Christmas day. Part II.

We really enjoyed Christmas day this year.  It was super relaxed even though it looks like we run around all day.  We both love spending time with our families.  I really feel like that is what Christmas should be about, you know?  Just being with your family no matter how big or small.  We are lucky and blessed to live close to many loved ones.  I know as we have more kids and as they get older it will be harder to get going in the morning, but this works for us now and we are pretty happy with it.  I love knowing our kids will have memories with their many cousins and their Grandparents during Christmastime.  Lucky kids.

And that concludes Christmas 2012.
