Yohn read the Christmas story as told by Matthew. We talked about Christmas and what it meant for Jesus to come. The kids surprisingly asked a few questions and then we opened presents.
Elisha loved his new hat, can you tell?
And Bethany got those cowgirl boots she was asking for.
Both my boys got new hats.
And I got a new Snoopy for my collection.
Mmmmm.... Sweet Pumpkin Spice!
My favorite gift to Yohn. It's a photo canvas with our kids' sillouettes and a Bible verse.
The much anticipated Wii!
And Toy Story 3 DVD and a game to go with the new game system.
This shirt is so Elisha! He and his friends have been playing a lot of rock, paper, scissors so when I saw this shirt I knew I had to get it.
Happy Birthday Jesus!
Bethany's suggestion for the year was to get a cake and have a birthday party in the evening. I've heard of lots of people do it but we've never done it ourselves. She thought it was all her idea and was so very excited so we went with it. It was a great way to end our Christmas day together and she asked if we could to it again next year. Sure sweet girl, every year if that's what you want, it's a great new tradition.
