Christmas 2014

This year was only the second Christmas that we woke up in our own house on Christmas morning. We missed being with family, but had a great time as a family enjoying a slower Christmas morning. We did the devotional "What God Wants for Christmas" which has seven boxes to open and scripture to read about each character in the Christmas narrative. The kids opened their stockings and then we had breakfast (monkey bread, egg casserole, and fruit). We spent the next couple of hours opening gifts and playing with them. We watched The Nativity Story movie and then skyped with Papa, Gigi, Uncle Ryan, Aunt Liz, Uncle Jason, Aunt Laura, Ethan, and Noelle. That afternoon we went over to our friends, the Bantas, house and had a yummy steak dinner and played games. It was a fun Christmas day!
