Holiday Wrap-up

Oh yes I did! We have a tradition of opening one present on Christmas Eve, and that present is always a new pair of jammies. This Christmas I thought it would be too funny if we all had matching p.j.'s! I made everybody open them at the same time, then we all jumped into them. We were colorful to say the least! We drank hot chocolate and read the Christmas story from the bible. Then it was off to bed (for some of us at least).
 Cookies and milk for the big man were devoured, he must have made it!
 The kids got up nice and early, Mrs. Clause had only about 2 hours sleep (note to self-start wrapping sooner!), and the unwrapping began!
The girls were excited about their new robes, slippers and hat.
 After the unwrapping melee, it was so nice to be able to go to church. It was a lovely Christmas service and we were all in black and red.
That evening we had our "fancy" dinner. Prime rib, potatoes, North Pole broccoli, salad and homemade roles, good stuff.
 My younger brother, Andy and his lovely girlfriend, Alicia joined us.



 Another tradition we have are Christmas crackers. It's fun to find them each year and this year they matched my china perfectly! 
The best part about crackers are the goofy crowns that everybody wears.

It sure was a beautiful season. It came much too fast for me and is gone just as quickly too. I'm grateful to have time just to be with family and friends and celebrate the birth of our Savior. Perfect.
Hope your holidays were wonderful too!
