It ended up being a great, quiet day for our little family. (Full disclosure: we had the missionaries for dinner and they entertained us quite a bit).
The calm before the storm:
Amos and Maggie slept in until 7:45 a.m., and at that point we let them wake up Audrey. Oh, the poor girl:
After stockings, Audrey finally joined us in the land of the living:
The kids were good about taking turns and helping each other open their presents. I have to admit, it was nice and orderly. Especially for us.
Of course, the best part was the wonder and awe:
With the addition of sibling love:
We were so, so blessed this Christmas. With toys, sure, but also with a happy family and lots of neighbors and friends who made us feel loved and included.
And, in case you noticed, Ward was absent for 99% of Christmas. When he did finally show, he wasn't wearing his coordinated Christmas jammies. So rude!
He's lucky he's a baby. This is the last year that will fly.
