A Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

We had a wonderfully quiet Christmas. It's so rare for all of us to be together so much and we just enjoyed the time we had. We went to the candlelight Christmas Eve service at church and then Megan begged for some "Christmas ice cream". Then the kids were coerced in front of the tree for a picture.

Never mind the expensive toys...these Dollar Store swords were the hit this Christmas. I should have known.

I know it's strange, but Matt asked for a smoothie maker this Christmas and got the Magic Bullet. I figured it'll be a good dorm room appliance to take with him next year.

The girls with their live cubs. They were so excited to get these. This is the only thing they asked for this year.

Megan's so sweet. She spent some of her break making a quilt for the girls' animals.

On New Year's Eve both Megan and Matt had plans with friends and Pat and I invited some families over to play games. The little ones played and watched a movie while we talked and played games. Both of the families were part of our small group Bible study this summer so it was good to get together again.

Happy New Year to you all!!
