We had a great Christmas this year! The only thing that was a bit of a bummer was that Ben had duty on Christmas Eve. Santa and his elves had a more difficult time getting everything ready for a magical Christmas morning without him, but they managed. The kids had to be corralled in our bedroom until he came home at about 8:00 so that was a bit difficult but once we got rolling, it was all fun.
Zoa got a new bedroom set, complete with bed, dresser, and nightstand. She really likes her new furniture and Aven is enjoying Zoa's old bed and dresser. You can see Zoa's nightstand in the background of this picture of her.
Drake got a much needed new bike. His previous bike was Zoa's hand-me-down painted to look like a boy bike. It was so small that he had a difficult time keeping up with his friends when they rode bikes together. He looks so grown up on this big new bike.
Aven got a new baby and stroller. She was cute on
Christmas morning. Each present she would open would be added to the basket of her new stroller and wheeled around the house. She had a hard time letting me take stuff out of there to put it away the next day.
We spent the day setting up Zoa's new furniture so she could sleep in her new bed. We also made our Christmas dinner that day and spent some time playing games together.
We felt very grateful for our blessings as we enjoyed each other's company that day. We hope your Christmas day was as enjoyable as ours.
