I Forgot Christmas!

Seeing as how I was slammed by First-Trimester woes shortly after New Years, it's no wonder I neglected to blog about Christmas... for 7 months.

Pre-Christmas activities.

Christmas Eve.
Traditions - doing puzzles, nativity scene, new pjs, leaving out cookies and milk for Santa and carrots for the reindeer.

This year's nativity scene.

Christmas Morning.
Our first Christmas in our own home. It was actually a lot of fun to do our own simple thing at our kids' relaxed pace. Austin, as usual, only got through a handful of gifts before having to stop and play. Ruthie diligently kept opening till the end. That's Austin's new bike that Ruthie is on. And the run-away hit of the morning was the marble toy.

Christmas Day.
Duffin traditional breakfast-orange julius, scrambled cheesy eggs, cinnamon rolls. Austin preferred his Santa-provided cereal. My fam came by in the afternoon to play and deliver another round of gifts.

It was a great holiday for us.
