Christmas Day

Well, I will go ahead and apologize that this post will be low on pictures.  My absent minded head left my camera at home, but I was able to steal borrow some from my sister-in-law’s Facebook album.

After the excitement of Christmas morning, we had breakfast and then got ready to go to Jeremy’s parents to celebrate Christmas day.  We had a lot of fun there!  Kathy prepared a wonderful meal.  We are so lucky to have so may wonderful cooks in our family.  After lunch, Mikayla did a little impromptu performance of the Christmas story and then we opened our presents.  The kids had a blast!

Ashley had some friends of her there to celebrate with us, so we were able to get a family picture.  That was a special treat!

Sadly, after all of the fun we had to go home so that I could go to work.  I shouldn’t complain, though.  Thanks to the ability to trade and maternity leaves, this is the first time in 10 years of being a nurse that I have ever had to work Christmas day.  Also, I didn’t have to start until 7pm, so I was still able to enjoy the bulk of the day with my family.   That was the best part!
