Before Josh and I were married, we decided that one of the boundaries we would set for our little family, when we had a family, was that Christmas morning would be spent with just us and our children. We wanted those mornings to be special and just about our kids. We started the first Christmas we were married (just the two of us) and have spent all 5 Christmas mornings at home, and loved every minute of it! I’m thankful for the time as a family of 4 and love making memories with our sweet little ones!
Brody was SOOO excited when he woke-up Christmas morning! I loved seeing his reaction to his gifts!
Sweet little sister was so surprised to see new toys set up in the living room!
She spotted her little kitchen and took off running!
We loved getting to shop for pink girly gifts and tough boy gifts!
Brody used his new tools on everyone and everything that morning!
Jillian set-up her picnic from her picnic basket.
And then did some more cooking!
After we opened all our gifts, we got ready and went to church. Our church had a 9:00 service that we attended. It only lasted about an hour so we were quickly back home and in our pajamas and ready for pancakes for breakfast! Josh always makes homemade pancakes on Christmas morning. It’s one of my favorite traditions.
Brody was telling us all about what he learned at church. :)
We tried to take a few pictures of all of us, but it’s hard with two busy kiddos!
I thought a lot about last Christmas and how little Jillian was!
Love these 3!
This picture made us laugh! We were trying to get a picture of the two of them and Brody wanted to hold Jillian. She looks really amused! Ha!
One more Christmas post and then I think I can get back to regular blogging! :)
Hope y’all are having a great week!
