We had a busy but oh so magical December. We put up the tree and the kids got to decorate the entire thing. They were really into it. The Christmas music blasting and the kids laughing and saying "ooh" and "ahh," and my favorite "I made that."
Our weather has been so mild, we have spent some Saturdays outside and even riding.
Grady did great at his Christmas program. He said his line perfect and was a loud singer.
Kylie was an elf this year for her kindergarten Christmas program. She did a great even though so wasn't feeling 100%. She made a beautiful Christmas tree plate as our gift this year and I will cherish it forever.
We celebrated Christmas at Nany& Ba's house the Sunday before Christmas. All five boy cousins running around with NERF guns, pure FUN! Then we headed to Aunt Kerry & Uncle Craig's for a fun Stewart Christmas-yummy carne aside, mexican food, five favorite things, candy exchange, and a Seahawks win! LOVED IT!
The girls got puppies and they enjoyed every minute together.
Happy 29th Birthday Uncle Nick!
Christmas Eve was spent at Katie & Bryan's house. A wonderful smoked brisket on the menu, just wonderful Uncle Bryan. Then lots of great visiting and reminiscing. We enjoyed a candle light service at New Life church. One little incident with the candle, but a beautiful service and the kids sang Happy Birthday to Jesus. It was precious.
We sprinkled "grinch dust" and "reindeer food" then read the "Night Before Christmas," then off to bed. Kylie woke to a Barbie house and Grady to a Lego city and Ninjago race car. Kylie's comment "Santa really does read my letter."
Christmas Day was spend it Ellensburg after a ranch style breakfast cooked by Daddy.
Uncles spent the day building Legos.
Granny & Papa got the kids flippez. So cool.
Ryan & I received scarves from Granny & Papa.
Saturday we made the trip to Pomeroy to enjoy Christmas with the McKerinan's (my mom's side)
We loved every minute spent in Ellensburg with uncles, aunts, grandma, and grandpa.
I heart my family!
We loved all the parties, get-togethers, food, and magic moments of FAMILY. This year was a fun year, the kids were into the spirit of Christmas and all the merry of the holidays. Getting ready for a relaxing New Years Eve! We will miss December and all the fun to be had. Looking forward to 2015!
