This Christmas was full of fun. We did things as we normally do but we had Grandpa and Grandma Crockett spend the night along with Skyler, Becky, Devon and Trent. So lets say we had a house full.
On Christmas Eve we made chicken wings (Skylers awesome recipe), played games and laughed the night away. We did the Birth of Baby Jesus story and the kids thought it was so fun to be a part in the play. Then the kids were off to bed.
Yep we kept our tradition of ringing bells outside their window and wishing them a Merry Christmas from Santa before the fell asleep. We have done this since Ty and Kai'imi were one. We have loved this. This year the three Kids slept in Ilikea's room upstairs. You should of seen the looks on their face as Santa said Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good Night.
So after that we went to bed our selves. I think I am still a little kid and have a hard time still falling asleep. Finally Christmas Morning...... Its 8:30 and finally the kids are getting up. I have the kids go downstairs and get everyone upstairs to see what Santa brought. This year Santa brought a new Bunny (thanks to our Home teachers) for the kids. The biggest part of our Christmas was spent the first of December going to Disneyland.
After opening presents and cleaning up we had lunch, played games and then enjoyed a nice dinner together as a family.
This year we have been blessed with so much. I can't even being to say how much we have been blessed. I know because of our SAVIOR this day is made.
Also Happy Birthday Granny, I love you and miss you so very much. Each day has been harder and harder since you left this earth I cant wait to see you again in Heaven. Thank you for everything and you will always be so close to my heart.
