Merry Christmas!

We had a terrific Christmas. Lots of time with family, both our little one and our parents. 

Christmas Eve's eve the kids and I attempted the candlelight service at church. Attempted being the keyword. Let's just say that we left lots of room for improvement next year, but we didn't set anything on fire, so win. 

Christmas Eve, Chris and I played elves and set up everything that 'Santa' sent our good little children.
Christmas morning, these sweet little children really were good, sleeping until after 8:00am! And it's amazing how the power of presents will get everyone to look in the general direction of the camera. Our three cuties!
Excitement over going to East Texas also gets a similar reaction; they love their aunts, uncles, and grandparents!
First stop was my parents house! And Sarah came through with pictures, because per the norm, I completely forgot to pull my camera out of the bag.

Meri and her bestie!
Otto was in his element, presents everywhere!
Ned even caught on to the unwrapping, with lots of help from his older siblings.
We drew names this year, and Israel really did a great job picking this out for Sam and Stuart;)
Gift cards! His house is livable, woohoo!
Aunt Hannah found this crazy fun rocket for the kids, they love it!
A bee suit from Chris!
Do we look like twins? Hawt twins.
Hannah won the day in my book. She got me fabric that I have been dreaming about for months! It is SO pretty and perfect for curtains in Meri's room.
Can't wait to sew them up and put the finishing touches on her room. Thank you, Hannah!
The youngest baby of the crew with the two future youngest!
We spent that night in Flint, and woke up early Sunday morning to hit the indoor water park with Chris' family! Daniel even made it! So fun to have all of these crazies together. 
And Aunt Sarah wasn't there, so this is the only picture that happened. Not safe to break out the camera when surrounded by little people and swimming pools! But we had a great time, different from the norm and relaxing.

Merry Christmas, everyone!
