Christmas '11

Our Christmas this year was wonderful.  
The time that we spent together as a family was so special and sweet and fun.  I'll never forget it.  
Christmas was a little different for us this year ... Logan was scheduled to work on Christmas Eve and Christmas day so with permission from Santa of course, we celebrated on the 23rd.  
Although number on the calendar read wrong, it was still Christmas in our home.  
It was wonderful.

Our day looked a little like this:

the kids coming down Christmas morning

We woke the kids up at 7:00 
Grandmas and Grandpas were anxiously waiting downstairs
Sophie immediately put on her reindeer antlers that she had been saving in her bed for weeks and grabbed Jingle {we can't leave him out!} 
 The kids bolted down the stairs and eagerly assessed all that Santa had brought them.
We opened presents 
ate a yummy breakfast
and spent the rest of the day playing with toys and being together!
Collin with Bey Blades
Ruby with Strawberry Shortcake
Sophie with dolls and roller skates
Lyla with anything that she could fit into her mouth!

That night we made a turkey and feasted together ...
thinking about all that we are blessed with.
What a magical time of year that we get to be together and celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
