I am always so excited to watch my kids open their gifts and see their faces on Christmas morning, and this year was no exception! In fact with Owen a little older it can only be more fun. Last year he liked the ribbon and paper better than the gifts, but this year he sat on my lap and anticipated what was inside. He LOVES Mickey Mouse and Hot Wheels cars so it was a super easy Christmas on Santa! Emma is even more fun since she is at a perfect age. I couldn't wait to see her face! She is into the Disney movie Brave and anything that has to do with it. So of course Santa planned a Brave themed Christmas for her. The kids had a blast and so did we. Everyone was thoughtful and creative this year! Also getting to spend it at Grandma and Grandpa Anderson's, and the addition of Rachel and Jared, it was a very memorable Christmas. We all enjoyed every minute!
And what can we say, we brought in the evening with a delicious Christmas Dinner. We had turkey, ham, cheesy potatoes, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, home made rolls, stuffing, and orange salad. Can we say full?? We all looked a little more like Santa. Ha!
The best part of holidays like these? ...the people we spend it with and the memories we make. Every minute is so very special!
