Yes, it's 3 days after Christmas, & yes, I am just now posting some pictures.
Tomorrow, I'm sending Christmas cards.
So, I'm running a bit behind. At least I'm still running, right?
Anyway, I love Christmas time & have become especially fond of our family time on Christmas Eve. It's just become a special, simple time with our kiddos, & this year was extra special b/c we have two more blessings than we did last year! :o)
We start the evening off by celebrating our Savior at a worship service.
I would say they clean up pretty good! When we get home, it is tradition that all of the kids get new books & jammies.
Once everybody has finished opening their gifts, they promptly get comfy in their new jammies. I adore this picture of Kaelee & Kearsten tag-teaming the task of getting Kendi changed.
Ok, this next picture is adorable & freaky all at the same time. No, Kendi cannot stand alone yet. You can hardly tell someone is holding her up...lol!
Kade got Mom a special present at the Santa shop at his school. The kids usually pick up a few things for Mom & Dad, so we open those on Christmas Eve, too. This year, K'Tyo gave us a gift of some special ornaments he made in preschool. He was so proud b/c we have a special tree that holds only handmade ornaments by the kids. I'm pretty sure I was too busy blubbering over those ornaments to get a picture.
Kearsten got me a sweet Willow Tree angel that reminded her of Kendi. She has curly hair, a headband, & is called the "Angel of Love".
When we finished gifts, it was time to enjoy some finger foods....
...and then some snuggling in with the ones we love.
So very thankful for the gift of His son so that we may enjoy moments such as these.
I hope that your Christmas was full of beautiful moments that will become treasured memories.
