Family Life

Christmas

I didn’t quite realize how behind I was in posting on my blog. It’s February, and I still haven’t posted about Christmas. It happens. So here are Christmas pictures.

First, a family Christmas party at Liz’s house. William and Rachel were visiting from Montana, so we got to see them.

This is what happens when the men watch the children:

I like Christmas Eve better: we acted out the nativity again, watched Christmas movies, and ate bread and milk in the dark.

But the kids enjoyed their presents and giving to each other. img_8835

Grandma and Grandpa came over later on in the day and we opened up some more presents. It was a nice, simple Christmas. It was good to be in our own house during the holidays, even though we had to leave the next week.
