The final Christmas post! If you’re sick of the Christmas posts, don’t worry- I am too. But one more…just one more!
First up… Christmas Eve
We always celebrate Christmas Eve with my family, beginning with a delicious dinner, then attending my favorite church service of the year- a candlelight service, and present opening to end the night.
Tommy was just a little bit excited about Christmas and Henry was more into eating Christmas goodies than opening presents.
This is the only picture that I have of myself during Christmas…so here it is, for better or for worse…
The famous poinsettia wrapping paper. My dad is in charge of wrapping his own gifts. He bought this paper on sale about 10 years ago and it is still around! Little did I know that one of my favorite gifts was wrapped in this beautiful paper- a Kindle!
On Christmas morning, we woke up and took off to Canada to celebrate Christmas with Dan’s family.
We were both very excited to give this gift. Can’t say that O loved it, but he was a good sport and modeled it for us. Isn’t it adorable!?
I was in charge of creating a scavenger hunt for people to find one of their gifts. It took me a while to figure how to make a hunt for 7 adults without having it be too simple or ridiculous. But, I found some cute clip art from lettering delights and put my creativity to work.
Clue #1- They had to unscramble the letters on the ornaments of the tree.
Clue #2- Each person had different clip art cut outs with letters to unscramble on them.
Clue #3- Each stocking hat had two letters on it- the letter for the word was the letter that comes between those two (confused?)
I had a good time watching people fly around the house and outside searching for their clues and presents.
We also celebrated Dan and his sister, Rachel’s birthday, shopped the Boxing Day sales, and played an intense game of Monopoly.
Dan’s high school friends live all over the place so it isn’t very often that everyone is able to get together…but there was one day that worked out for everyone. It was great to see everyone!
It was indeed a merry Christmas!
