Christmas at Home

It was nice this year that Todd was off for Christmas Eve! We spent the day cooking for Christmas dinner and just hanging out and enjoying the day. Our tradition has been to eat Papa Murphy's pizza for dinner so that we don't have to do any extra cooking for Christmas Eve. Before bed the kids always get to open their new Christmas pj's from Grandmom and Grandpa!

Here they are showing off the new pajamas!
Christmas morning always begins with Todd reading the Christmas story. Then the kids get to look in their stockings!

Then they get to open gifts! We try to get them each 3 gifts as a symbol of the 3 gifts that the wise men brought to baby Jesus!

This year was a little bit unusual as Todd and I did not fill stockings or buy any gifts for each other. We got this new TV, stand, speakers, and bookshelves for Christmas this year. We got money from Todd's family to pay for part of the expenses, but the rest of it was our gift to each other. It looks very nice!
After a yummy french toast breakfast made by Daddy, the kids were ready to try out their new DS games!
We had some friends come over to share Christmas dinner with us and watch The Nativity Story. And, of course we had our birthday part for Jesus which included this red velvet cake!
