Christmas Day!


Oh Christmas is the BEST day! Our Christmas Morning started with my nephews jumping on top of us to wake us up. Fun.
P.S. Make sure you wear a shirt to bed if you have nephews around.... just sayin' haha!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Love me some Canadian Traditions :) Poppers! I got a little joke inside along with a flash light, and of course the traditional paper crown!
 

Christmas Day Highlights!

+ My two year old nephew screaming during a quiet moment in the church service, "I want a new IPhone!" over and over again. TOO funny.
+ The beautiful choir performance at church and my sister's Oboe performance (oh yeah, didn't you know? my sister is a professional Oboist.)
+ Monkey Bread.
+Brand new, beautiful, YELLOW, Camera Bag :)
+Trevor's face when he realized I filled his stocking full of goodies, he totally forgot about stockings!
+My nephews faces when they saw their Santa gifts.
+Pulled pork crock pot sandwiches.
+Lots of Canadian candy.
+The gorgeous blanket my Nana made for us! WOW. It couldn't be more ME :) Thanks Nana!
+Beautiful Christmas Dinner with the family.
+Skyping with my little brother ALEX on his mission in Chile :)
+Having a sweet, beautiful new little niece be born the week of Christmas, our beautiful Christmas present! We got to Skype with her too :)
+Having a beautifully set up Turkey Christmas Dinner, with Canadian poppers &everything! Did I already say that? Oh well, it was that good!
+Being surrounded by family that constantly makes me laugh and smile.
+Wonderful homemade apple and pumpkin pie. My dad makes the best pies I have ever had.
+Before opening our Christmas gifts, opening our Jesus Box. Our Jesus box is full of kind deeds and service we have witnessed other people in the family doing throughout the month. We do them anonymously and read them aloud before we open presents. This is such a fun tradition that really keeps the spirit of Christmas surrounded by its true meaning.

Hope your Christmas day was as great as mine!

  45. You have some great traditions, and it's nice that you were able to still have Christmas with people that weren't actually with you. I'm going to have to do that with my parents next year, as I'm getting married this summer and don't think we're going to be able to go up to visit them on Christmas Day.

    Your big box of candy looks like so much fun! I recognize a lot of those from traveling to England a few times, and how delicious they all are!
