Christmas break

I really didn't take many pictures this Christmas. Really, I haven't taken many pictures at all lately which I hope to change. I really need to get back into it. This Christmas like every Christmas since we have been married, we got a real Christmas tree. Morgan really paid more attention to it this year and we let her help us decorate the tree. Luckily most of our ornaments are homemade ones and aren't too breakable.

On Christmas Eve we went over to Kevin's sister's house. We played Christmas carols on chimes (very cool) and joined them in their family tradition of going out to Chinese food for Christmas eve. It was nice and good until Morgan spilled her apple juice all over her and my bag. Thank goodness I thought ahead and had another change of clothes for her. After dinner we we back to their house, relaxed for a bit (washed my bag and Morgan's clothes) and then we filled up on some hot chocolate and went to look at Christmas lights. We had a really nice time.

Everyone was really generous. Morgan received a lot of great gifts!

We got our nephews a big blow up ball that you can get inside of. I don't know about you, when I was a kid I would have loved this! Apparently, they did too, which turned out great :).

I don't know why, but this year I was really missing my family. I got a little emotional over being so far away from everyone, but I have to say that I have really felt the love from those family and friends I have here and across the country. I have really felt blessed by my heavenly father. I know he is watching over us and that he truly loves us.

We hope you all had a Merry Christmas and here is to a Happy New Year!!
