I just love this time of year! Celebrating the birth of our Savior, getting together with family and friends, giving of gifts to loved ones, and the food! We had a great week celebrating and it's a joy to see the excitement the kids have for the season. Here's a recap with lots of pictures.
Christmas Eve the kids opened a box with new pjs, a movie, and some snacks. We enjoyed a quiet night at home and now Blake's new favorite movie is Charlotte's Web.
Christmas morning before church the kids opened their stockings. We also Skyped with Grandpa and Grandma Pontier in Canada so the kids could open their gifts from them "live" on the computer.
|All dressed and ready for church Christmas morning!|
Later Christmas day we went to my sister Grace's house in Pella and celebrated with her family.
|Lots of fun with the Barnes cousins.|
Finally we made it back home in the evening to finish opening our presents for the kids and each other.
|Rebecca and Blake love their new scooters and had to practice riding them in the house.|
This past Saturday we had Dan's family over to our house for the De Vries Christmas. We spent almost the whole day together and had lot of fun.
|Brianna got pretty good at ripping open presents!|
|Opening gifts from Aunt Linda and Uncle Bill.|
|Trevor and Blake intent on a video game.|
|All the little grand kids!|
We still have some celebrating to do when my brothers and their families come to visit for New Years!
