Our Florida trip - Christmas Day

We had a wonderful Christmas Day!  Ry was pretty patient and more into breakfast, so we had a yummy big breakfast then opened presents.  Grandpa, Grandma Deb and Auntie Kimmy got us all such fun stuff... from a big farm play set, to a truck and lunar rover, to books, puzzles, and bath toys... and the kids are having so much fun with all of it now too.  My mom, Lainie, and Gary came over in the afternoon for Christmas dinner (and later Deb's sister Linda and her boys Brandon and Kyle joined us for dessert too).  Fun and precious family times!

This is one of the best photos of the three of us we have! :)

Grandpa and Grandma Deb made a fabulous meal!

Kimmy and her friend Doris

Maylee was especially snuggly (she had a bit of a fever, so we took it easy)

We went on a drive to see the Christmas lights... this ariplane was a favorite

And I liked this one... a reminder of what the Christmas season is all about... from loving each other, to the love God showed us when He sent His Son to earth as a baby

Our Florida trip - Christmas Eve

On Christmas Eve we spent some time in the morning with my family, then were back over at my mom and Larry's for dinner and gifts (we missed Larry who was up in Ohio with his grandkids for the week).  We usually spend Christmas Eve at my mom's, and Christmas Day with Jason's family.  My mom made her delicious salmon, and we had a lovely evening together!  Rylan was especially excited to open presents, and we all enjoyed all the fun and thoughtful gifts!  Lots of happy memories...
