Merry Christmas!

We had a wonderful, relaxing Christmas, and we hope you did too!

We snapped these pictures as we went to church on Christmas Eve.  

This morning, the boys were so excited to see that Santa had left them candy canes!  They have been crazy about candy canes, and they liked the way that Santa hung candy canes on our stockings.  

In addition to the candy cane, Santa brought Isaac sparkly stickers and special marker/paint brushes.  He couldn't have been happier.

Noah said, "Santa got my order right!" as he opened up his gifts to see that he got the winter stickers and peppermint tea that he asked for.  They both had simple requests for Santa, and they would have sincerely been happy if that was all they received, but there was more...

In addition to a bounty of gifts from friends and family, they followed their strings to find their "big" gifts...

Isaac found a play kitchen, and this was our view of him for most of the rest of the day as he "cooked" delicious food for us.

Noah found a drum set, which completely surprised and delighted him.

This was our view of him for the rest of the day.  Isaac used a pretend microphone and guitar and the two of them instantly created a band.

We ended the day with a video call with our family in Arizona and birthday cake to celebrate Jesus's birthday.  
Happy Birthday, Jesus!

Here's more Christmas pictures.
