Our First Christmas

Christmas came and went so quickly this year! We have been so busy with Christmas parties, dinners with friends, and work that the time flew by.

I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas. Jason and I certainly did. We celebrated our first Christmas as a married couple! Very exciting. 

I loved having our own tree. We decided to get a real one. I really don't want to take it down. I think it's pretty, and it was so much work. But I guess it will have to come down this weekend. 

We were able to spend a lot of time with our families over the long Christmas weekend. We had Christmas Eve dinner with my parents and brother and his girlfriend. Then we were able to go to the Christmas Eve service at Shadowbrook together before heading to Jason's aunt's house for Christmas with his extended family.

On Christmas day we woke up and had breakfast and opened presents with my family. Then we headed to Jason's parent's house for Christmas dinner, more presents, bingo, and white elephant! 

Here are some pictures, although I didn't take nearly enough!

 Our stockings; Even Daisy got one!

One of our gifts: a reindeer for each of us!

I am so thankful for Christmas to celebrate the greatest gift of all- the birth of our Savior- and to spend precious time with family.

"But when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law. God sent him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children." Galations 4:4-5
