I'm taking a few minutes out of my Christmas leftovers eating project to post a few pictures from Christmas Eve and Christmas day. There are no deep thoughts or moving story here, just pictures to help me record a family activity, like much of my blog. I'm glad to share them with anyone who wants to look through them.
Christmas Eve couldn't have been more beautiful. A light snow started falling just about dark and lasted through the night. We woke up on Christmas day to a bright White Christmas.
We had lots of family and friends here on Christmas Eve....there was such a crowd that Beck felt like he needed to personally keep an eye on the candy in a candy dish. He really did just stand looking at it for a long time until someone finally gave him a piece.
EJ's piano performance will be even better when she actually learns to play the piano.
Even Jared, at 12 years old, still seems to think it OK to get new pajamas on Christmas Eve.
Wil seems to think these will fit him just fine.
New Christmas Eve pjs for EJ. Beck,
No one had more Christmas spirit than our two 4 year olds, Anna & EJ.
Wil wasn't too sure about the plan to have brunch before opening presents.
Brunch for everyone....
and then the cousins exchanged gifts with lots of hugs and thanks.
It was news to me, but apparently these Superman socks (with a cape on the back) became a big deal last year when some football player wore them for the Heisman Trophy presentation. That's all I know, but everyone was excited that Jared got a pair.
Whew, Christmas can make a little guy pretty tired.
I hope we are all getting rested from a good Christmas and looking forward to a positive new year.
