Working on Christmas ornaments

Everyone made one

Minah wasn't interested for too long.  She just wanted to play with the toys.

Santa arrived to pass out some presents.

Everyone was so excited!

MInah wanted big brother to help her.

Minah likes to be near Santa but not too close!

Chloe made sure to tell him what she wanted for Christmas!

Jacob was so sweet too!

All of the kids!

Grandma and Grandpa wrap each Grandchild's presents in the same paper so it is easy for them to find theirs.  Minah was so excited!

On December 18th we had our family Christmas with Matt's side of the family.  It was so fun to see everyone.  First we enjoyed a yummy meal.  Next we made Christmas ornaments.  It was amazing to see all of the creative things that were made!  Next Santa arrived to the children's amazement.  He passed out some crafts for the little ones.  Then it was time to open gifts (I think that is the kid's favorite part.)  We celebrated my nephew Chris' 18th birthday which was the week before.  I can't believe he is 18 years old!  Uncle Bob brought over his Wii Connect and the kids (and adults) had a great time.  Even the little girls gave it a try!  It was such a great day and it is always so fun enjoying the holidays with family.


  1. What a beautiful family! I love the little girls in their matching outfits!

  2. Great family photos! Thanks for sharing! I agree with Grace, the matching outfits are adorable!
