Our Christmas

What a wonderful weekend. It was spent with family, friends, and food, way too much food. It was spent laughing...a LOT, listening to music and singing along, opening presents, reading God's word, sharing our many blessing over the past year, watching movies, playing games, and going on walks. It was different than others years, but good. We spread out the Christmas festivities over Christmas Eve and Christmas day. It made Christmas lasted that much longer. 

But even with all the celebrating my heart ached missing the family that wasn't able to be with us. Troy, Bekah, Dakota, Kate, and Hope it's just not the same without you. There is a huge hole that only you can fill. I miss you! 

I am really disappointed in something though......the pictures. Can someone please teach my how to take a good picture with my dang camera?! A good friend gave me a nice camera last year along with two lenses. I'm so excited about it, but it might be a little to nice for me. I can't figure it out. I took a bunch of pictures with it, but had it on the wrong settings and none of them turned out at all. Oh well, moving on. I guess I really should read the owners manuel. 

Eight months and just started crawling! Can't believe it, she's been in the world longer than I was pregnant with her. 

The house was decorated so beautifully! 

These were the kids stockings when they were little and as they've grown and gotten married and had kids, mom adds names to them. Such a fun tradition. 

V wore mom's bonnet and jacket from when she was a baby that her grandmother made for her. How special!

On our way to the Bridge for Christmas Eve service. We're living in Bakersfield for the next month or so and will going to that church while we're here and looking forward to it.

Christmas morning.

Papou and Yiayia cuddled up with the new blanket mom made for them.

I married into a family with some seriously good cooks. Dinner was amazing. 

We've been putting V in the wagon and going on lots of walks. Elijah loves pulling her.

Could he be any cuter?

We LOVE our Yiayia.
