We had a small dinner with our family Christmas Eve and then opened up one present (new jammies) and then watched The Nativity. All the kids were hilarious with their comments but were also quiet at all the right moments. Dan's Aunt, Victoria, arrived just after we finished watching the movie so we watched it a second time and then put the kids to bed after placing some cookies and carrots for Santa and his reindeer out on the piano bench. We stayed up until midnight wrapping presents and chatting.
Christmas morning, Hannah came in at 7:30 am and was SO excited! Bella, Charlie and Faith were all dazed and tired :). While opening presents we received a phone call from Dan's mom and had a chance to talk to her for a while! We then had a delicious, big breakfast of apple turnovers, almond danish pastry, cream cheese eggs, bacon, pineapple, orange juice and hot chocolate. We Skyped with my mom in the afternoon. We received her gifts yesterday and had a fun second Christmas!!
