We had the loveliest of Christmas mornings with just our family of four. Thinking of it makes me sigh happy sighs.
|These two are just the perfect ages to enjoy Christmas with!
The morning started with Lorien completing her advent painting, and Josh reading the Christmas story from Luke.
|Then we opened stockings
|Josiah was not really interested in anything in his stocking...
|...only in the Larry the Cucumber ornament from Lorien's stocking.
|Gummy suckers were pretty much the longest-lasting hit of Christmas. I had purchased a whole package to use for gift tags and the kids couldn't get enough of them.
|I try to get them a dated ornament each year. Sometimes I fail and my mom covers for me (like last year).
|I have heard such good things about this kids' Bible. Excited to read it with Lorien.
|Veggie Tales bath toy from Grandma and Grandpa Beam
|Stacking toy for Josiah.
So then, yes, we did build the trampoline in the living room. It was totally worth it. And Mimi and Papa came over to watch the hilarity and share leftovers for dinner.
