Happy Holidays!

I was pretty depressed yesterday thinking that we weren’t going to see any family this year for Christmas Eve or Christmas. By the time dinner rolled around (egg rolls which may be a permanent tradition…yum!), I was getting into the holiday spirit. We built a fire and sang Christmas carols with the lights out. The kids got on their Christmas jammies just in time for cocoa and some of Santa’s cookies. We also had a family from church stop by to carol us! The kids LOVED that. Christmas morning didn’t come too early (which was my biggest fear) and was enjoyed by all. Mason declared that he “needs more presents!” while Corinne asked if there was anything else to “rip.” Ethan has enjoyed the distraction that the presents have brought. He isn’t getting picked on much today. Here’s a summary by photographs:

The turkey is going into the oven soon. Can’t wait to smell it cooking! All the best to you and yours!
