We got snow 2 days before Christmas - lots of it so we had a white Christmas after all. Jayna & crew came up Sat and we had a birthday dinner for her and then Christy & crew came on Sunday night - during the big snow storm - but thankfully they arrived safe and sound. We just hung out and prepared for Christmas. Christmas Eve we did the nativity with the young ones and sang Christmas songs. It was good times. Christmas morning was controlled chaos. We tried to open presents one at a time and it was pretty orderly! Curt and Kallie arrive in the afternoon and so we got to see them open their presents. I think this is the first year we have not had everyone together at Christmas morning, but I'm sure as time goes on this will likely be a thing of the past. I got Christy and Kallie each a set of the Horse Carousels like Jayna's. They were thrilled with them! One of the sets didn't arrive in time for Christmas so Christy opened it first and then we re-wrapped it for Kallie to open. It worked out well! The girl cousins play so well together now. Lila and Brigitte are best friends. My mom is doing well and her heart is still in rhythm and we are so thankful! another Christmas has come and gone.
