Pin It We had a very relaxing Christmas this year. Christmas Eve dinner and festivities were at our place with Cory and Naoko plus Kylie and Jake and Jared, Summer, and Maci. Our favorite part of the evening was the unconfined excitement that occurred when all the kids heard Santa's bells outside while reading "Twas the night before Christmas." Another memorable moment included a duet of "Silent Night" preciously sung by Averie and Maci. Christmas morning was so much fun, especially since Averie and Kempton didn't wake up until 9:00 am! We just took our time all morning opening presents and lounging around in our PJs. Notice how many pictures there are of Kempton stuffing his face! We then headed off to Cory and Naoko's for a delicious Christmas lunch with family and some bonding in the hot tub (of all places) for the men. We feel very blessed to have family nearby!
