Christmas 2009 in a Nutshell

  • Papa, Grandma, Uncle Adam, Aunt Heather, Chad, Megan, Bree, Mason, and Riley; all together at our house for Christmas
  • Delicious Christmas Eve roast beef (technically braised beef) dinner, with Grandma's delicious chocolate cream pie and lemon cheesecake desserts
  • Christmas Eve reading about the birth of Christ in the Bible and singing Christmas Hymns
  • Everyone opening new Christmas pajamas (in future I'll stick to homemade PJ pants only; that project was a little too big!)
  • Papa protesting the idea to watch a certain movie, and Bree subsequently telling him, "Papa, you're on the naughty list!"
  • Homemade cheeseball, fudge, and See's candy
  • Seeing Bree and Mason so excited Christmas morning because Santa came
  • Eating the traditional strawberry waffles for breakfast
  • Opening an embarrassing number of gifts; Mason's new cars, trucks, helicopter, and motorcycles; Bree's new toy kitty: Riley's hand-painted onesies from Heather and Adam; high-quality personalized steel water bottles and a pressure cooker from Grandma and Papa Wilkinson; a Wii made possible by Grandma and Papa Wallace; etc, etc, etc
  • Watching the kids play so contentedly and quietly with their new toys
  • Seeing a little toy car and Ariel doll join the Little People Nativity in visiting baby Jesus
  • Playing games as a family
  • Enjoying Chad's shortened work schedule, even though the hours he had to work both days were no fun
  • Hugs and kisses all around
  • Family, love, Christ, giving; the true joys of Christmas

It looks like everyone had a lot of fun! The PJs were cute! I love the pictures (as always!)

Great pics. I can't believe you made those pjs after having a new baby and being a mother to three. I am, as always, impressed.
