Christmas Day

We had a really fun Christmas this year. We started out the festivities with church on Christmas Eve, and dinner at Jennifer's. It was crazy trying to get from church to her house with the icy roads.

It was a long day. I woke up at 4:30 and decided to get up and get a head start on the day. I had the stockings in my room with the "stuff" out, but had not filled them, so that was my first motivation. It was so cool to have a white Christmas. My first ever. It was cold, so I turned on the fireplace.

The girls are so much fun. They came over about 9:30 and of course the first thing they did was get into the candy.

After about an hour, the living room looked pretty disastrous.

This year was also fun because we had someone else join us. Shannon. After our Christmas, Pop's mother came over and we had our annual breakfast (the only day of the year I cook breakfast) and then had our Christmas with her. Shannon and Justin left to go have Christmas with her family in Bangs. Christmas afternoon, we went to my mother's house and had Christmas and dinner with my family.

It is great to have our family close so that we can spend the day with them.

This seems like forever ago! It was a fun Christmas--especially since Shannon joined us! We're going to put up the "Zhu Zhu city" as the girls call it today. Hopefully we won't have any more hair incidents.
