Merry Christmas and come on in!

Merry Christmas!

I enjoyed inviting everyone in for Thanksgiving (and my bloggy-friend Linny suggested), so I'm doing it again! Come on in and join our Christmas! If you haven't seen it yet, our (non-traditional) Christmas card is here. I have to admit I'm feeling the weight this morning of everything going on around here. I'm ready for a Selah day. And maybe a nap. And it's only 7am. But, as Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday and I LOVE celebrating JESUS, let's get this party started!!

Mike reading the Christmas story from Luke 2
Jesse looking on

Me (Mindy) and Seth (he is bummed because sick...)

Cassie and Jasmine beagle

Sophie beagle

A new armband for my cell phone
Time to get back to running!

Classic cartoons on DVD

Piled with love
Jesse & Cassie with their Minecraft figures

Mike with Mickey Mouse. It came with candy. :)

I got slippers! Yay!

Jasmine beagle needs to be touching someone.
Too much going on.

I think Cassie likes her sparkly purple nail polish.

A DVD of the movie Mike was in
The Bermuda Triangle (1979)

Fuzzy sleep pants

A bendable camera stand

Risk Battlefield

A new comforter!
Ours has lots of holes that our feet get caught in.

Money for Snow Camp!

"Delete all cookies? The end is near!"
Jesse's gaming name is "Cookies." :)

We now play for a bit and head over to my family's house for lunch and presents with extended family!

Traditional Christmas lunch of waffles with peanut butter,
peaches, strawberries, chocolate syrup, whipped cream...

Tessa and her presents

Matthew got a Red Sox ball cap

Bailey is a good pillow

Elijah got Hulk hands... and he was giving himself upper cuts to the jaw

Tessa in her new hat


Seth and his dinosaur hat




Matthew in the laundry basket

Matthew's Iron Man mask

Morgan with her dolphin necklace

Jesse's Minecraft torch

Jasmine is all tired out!

Next up - relaxing, movie watching (The North Avenue Irregulars), a yummy dinner of turkey dumpling stew, and a "Happy Birthday Jesus" cheesecake!

Oh so yummy turkey dumpling stew!

Our "Happy Birthday, Jesus!" cheesecake
We don't have an eternal flame, so we got as close to eternity in numbers as we could. :)
And, of course, we sang Happy Birthday.

Cousins playing legos :)

Thank you for joining us. <3 We pray that you all had a very merry Christmas and took time to remember that Jesus' birth, death, and resurrection are the reason we celebrate. Thank you, Jesus!
