Christmas Morning

We had such a wonderful Christmas with my family this year. My parents and brothers all flew here to visit us for over a week. It was SO nice to be together, and to have some help with the kids and keeping up with the house. We went caroling on Christmas Eve, watched the Nativity movie, read from the scriptures, played our favorite game (Loaded Questions) and exchanged gifts. One tradition we have is that the kids get only 3 gifts each, to symbolize the gifts that Christ got from the wise men. But after you add in all the gifts from the grandparents too, the kids got pretty spoiled! But they were so thrilled. Here are a few pictures of what Christmas looked like at our house this year... (Hmm, I guess if I wanted to be totally real, I should have added a picture of a tantrum or two, but I didn't take any pictures of those moments ;))





Benny is obsessed with Mr. Incredible! Nana Jodie gave him this doll, and the matching jammies. If he could, he would not only wear these to bed, but to school too.
Nana and Papa got each of the girls their very first Barbie!
A special moment with Nana
It was a sweet and intimate Christmas celebration with the people I love the most, and I'm so glad we got to spend it together this year. Hope you had a Merry Christmas too!

We played LOADED QUESTIONS this Christmas, too! It was my first time and it was quite fun. Seeing these pictures makes me miss you more. (((HUGS)))
