christmas 2015

oh christmas. the busiest time of year that we are supposed to be "relaxing". :) always a blur. but always a blessing. for our family this year, we tried something new. instead of just andy and i getting the boys gifts, we decided to do stockings like normal...but to have each person get each person 1 gift. i really want to develop a heart of giving and generosity in my teaching them "how" to give is a big deal. so each person had to think about the person they were buying for, and think of something they would like. this was the most fun for me...seeing what they chose for each other. they had the greatest ideas and did so good!! it really made christmas special!!! definitely our new tradition!!
next we were off to granny's house...had some hang time on christmas eve with the cousins...and our christmas brunch the next day! lots of noise and chaos as usual...and we are waiting for one more little guy (aunt karis' baby) any time now!! the vanderveers were next...and some extended time there! saw the new star wars movie, and six flags...and our yearly dinner at the stewarts!!
