"Our Christmas"

We celebrated our Christmas on Christmas Eve...rather spontaneously. 
We had worked longer than anticipated on the kitchen project (hmm..that happens). But following supper and in between leaving for the Christmas Eve service at church...

Christian was so excited and genuinely thrilled with each gift. 
The dollar bin calendar he received from Noah was first...oh boy! 
"YES!!!! NOAH!! This is what I've always wanted. I just LOVE it! Thank you Noah. Thank you!!!!"
Followed by a hug that knocked him over!

Noah didn't really care one way or another. He was fine with tearing a few pieces..but nothing crazy.

 Ben and his new paint brush. 
He is quite particular about his paint brushes :)

 Noah did get excited about his light up, singing book. He LOVES lights...and win win!

And lastly, Christian opened his remote control monster truck (which he helped me pick out!) 
Oh he was so happy.

We finished up our Christmas..and went to church...where we saw Carissa & Tim and family!! They got in late afternoon. So we went over to Mom and Dad's for a bit after church then came home so we could be well rested for Christmas!

In the morning, we opened up a few presents that Great Grandpa and Grandma Hershberger sent home with us from church. *We were supposed to have the Hershberger Christmas on the 21st...but due to snow and sickness, it was rescheduled for the 28th..which we will be celebrating in Topeka during that time. 

Christian was so impressed with his light up penguin pin! 

And since we didn't have a family picture of us at our own Christmas...
this was taken on Christmas Day. Difficult to get everyone looking nice during the same picture...I'm sure no one else has that problem :)
