Our first 'family' Christmas
It was wonderful. We started our celebration on Christmas Adam at Jeremiah's mom's home. It was nice to celebrate with them. Then celebrated Christmas Eve at the church service. It's always such a special service that brings the real reason we celebrate to the forefront of my mind. Then, we woke up to a white Christmas, beautiful! Emery Rose woke up in her "My Frist Christmas" jammies. So cute! We had all of our stockings ready, the Christmas music playing, all of the Christmas lights on. We opened presents, ate a yummy cinnamon roll breakfast, got cleaned up, and headed out the door.
We started off in Sparta for Christmas with Jeremiah's dad's side of the family. It was nice to see everyone. Then we went to my parents house for a big Christmas meal and presents. We always go to a movie on Christmas day, so we saw Gulliver's Travels. We decided to go back to my parents for left-overs, then made our way home before the roads got really bad since it was still snowing.
We were supposed to have church Sunday morning, but the roads were so bad, it was canceled. Jeremiah's mom and David ended up coming over to open their presents, then Natalie and Josh came over that evening to watch a Preds game and do presents with them.
All in all it was a great first family Christmas. Even though Emery is a baby, it's so much more fun with a kid! I'm looking forward to Christmases as she gets older.
