Merry Christmas, Ya Filthy Animal.

Christmas morning in all their glory! 

We don't do Christmas jammies. I mean, we have, but it's not an actual tradition. First, they are boys and rarely wear pjs anyway (as you can see) and second, they just don't care about matching or coordinating pajamas. In fact, it's something they'd buck just because they match or coordinate. So, I gave up the vision of beautifully dressed children on Christmas morning a long time ago. But, we do have Nash in his unders and Bryce looking like a 45 year old gym teacher! And that's pretty cute. Ha ha! 

They were happy with their gifts. I saw lots of excitement and smiles and genuine thankfulness, which made my mama heart happy. We all opened gifts, hung around the house, played with new toys, the boys and Travis played some football outside and we maybe started a new tradition? Chinese for dinner! After almost a week of eating ham (how many Christmas hams can you have anyway?!) and lots of extended family get togethers (and more that were planned the day after) we decided to go out and let me tell you, it must be a thing bc all the good places WERE PACKED! But, we got in and had a good time with each other and the food was delicious. It was fun and was a pretty perfect day, 

We had a great time with each of our families and were grateful to spend time with each over the holiday. We are most grateful to celebrate the birth of our Savior and are thankful for his example. We even acted out the Christmas story one night and it was oh, so sweet. Emma was baby Jesus. 

2014 was such a good year and we are thankful for all of God's blessings!
