Making Memories

Christmas 2016

Every year we attend our church’s Christmas Eve service.  I always try to snap a quick picture of the four of us before we head out because I know that once we get to the church we will not have time.

After we got home the girls made some reindeer food.

and then of course they had to decorate some cookies for Santa.

Finally it was time to sprinkle the food outside and head to bed.

Christmas morning I snapped one last picture before the craziness of opening presents.

Now time to wake up the girls…because they were still asleep at 7:30!!  This is really late for our girls.

Another tradition we have is to take a family picture on Christmas morning (love this tradition!)

After we opened all of our presents we headed to the Moviehouse & Eatery to watch Sing.

After the movies the girls spent all afternoon playing with their new toys…

They tried out their new roller blades.  We thought it would be best to to practice in the backyard first.

And then we all had some family fun playing Pie in the Face.

Danny and I both agree that this was probably one of the best Christmases we have had in a long time because there was no fighting and the girls loved every one of their presents.  We just had a great time spending time together all day!!  Danny and I ended the crazy day  by  watching the best Christmas movie ever…

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

  1. Looks like a perfect day! I bought pie in the face but we never got around to playing…hoping to take it with us to New Mexico and play with our little cousins. Carly Jo is begging to go see Sing and it is blah and dreary here today so I’m thinking that may be on the agenda!

  2. What a fun Christmas! I love that you guys go to the movies on Christmas day. I think we are going to try to see Sing before break is over. Pie in the Face is so much fun 🙂 I love the rollerblading pictures. Have a great day!
