Christmas was simply wonderful this year. Seriously, it was awesome. Our kids are at such amazing ages. It is so magical and so much fun, especially leading up to Christmas.

Making cookies for Santa.

We had a delicious Christmas Eve dinner at my parents' house. Mckinley got to be Mary and Ava was baby Jesus for the Nativity. Tyler held the star, and Kallie refused to be in it. (that girl!!!!)

Leaving our cookies and milk and carrots for Santa and the reindeer on Christmas Eve.

Christmas morning!! Everyone was so excited to help Ava open her one and only present from our neighbor Sally.

Three years in a row we have had the most magical white Christmas where it snowed a ton on Christmas Eve. So awesome!!!

After presents Brandon made bacon, pancakes, and eggs while I nursed Ava.

After Church Brandon took the kids out to play while I sat and talked with Ava on my lap. This girl loves to coo back and forth and it is just so much fun!

We had tons of fun over at Brandon's parents on Christmas evening. Karen made a delicious ham dinner and we loved spending time with family.
