Our Family's Christmas Celebration

Our Favorite Things at Christmas

Christmas Carolers

Our 15-yr old son pieced this table runner and Pearly-girl (11 yrs) machine quilted it. I will always treasure this table runner!

The children woke up around 7:30 a.m. and opened their stockings. The stockings were stuffed with all kinds of snacks (nuts, mango, gum, corn nuts, hot chocolate or mocha packages, little gifts, juice boxes, etc). While the children were snacking and opening their stocking gifts, dh and I slept in. Dh woke up a little later and prepared our special tradition of crepes for Christmas morning breakfast.

Dh's homemade crepes

This is what we look forward to each year!

The crepes are filled with cream cheese and cherries, topped with a drizzling of powdered sugar.

After a delicious breakfast, we sat around while Papa read the Christmas story from the children's Bible.

And, of course, could a day ever be complete without rough-housing with Papa? Not with 4 boys!

Finally by the time the Christmas story is over, it's about noon and time to open gifts. Here's one happy camper.

The rest of the day was spent playing with our new Christmas toys. Later, dh made a superb standing rib roast, mashed potatoes/gravy, peas, etc. It was out of this world. Dh was wonderful - he did all the cooking which gave me the freedom to take care of my nearly 37-wk pregnant body that is not doing so well lately! My dh is a keeper!

Merry Christmas to all of our friends and family!
