I am way too late in posting this (geez, where’d the year go?) but nonetheless I wanted to officially document on the blog what a great Christmas we had.
I love everything about Christmas. It’s more than just presents, it’s the birth of Jesus. It’s also great family time.
We do Christmas eve with family — either at my dad’s house, or this year at my brother’s house. Then we go the the family friendly Christmas eve service, then home where the kids open just one present that just happens to be Christmas PJs. That way we get to wake up in our own bed and celebrate Christmas morning at home.
The rest of the family joins us by mid-day, and we do presents again and have fun hanging out.
Then, at the end of the day, we have our big Christmas dinner, which I enjoy putting together.
We had a wonderful time celebrating with grandparents and cousins and just an all around lovely time.
Here is the big photo gallery — mostly for family’s benefit. Credit goes to my brother for the nicer looking photos.
