This year we woke up and it was just us:-) We had people coming for dinner but we had our Christmas morning to ourselves. We got up, relaxed, had a great breakfast, played, read the Christmas story, and eventually opened presents. It was calm and FUN:-)
The boys were in their BUZZ LIGHTYEAR PJ's courtesy of grandma:-)
Holden posed by the tree, Daniel not so much:-)
Some sort of ninja gymnastics move, Daniel wasn't so happy about it...typical fair at our house.
Umm where did MY BABY go! what an AMAZING smile!
Holden and Tom made breakfast:-)...I heated up homemade cinnamon rolls:-)
we had the fire on ALL DAY! :-)
this year was the first where we had an Advent calendar with chocolate. It was our nemesis. A battle to eat right to get the chocolate, and then there were days we totally forgot about it. I think Holden still had about 8 chocolates this morning. He shared some with Daniel. there were NO complaints.

Trying to figure this present thing out.
A WONDERFUL day. Filled with our family, prayer, presents, and fun. AND in the afternoon family and friends came over for a wonderful meal and more good times:-) We are SO blessed. The boys LOVED ALL the visitors, and great times were had by all.
