One of the best parts of Christmas was seeing my brother! He was able to get away for a few days and we loved getting to spend time with him!
Matt treated him to the Panther's game on Sunday afternoon! They had great seats and had a fun time cheering the Panther's to a big win!
While they were at the game, I took the kids to the Christmas Eve service at church.
Here is my sweet Emery at the service! She was so sweet holding her candle!
Monday morning my kids were up just before 6! This was actually the first year that they woke up really early! Usually Matt and I are waiting on them:)
It was hard to get pics of Christmas morning because they were so excited and they were moving so quickly...but here are a few to help me remember the day!
Jake didn't ask for many specific things, so he had a bunch of surprises! He still loves Dude Perfect, so this t-shirt was pretty cool! He also got the games Clue and Stratego (we have played both a ton already) and new video game to enjoy.
Brooklyn really wanted a Polaroid camera! She was thrilled to find this one under the tree for her! She also got a mermaid tail blanket, a new softball bag, and a few girlie gifts like make-up and nail stickers:)
Parker didn't have a long Christmas wish list either, but he ended up getting some special things! He got Monopoly Jr., batting gloves, police handcuffs, and some new Charlotte Hornets gear!
Emery LOVED opening her gifts! She would tear one open and then be ready for the next!
She wanted two special things from Santa this year and she got both! She really wanted a new baby doll stroller and a Barbie fishing pole! She also got a Peppa Pig puzzle and art book and a new seek and find book:)
We also got the kids a few family gifts for us to enjoy throughout the year!
Can't wait to cash those in!
After we unwrapped everything we got ready for Poppa and Memaw to come over. We always have them over for Christmas breakfast.
We exchanged gifts, ate breakfast, played games, and built a gingerbread house together!
"Christmas is the Son of God expressing the love of God to save us from the wrath of God so we could enjoy the presence of God."
Merry Christmas 2017
