Christmas Day

Christmas is my favorite holiday. I took hundreds of pictures. Yes. Hundreds…with an s. But, I won’t subject you to all of them (unless we’re friends on Facebook, then you’ve already seen them all!). Here is just a little glimpse of our day…

We started out the morning opening stockings…

Then, after breakfast, we were off to church…

I love that Christmas fell on a Sunday this year! I wish it always did. We had a sweet time, worshipping, and celebrating the birth of our Savior together with our church family!

I know that Christmas isn’t about the presents. But, I just love picking out special gifts for my family, and watching the excitement on my children’s faces as they open their presents! This year, I especially loved seeing them choose gifts for each other, and truly experiencing the joy of giving.

2016_12_253Favorites this year included books (of course!),
Transformers, American Girl accessories, a Minnie Mouse outfit, and a bike!

The kids had some time to enjoy their presents…

Then, we continued the celebration into the evening with Grammy and Grampy!

Christmas Eve

I love letting the kids each open a gift on Christmas Eve…

img_5993wmI love these kids!

img_5996wmEveryone with their Christmas Eve gift. By now, Hannah and Titus have figured out that they’re getting pajamas. But, that’s just part of the fun, in my opinion. This year, Hannah insisted that Daddy needed new Christmas jammies too!

img_6023wmRebekah & Rachel got matching Minnie and Daisy pajamas (they love all things Minnie Mouse!); Hannah got horses (of course!); and Titus got a glow-in-the-dark Triceratops (only because I couldn’t find a T-Rex).
