Christmas Day

Connor and Bryce were able to open 2 presents on Christmas Eve. They opened a gift from Papa and Shanni and received their Christmas pajamas. Then we headed off to Christmas Eve service. It was a great night!

Christmas morning we open our stockings from Santa first and then have breakfast. After that we head into the front room to open everyone's Christmas presents. This year our family participated in "The Cost" at our church and did a smaller Christmas. We took the money we would have spent on more presents and gave it to the mission programs at church. The boys didn't care one bit and it was good practice for Adam and me, we look forward to more Christmas' spent doing and giving to the kingdom of God, instead of ourselves.

Bryce playing with one of his new toys.

I have not been able to get this shirt off my son since Christmas morning!
Connor got his "Lightening McQueen Bog Boy Bike" and couldn't wait to get outside and try the bike out. He caught on quickly and soon was zipping around with all the neighbor kids. I am proud of our future "tour de france" yellow jersey owner.

Since Connor has a big boy bike, Bryce gets to ride the big wheel. He was in heaven! We had a great morning riding. We even went for a family bike ride with Bryce on my bike. Connor learned about stop signs and which side on the road bikers can be on. We look forward to more family rides to the parks and pools when it gets warmer.

The boys had a great time lovin' on their Gigi. What a great Christmas!
