s also the worst time to move, I feel like. So this year I’m trying to keep it very small. Normally our Christmases are over the top and huge. I love magic, so I love Santa and I love everything that goes along with it.”
Braunwyn took to Instagram to remind her followers to ‘breathe’ and ‘know it’s enough.’

Just Breathe. I’ve been doing this holiday mom thing for 20 years, in the beginning I would drive myself crazy looking for gifts I couldn’t afford and weren’t really needed, as my kids grew up I started to realize something, they didn’t remember what gifts they got (or didn’t get,) they remembered the time and the traditions. I want you all to take a minute for yourself today (even if it’s just hiding in your room for a bit,) and remind yourself what really matters….friends, family, and time together. Holidays aren’t perfect, they aren’t what you see on Instagram, but they’re memories you’ll have forever. Bake some cookies, cuddle as you watch your favorite movie, drink some hot chocolate, and know it’s enough!! Happy Holidays!! #honestmotherhood #motherhoodsimplified #mommylife #newportmom #happyholidays #braunwynwindhamburke
