Christmas Recap

It was so wonderful to have Christmas on a Saturday this year! We celebrated both Saturday and Sunday.

Phew...lots of gifts!!

Jeremiah and Sarah seeing all the gifts (they weren't put out til Christmas Eve night)

Reading the story of Jesus' birth! J was so excited.

Unwrapping the first and best present - little baby Jesus.

After Jesus was in His place, we got to the stacks of gifts for the kids. Jeremiah loved his Hungry Hungry Hippos game!

Sarah loved her books.

My sweet little baby and I.

Shawn's favorite present - a home beer brewing kit. He was so happy!

Princess Sarah

After breakfast and a movie, we headed to the park to feed the ducks.

And after we got home, Sarah went for a swim. In her clothes. On December 25th!

Jeremiah played with his trains...

After dinner, we sang happy birthday to Jesus and had cake. The cake was pretty sad looking.

The kids still loved it though!

On Sunday, Grandma and Grandpa G came over to celebrate with dinner and more presents! (They were at the AWESOME Cardinals game Christmas night!)

Jeremiah flipping out over the remote-controlled Corvette. He managed to disable it when he ran into a folding chair and the chair fell on top of the car. We'll fix it though!

Sarah loves her baby and stroller.

Playing with the car on the driveway...

Sarah cuddling with Grandpa.

Jeremiah also loved his iron man hand and chest things...(not sure what they're even called!)

Grandma getting some love from Sarah Bear.

J and his Grandma and Grandpa.

It was a great weekend - we had several meals as a family and shared a great meal on Sunday with Grandma and Grandpa. It was fun in the kitchen with my mom and Ronnie - my mom and I were peeling and cutting up potatoes for mashed potatoes and Ronnie making gravy. The food was fantastic and the company was even better. I'm so thankful for my family!

Mikele - several Christmases ago, a certain beautiful woman named "Robyn" posted pictures of her looking gorgeous on Christmas morning...she said she just got up a little early and fixed her hair and makeup. So that's what I did - put on something other than my baggy pajamas and threw some makeup on my face. :)

Love your little boy's expression in the third picture! Isn't that what makes Christmas so great? :-D I really like the idea of wrapping Baby Jesus up as a present. So often, it's like, okay, we did the holy stuff, now on to the presents!! LOL. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
