Christmas at home

This is the first year we’ve ever spent Christmas alone, and while we missed our extended family, we really enjoyed a quiet day together, celebrating Jesus’ birth and family. We finished the day off with a Christmas dinner in our home for our friends who were also spending the holiday alone. What a wonderful time of fun, games, good food & fellowship with our “NC family” on Christmas!

We couldn’t wait to see what Santa left behind on his visit, and we even let Mom & Dad wait until almost 7am!

Abby & Emily got a beautiful desk for their room…

…and Ben got a gaming chair and a Minecraft controller for his Xbox! Everyone was thrilled!

As much as we loved our big gifts, the stockings were still (and always are) our favorite!

Splat balls were definitely the hit of the stockings!

Ben loved his new chair, and Mom & Dad loved the quiet coming from the playroom with Ben’s new headphones in use!

With our stockings empty, our hearts were full on this Christmas Day! Merry Christmas everyone!
