We spent Christmas Eve over at the Bartlett's. For dinner we had ham along with mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cherry salad, rolls, and cherry berry pie for dessert.
After dinner we put on the Nativity story play.
Joseph was such a handsome shepherd. I love his smile in this picture.
Here we see our three shepherds: Joseph, Isaac
and Ben Price
Kate was our somber angel.
Eli played the part of Joseph and his little cousin
Lydia Price was Mary.
This is our little family on Christmas Eve night all ready to receive Santa.
We let the kids open their P.J. presents that night. They are wearing them in this picture along with their new slippers.
Here is our tree with all the presents underneath. This year we had the kids each pick out a present for one of their siblings. They wrapped it and placed it under the tree. I think they enjoyed doing that and we plan to keep the tradition going.
Growing up in my family, we would always get a picture of all the kids lined up youngest to oldest going into the room to open our presents, so we decided to get a picture of our own. I love how Eli is pointing at the camera!
Eli really seemed to enjoy his first Christmas and was really good at tearing the paper off of his presents!
We got a blow-up Sinclair dinosaur for all of the kids this year. Here they are doing the trick the kids put together.
Isaac asked Santa for a K'nex set and this is what he got and put together with Dad.
Joseph asked for a Clone suit and we got one for Isaac too.
Isaac is on the left and Joseph is on the right.
We had a very nice Christmas and hope you did too.
