Christmas 2009

Christmas was different this year for us. First, it was the first time both Paul and I were not with our parents for Christmas. Second, it was our first Christmas as a family of four. Third, it was our first Christmas in our house (last year we were in Cali). Fourth, it was Paul's first time celebrating Christmas on Christmas morning instead of Christmas eve.

We had a wonderful time. It was nice being just us four and starting our own traditions. We took our time opening presents and then I made a big breakfast before starting on Christmas dinner.

Jeremiah and Rachel got spoiled with lots of presents. It was so much fun watching JP's excitement as he was opening his presents.

Rachel had fun too even though she could not open her gifts. She loved watching us and loved staring at her gifts that she received.

JP was so excited he could not contain it...

Paul spoiled me with a sapphire and diamond necklace and ring (sapphire is my birthstone). I got Paul a chronological Bible.

It was one of the best Christmas's we have ever had. It was such a wonder day.

What a happy 1st Christmas in Colorado. The joy of your family time is evident in the smiles. I am sure there was some Christmas snow outside just for atmosphere. Bless you all and Happy New Year!
