I woke up at about 8:30 am to find my Mom, Kyle, Sarah, Rachel, and Lindsay all awake and waiting. I threw together breakfast - the breakfast enchiladas that Manuela shared the link for the other day. You can find the recipe link on her blog A Cultivated Nest. We liked it very much and I will be making them again!
Kyle and Sarah took turns reading Luke 2 for us. We always want to remember why we celebrate Christmas.
Once everyone was awake and assembled, we began to open gifts. We take turns and everyone pays attention to what is being given. It keeps everyone focused and appreciative!
Sarah made this throw quilt for Kyle, with a wee bit of help. He used it last night when he went to bed.
Kamryn and I both got pretty tea things....
Our nieces came over in the afternoon. Wild games of spoon were played, more gifts exchanged and great food eaten.
We played Grandma and Grandpa's wii - Tim, myself, our friend Denny and Emma bowled and we bowled with Kyle. Then the kids did some other games and Kyle and Sarah played Mario Kart.
Here we are relaxing and watching the kids on the wii...Rachel was checking out something online...
My Momma showing off her pretty necklace that Rachel made...
It was a beautiful day together! We even ended up with a white Christmas! Amazing!
I am thankful for Jesus and am happy to celebrate His coming. The tree while still beautiful, is dry and will be making its way to the burn pile soon, but the Reason for the season remains.
I hope your day was equally special. I can't wait to visit your blogs to see!
