Here are some pictures of our Christmas! Top picture is the boys with the Nilo train/play table we bought them for Christmas. 2nd is our giant family stocking and all of our presents around the snow man. We didn't have room for a tree! 3rd is a picture of our Christmas brunch which included Ham and egg casserole, cinnamon biscuits, and an assortment of fruit. Bottom picture is the boys in bed together on Christmas eve night. We had such a nice relaxing day! We attended a Christmas eve service the night before which caused the kids to sleep in until 8:30am since they were out late! We then got up and let the boys see their train table and then slowly took turns unloading our big stocking together. It was so much fun! Next we moved onto our other gifts. We didn't get around to eating brunch until around 11:30! We watched the boys enjoy the new toys for awhile and then everyone took an afternoon nap. When the boys got up we read the Christmas story together. It is Daniel and my tradition to write eachother a letter every Christmas to read aloud to eachother on Christmas day. That is always one of my favorite gifts! I forgot to mention that Daniel bought Grace her first doll for Christmas! I already have it ready for her along with the few other things we have for her arrival! After putting the kids to bed Daniel and I watched a movie together and that pretty much wrapped up all our Christmas activities. What a special day it was! Daniel and I were talking last night about how much more special Christmas is to us now that we have our own family. This was our 4th Christmas together. We cannot wait to celebrate again next year with a new family member added to our bunch!
