Christmas Eve and Day


I still can't believe that Christmas has come and gone. Time is flying by too fast these days! We had such a great relaxing couple days. Beau did have to work on Christmas Eve and be "On-Call" Christmas day, but luckily he didn't called out on Christmas! The kids and I just had a great time relaxing, talking about why we celebrate Christmas, and watching old movies. We had a fancy dinner later at night when Beau got home. It was so nice to just relax and enjoy each other.

Then we watched "Joy to the World" with the kiddos. Talked some more about the "True" meaning of Christmas, and read our favorite Christmas books. (The Tale of the Three Trees...is my favorite. If you don't own it I highly recommend it! It is so touching)


The kids also got to open their Christmas Eve package from Grandma before going to bed. When the kids were in bed I made crepes so we could have them with fresh pie filling in the morning! Yummy!!!

Santa definitely found his way to our house. Kennedy woke everyone up at 7:00 am shouting "It's Christmas" The other two were instantly up and running down the stairs. I think they really enjoyed opening presents by the fire! It was such a perfect morning!

Here is Kenny shoveling gum balls in her face!!

We hope you all had a PERFECT CHRISTMAS!! With lots of relaxation, family, and food! And also had a good time together as family reflecting on the meaning of this blessed Holiday!!

I love the quilts from Grandma! We should all doa post on the same day to tell her thanks--my kids love theirs!

I didn't make crepes this year because I spent Christmas Eve making nine doxen klejner cookies and I was too exhausted. WRETCH! Next year I'm skipping keljner (or making it at the beginning of December) and making crepes instead.

I love the first picture you put on this post--it's one of my favorites.
