Bindi Irwin has plenty of reasons to smile as she heads toward 2016.

Still celebrating her Dancing with the Stars win, the 17-year-old conservationist also has a sweet boyfriend by her side.

Irwin shared a goofy video on Instagram Sunday giving a glimpse into how she’s spending the holidays with her pro wakeboarder boyfriend, Chandler Powell.

In the short clip, Irwin surprises Powell, 19, by taking a video instead of a standard snap.

The duo tells followers they’re about to take a hike. Suffice it to say, there are lots of giggles and affectionate glances along the way – Irwin even wrote as the caption for the video: “Pretty much sums up our relationship…. Thank you @chandlerpowell for always making me smile.”

The teens met in November 2013 and have kept up a long-distance relationship while Powell goes to college in Florida and Irwin lives in Queensland to work at the Australia Zoo.

“”We talk every day and are together every two to three months,” Irwin previously told PEOPLE. “Thankfully I’ve found someone who is an outdoors kind of person. We’ll go have adventures or picnic in the park.”

Seems like Christmas weekend has been no exception for the sunny sweethearts.
