Our Christmas morning began with stocking gifts and then snuggling with toys received the night before. Charlie is in love with this bike...as you can see.
Emelia made us breakfast tea with her Addy doll.
After Breakfast and family worship we headed out for a walk. Such a beautiful day!
In the afternoon we reenacted the Christmas story with our little people nativity set.
Then we had a candlelight dinner. So... I completely forgot to thaw the turkey so we had pretzel crusted chicken breast with a creamy cheese mustard sauce. Totally nontraditional but completely yummy!
Earlier, while the boys were sleeping, Emelia and I made a Birthday cake for Jesus. We sang and ate cake after dinner.
Andrew and I were busy putting Emelia and Levi to bed. Charlie was being so good and quiet. That should have been a warning that something was happening...
(Charlie found Emelia's new Mr.Sniff markers)
This was the first Christmas since our honeymoon that we spent it with our immediate family. It was wonderful! Very calm and special.
Christmas day also had another special meaning to us (besides the birth of our savior). The day also marked Levi's time WITH us as the same amount of days as WITHOUT us. His first 5.5 months were spent in an orphanage and Hannah's Hope. His second 5.5 months were in our family. I cannot believe he has almost been home 6 months. In 2 weeks he will be a 1 year old! This has been a very blessed and wonderful year!
