The hustle and bustle of Christmas is over but the memories still warm my heart. Christmas morning we woke up to a white winter quilt of snow. Tyler’s girlfriend Monica’s car died last week so he went and picked her up to spend Christmas morning with us. They arrived back at the house around 7am. As per tradition we read the Christmas story of Jesus’ birth from Luke chapter 2 to remind us of the true meaning of Christmas before we started opening presents.
It was fun watching a little one open presents again but the expressions on the faces of my teenagers were just as priceless!
After finishing up at my house we loaded the rest of the presents in the truck and headed to my parent’s house for some more Christmas fun.
After opening up more presents there
And headed over to my mother-in-law’s for some more gift exchanges
and a game of Mexican Train
Soon it was time for the evening to end and I think the look on Gracie’s face tells it all!
Merry Christmas everyone!
