Christmas Day

This year we did the same thing we have done for Christmas day since Emersyn was born. We go to the Jensen's in the morning for breakfast and presents and then head back to our house for the rest of the day to hang out with my parents and my brother and his wife.

My kids and their cousins, Genevieve (15) and Annabel (8). They will have a much younger cousin this February, Brett's brother and their wife are expecting their first! 

Everett got his first pair of TOMS! 

 So happy we got a picture of the 4 of us! This is a rare thing.

 My parents got Everett a workbench from Ikea. This is so perfect for him since his favorite thing to do is bang on things!

The kids got some really great gifts from their aunts, uncles and granparents. Brett and I only got them stocking stuffers. We really don't want the focus of Christmas to be presents but we don't want to tell people they can't get them gifts so this is a good compromise.

We had a "happy birthday to Jesus" party after dinner. My mom bought this crazy candle from the store and apparently we didn't light it correctly because all of the sudden it started emitting sparks and a huge flame. It was hilarious, although it scared Emersyn, oops!
