What an incredibly fun and meaningful Christmas!

We had a snow storm... Hannah and Liam had fun making a 'snow storm' of tp.  She really wanted a white Christmas.

 We had presents, Nate enjoyed opening a special one from Grandpa Bill and Grandma Sue.

We had stockings, that were filled by santa.

And we enjoyed our sweet little Christmas tree.

 We even enjoyed one little boy eating from a spoon his favorite new dessert, cheesecake.

All six of us enjoyed Christmas eve dinner here at home, yummy lasagna.   I really wanted to go to candlelight service on Christmas eve but Colin was working and I ran low on patience.  We opened one present each that evening.  Then on Christmas morning four kids opened their presents and we all then went to Michael's house so Hannah and Nate could enjoy spending time with their dad.  He had a fabulous breakfast of french toast and sausage.  Afternoon was spent with my sister Debbie's family.  As their Christmas gift to all of us, they heated their outdoor swimming pool and had a scrumptious Christmas dinner for about 50 people.  Yummy and lots of fun seeing extended family we don't often see.  The next day, we drove to Tacoma and had a fun 'second' Christmas celebration with Grandma Dorothy, and the kids' uncles.  Liam and Tommy enjoyed opening presents this year.  I read them the Christmas story from the bible on Christms Eve and we enjoyed the meaning of such a special moment of the year.  Hope everyone enjoyed this wonderful day.
