Our Christmas

This year our Christmas celebration was spread out over two days.  Christmas Eve we celebrated with Walter, Felicity, and the kids at their house.  Presents were loaded and ready to go!

So much fun watching the kids open their presents!  Each time, Theo exclaimed, “It’s a box!”

And this one!  Ahhh…melts my heart!

In the evening, we met up again at church for candlelight service.
O come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear.

Then it was home for our Christmas Eve tradition of the kids opening their “Christmas Eve presents”, which are always new pajamas and a book.  Our tree, just before we headed to bed that night.

I took almost no photos Christmas morning.  Happy dogs with new toys though!

Colette, with some of her gifts (including the much-longed for llama sweater) and some of her stocking stuffers.

A chilly (19 degree) walk with Technohubby and Bailey just before fixing dinner.  It was cold, but I love getting some fresh air and exercise on a day filled with lounging and food.

Christmas dinner: brown-sugar coated ham, green beans with onions (both from our summer garden), Colette’s whole-grain sourdough bread, mashed potatoes and gravy, and salad with raspberries.

We hope all of you had a lovely Christmas too!
