Christmas 2010

Kyle works a job that requires someone to be there 24 hours a day 7 days a week.  He is on a rotating schedule of day and night shifts.  It just so happened that his rotation fell so that he worked 6 am to 6 pm Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and the day after.  So we decided to do our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day traditions early on the 22 and 23.  We eat Mexican food on Christmas Eve and then come home to read the Christmas Story, and open presents.  Each child gets 3 gifts in honor of the gold, frankincense, and myrrh given Jesus.  I have enjoyed this tradition for lots of reasons one being that it keeps things simple and Kyle and I put a lot of thought into each gift.  Here are some picture highlights.

On Christmas Morning they each have a "Santa" gift and filled stockings.

We had so much fun during our own little early celebrations. Even though we really missed Daddy on the actual Christmas Eve and Christmas Morning, we had fun visiting with family.  We hope you had a Merry Christmas celebrating our Savior, and have a Happy New Year too!
