We had a wonderful Christmas this year! I hope all of you did too! Kevin, the kids and I celebrated as a family on the 23rd before heading out of town to visit family. The first thing we did was make gingerbread houses, our tradition for the past 3 years. (See last years houses here, and the recipe here) We had a little trouble this year with our houses staying together, so Caleb's became a saggy A-frame instead! But we persevered and had a great time (and a sugar buzz). In the picture above from left to right is Kevin's, mine, Rebekah's, and then Caleb's.
Before we open presents, we always read the Christmas story. We don't ever want to forget the true reason for the season!
They loved their aprons!
I think Caleb liked his tie too.
And here's baby Mollie all decked out in her new pajamas.
The paper dolls were fun, but it was hard to share the board...
Bean bag tic tac toe went over well too. I reused a box to wrap it in, and you should have seen the look on Caleb's face when he thought he was getting dishes! Priceless!
The rest of the Christmas holiday was spent with family, being spoiled with presents, good food, and treats galore! Here is one last picture of the kids playing with their cousin, isn't he a cutie?
