To see what our Homemade Present tradition is, click here for the first post.
After we opened our Homemade Christmas presents, we also opened the rest of the presents under the tree. Another tradition the girls love is handing out the presents one at a time. Then we all open one present at the same time, then go around the room and show everyone what they got. This year I think was a really great Christmas. They got almost everything on their list and I was, for the first time, not nervous they were going to be disappointed.
I didn't catch very many pictures, but here are a few. There's a video about 3 pictures down, which is of the big present we're getting them this year. We couldn't get a real one because of other circumstances, so we'll have to look in the next few weeks.
One of my favorite moments was when Jenni's mother asked us to sing. We weren't prepared so we just sort of sat down playing through Christmas songs. We didn't sing anything as a performance, we just sort of sang at the piano. We had such a great time, a lot of laughs and a ton of Christmas Spirit. One of my favorite Christmases for sure.
Christmas Movie Night
One of our long-standing family Christmas traditions is to go to the movies on Christmas Day. We left the Bushman's house to go to the movies on base. The only movie was Walking with Dinosaurs in 3-D, one that Spencer has been counting down the days to see. The girls reluctantly joined us but it was a fun family night.
What a great Christmas!!! I love our little family!
