Christmas Day

Christmas morning was so much fun! I have been waiting a few years to be at home with our kids for Christmas morning. It was everything I anticipated. As we walked down the stairs to see what Santa left for our family, Jack said, "OOHHHHH! SANTA!" I don't think he quite understood everything, but he noticed the train set and candy right away! Jack's stocking
Mine and Jason's stockings
And our sweet Gavin's stocking

After we opened Santa's gifts, my family came over and we had Christmas breakfast.

And here is the big gift . . . Jack got a swing set!!

And a Woody figurine.
(According to Jason, it is NOT a doll)
A little afternoon nap with dad is always a necessity on a day like Christmas!
And nothing like a night swim in the jacuzzi!
Uncle James even brought over their dog for Jack to play with.
And talking with Elder Matthew Mortensen was definitely a highlight of the day.
Becca even got to announce her engagement to her boyfriend Corby!
Days like Christmas are always a little bittersweet, but it is because of our Savior that we have hope and peace. Even when we are missing those we love so much.
