Christmas was a wonderful time spent with family & just enjoying being together. Our family is really close & we all genuinely enjoying spending time together. It's just really neat to see the younger ones starting their own families & being able to watch the excitement of the children as they open up their presents is really cool. And I almost forgot.... we woke up Christmas morning to a beautiful scene of snow! How magical is that? :) This is Stevie wearing his Santa suit. He had to put this on before he could open presents! What a cutie! Here are some of us enjoying our dinner. Everyone getting ready for opening of presents Caiden opening his "mow" that Grandma got him. If you know anything about Caiden, he lives, eats & breathes tractors, or "mows" as he likes to call them. This is Jack & Caleb, two of the cutest babies in the whole world! This is Jonah opening a present with his Popi All four of the little guys.

Tonight we girls (with the exception of Jack & Caleb) :) had our monthly movie night & we had so much fun! We watched the movie Elf so of course we had to decorate in the movie theme. We hung paper chains, snowflakes, & white lights all over the living room. We had spaghetti (minus the maple syrup), & Katie made & decorated sugar cookies & we had lots of candy. Lesa brought her world famous popcorn which we all loooove!!! We had a quiz at the end of the movie and Katie got all 18 questions right, Hannah got 17 right, but of course they've seen the movie a hundred times! The boys were so good tonight. I think they like movie nights. Here's a few pics of the decorations. I actually built a small Empire State Building out of Legos just like they did in the movie & was quite proud of it if I do say so myself. :) Here's cute little Jack & Caleb. Tomorrow is our annual Family Progressive Dinner & I'm so excited! I'll post pics of that too.
