We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We enjoyed our relaxing low stress Christmas festivities. Kevin had to work a half day on Christmas Eve but as soon as he got home we headed over to Carrabba's for lunch, extremely good Italian food! Thank you Ryan & Shannon! After sufficiently stuffing ourselves we did a little last minute shopping and then headed home. We had a surprise visit/invite from the Denney's that night and headed over to their home to enjoy some more good food and good company. It was fun to get to know them a little better and sit around and chat. We didn't stay too late, just long enough for Reagan and Sheri to make Santa's cookies and then we headed home to open our one gift and read some stories. Kevin's family has a tradition to get new pajamas and that is the one gift we get to open on Christmas Eve. As you can tell Reagan was excited to get her's this year, stinkin' Dora pajamas, but she loves them. Reagan was also very excited to set out Santa's cookies and get everything ready for him to come, surprisingly she went to bed at a decent time and actually went to bed. Christmas morning was pretty eventful but that's a later post. We enjoyed watching Reagan open all of her presents and seeing her excitement at the presents Santa had brought her. All in all the day was full of playing with toys, Kevin watching the movies he got, Better Off Dead, classic in his opinion! That night we had dessert with the Ravstens and again great company............ So the moral of this very long account of Christmas is we enjoyed spending time with one another and with good friends. We are grateful for the birth and life of our Savior and this time we've had to reflect on those things.
Happy New Year!
