Christmas 2012

Hope you all had a wonderful day on Christmas.  We sure did!  Our house was host to Christmas morning breakfast with my parents, Justin's parents, my sister & Justin's brother (yes, 2 sisters married 2 brothers) and my nieces and nephews who are known around our house collectively as "the cousins".  I am sure Lydia was the first awake but she knew she wasn't allowed out of her room till 7am.  Emma, who had been pretty sick, slept past 7.  We opened presents, ate breakfast, visited then everyone left.  We enjoyed just being together as a family then went to my in-laws house for dinner. 

We enjoyed the fun, the food and most importantly the reason for the season, Jesus' birth.  I pray you are blessed as the new year approaches.  I also pray that you are able to enjoy and receive the abundant love of your Savior.  Blessings!
