I’ve said it before but I LOVE Christmas. We did lots of talking about what Christmas means to us and that we are giving and loving in celebration of Jesus’ birth. We also did lots of the fun traditions and gift giving that Christmas brings.

It actually snowed in Phoenix! Well, these pictures aren’t from the real weather we got but it did actually snow. These are from an outdoor shopping center that makes it snow each evening.

On Christmas Eve we have Sushi with my side of the family. After they left we got ready for Santa! The baby had to label the carrots for all the reindeer. He found some red labels that I had used for our cards last year (which reminds me I need to share our cards from this year) and wrote all their names on them before they threw them in the front yard.

Christmas morning was so perfect and relaxed. The boys woke up at 7:40 and brought their stockings to our room to open. Then we went up front to see what Santa brought and open up the rest of their gifts. Lots of Legos of course! Breakfast was homemade cinnamon rolls (with Legos). We spent the rest of the day with Jared’s side of the family and ended it with a trip to the movies!
