Our Christmas morning.
(We kept Beza out of school to celebrate.)
(Click HERE for our morning at warp-speed.)
All day long we ate lots of yummy food and drank lots of smoothies. In the afternoon we had a cheese tasting test.
Then, though it was a warm and foggy day, we made our own white Christmas. (With Insta-Snow.)
There was one last surprise for them in the garage. (Perhaps the most unusual gift ever--but they have been using them a lot. ;)
We ended the day with birthday cake for Jesus.
We packed up the van and headed out into more warmish, gray skies. It was a great time to practice some new knitting skills.
We had the usual my-family festivities that started with Bubsy giving us all a lesson on how to (and not to) group text each other. :) Then M and T did a little skit with the Camel Song.
After that we played a Pictionary-style game with my parents--we drew memories for them to guess.
Then my parents came up with a newlywed-style game for us to play to see how well each couple knows each other.
After opening lots of gifts we posed for our annual dress-alike photo. (This year it was just antlers. Also, because inevitiably someone's eyes are always closed--ahem, usually mine--we all closed our eyes for one, too.)
Then we hurried off to church and came out to the most beautiful sunset (and full moon).
Then M and T did one more round of the Camel Song for Nana and Pop at dinner.
We opened gifts in the morning with Nana and Pop.
Then they played for a while.
Later we visited Grandpa and Grandma Taylor (who was recuperating at the rehab center from a fall).
Before coming back to Nana and Pop's to open more gifts when the cousins arrived.
(We didn't do such a great job of taking cousin pictures, but they had such a fun time together.)
I met my sisters, mom and cousin for coffee. Then spent most of the day out shopping by myself. :)
We spent the morning with my family. On the way to my parents' M spotted this bald eagle.
Then we made the foggy drive back to our house. :)
We loved spending time with the people we love. It was such a good Christmas.
