a merry little christmas recap

Monday, December 28, 2009

i love christmas. celebrating the birth of Jesus, opening a door for the advent calendar with the kids each night, visiting with relatives i only see once a year, eating delicious food and on and on!

here is a little picture recap of our celebrations....

each child had four gifts under the tree. want, need, wear, read.

all the children raced downstairs christmas morning to open stockings! we don't do santa claus in our home. the kiddos know we fill the stockings and trust me, it doesn't make it any less exciting :) christmas morning creates so many memories for our family. ah yes, you see correctly, little dubs did not have a stocking. he had plenty of fun frolicking around in all the paper!

this is dancy on christmas night at bedtime. she received a music maker harp and art supplies (from hobby lobby) and felt it necessary to sleep with all of it :)
boone joined in the annual family bingo game at my parents house. last year it was a penny for every bingo you got...this year it was quarters! :)

our family picture. i wore the green scarf (old navy) to every party. :)

merry christmas from our family to yours! and cheers to a happy new year!
