Christmas...in a nutshell!

Can you really believe the holiday season is already over?!? I always look forward to this time of year and then before you know it - it's GONE! Well, to be honest, I am glad! It was a crazy one for us! We are so blessed and lucky to have such great families to spend the holidays with. We took a few pictures along the way - so here is what we have been up to!

Walker's first Christmas! He had a ball, but was tired by the end of the day!

Christmas Eve at Grandma Mauss'. It is tradition to go there and eat dinner. We all bring a $10.00 gift for exchange. It is always a really fun time!
This year at Grandma Mauss' all of the kids dressed up and we did a little nativity play. It was SO CUTE! I had to post this picture of our neice Annie, she was Mary. Jackson was a shepherd and Charlie was a wiseman. It was SO CUTE!
Christmas Day starts bright and early at my mom's house - 8:00am! (yeah lets hope that ends soon!) But it is always so much fun! My mom is like a kid - she just loves it! This is Whitney, Tony, Walker and Ashton. As the kiddies get older - it is going to be so much fun!

We then head to Jake's parents house. Walker gave Charlie a spiderman outfit - he loved it! As you can see he has the moves for it too!!

Last but not least - I think Jake's favorite gift - his ONE PIECER! He wears it to bed almost every night!!

Christmas is such a fun time of year. I think I really learned this year that I need to focus more on the meaning and not so much the shopping and running around. One of my favorite scriptures always reminds me of Christmas and I hope it will help you too Isaiah 9:6:

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given and the government

shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful,

Counsellor, The mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.

You're right, Tey, Christmas is crazy and fun. We had a great time with you guys during the holidays. When Walkie feels better, you guys should come over for a PJ party and Justin and Jake can be twins! They're special! (and we're popular)
