While Dylan's home base is New York City, her fans are familiar with glimpses of her and her family's coastal vacation home, which made for the prettiest backdrop for the family's 2023 Christmas photos.

The doting mom-of-three took to Instagram as the weekend came to a close and shared a heartwarming video of her boys, where all three look adorable in matching red striped pajamas sitting on a festively decorated table in their terrace.

Plus, while many will agree that untangling Christmas tree lights might be one of the most taxing tasks to decorating, Dylan used it to her advantage to get all three of her boys in a good enough mood for perfectly cheery holiday portraits.

Dylan then wrote in her caption: "How to keep the kids happy so we can take a Christmas card picture? Tangled lights!" before cheekily joking: "When do they go from fun to absolutely maddening? (The lights, not the kids… well, I guess the kids too)."
