We had the sweetest, most low-key Christmas this year. We focused on connecting as a family as we celebrated the joy of Christ's birth.
On the morning of Christmas Eve, each kiddo opened one present. The bigs received gifts that kept them busy all day - a lego for Collin and a kitchen for Lauren.
We went to church in Sturgis, and then came home to spend the evening alone together. 5 out of 6 look pleasant... that's the best we could ask for.
We started a sweet new tradition this year. A few nights before Christmas we took the gang to the bookstore, and each person picked a book for every other person in our family. After church on Christmas Eve, we unwrapped all the books and spent the entire evening enjoying them.
Merry Christmas Eve, indeed.
