Christmas 2013

Our Christmas vacation was an interesting one!
We were all hit by the tummy bug for a good solid week of our 2 week break. One person would get it, then the next, and so on like dominoes!  What a bummer.  But the good news was the actual Christmas celebration was nice. Here is a little photo recap of our holiday!

Buddy our elf said good-bye

And continued the tradition of bringing Christmas jammies for Christmas Eve

For Christmas Eve we had appetizers at my parents' house before church

After church we came home and had birthday cake for Jesus

We left Santa cookies, milk, and cheese stick for Rudolph. (We didn't have any carrots!)

Christmas morning the kids woke up and we opened presents

After opening presents at our house, we headed over to my parents' house to open more gifts!

Then my older sister and her family came over.  We all had a delicious lunch, the kids played outside, and we opened more gifts!

Later that afternoon we headed back to our house.  Nick's mom and grandma came over with dinner and more gifts!  We had another fun celebration!

I hope you all had as great a Christmas as we did!
Happy 2014!

What a great celebration! Glad you all got the stomach bug out of the way before it all began. Wishing you a wonderful 2014.
