Christmas 2011

This year since we had no kitchen, Stephan and Carina invited us over to watch the kids open their presents at 7 AM then have breakfast together. We also helped Stephan, who was born on Christmas, celebrated his 33rd birthday. What fun!

Christmas Eve

This year we spent some time with the Jensens for opening a few presents, hot chocolate, Luke 2 video, and advent stickers. The children were excited to give us the gifts they had each chosen for us at the $1 store--which turned out to be wonderful and practical gifts.

The boys decorated sugar cookies while the girls played with their gifts.
