We had a wonderful Christmas filled with lots of family, love and gifts.
Christmas Eve was spent at our home with John's parents, Grandma and Grandpa Giles, and his brother Matt's family. We played games:
We played Christmas songs on the chimes:
We had a live Nativity, (7 kids made it tight, but it worked)
We had a fun dinner and the kids each got a little gift
After everyone had left our girls got to open one gift, there christmas pajamas, but this year they came from their Vannoy grandparents. My mother also made them super warm pillow blankets to keep them warm. They loved these!
Christmas morning we have a tradition of opening and playing with Santa only gifts until after breakfast. And, before breakfast we all get dressed and ready for the day. John made a wonderful breakfast this year while I fixed hair and got 4 little girls ready. Here are the girls highlight gifts:
Abby (a Barbie cruise ship):
Macey (a loving family camper, she thinks its for Polly pockets):
Later that afternoon we went to the Giles (Johns parents) for dinner. We had a wonderful Christmas and I am so thankful for the spirit of our Savior here in our home.
