Because of yucky weather we weren't able to travel for Christmas Eve like normal, but it was nice to be mellow and have the day at home too. We joined friends for dinner before church and then had them over for dessert following. Just what it's all about. Time with loved ones celebrating the birth of our King. Here's some pictures of the kids enjoying the festivities. Since we would normally open gifts from my family Christmas eve, we let the kids go ahead and do that, then Christmas Day we open gifts from us and we stay in our pj's as long as possible and play with all our stuff. Obviously, it was Emily's first Christmas and it was so fun watching her take it all in. She tore the wrapping paper, and then tried to eat it. She really didn't care much about whatever she found inside until we really opened it for her to hold/chew on/etc. good times.
