This Christmas was our first "just us" Christmas. It was a cozy and relaxed day.
Here is our little tree!
Apparently, I cut off the top of tree's heads as well as people's.
Charissa's fat stocking, lovingly crochet by her Great-Grandma Zeller.
MERRY FIRST CHRISTMAS, BRANDT!!!
Charissa got a recorder in her stocking.
It was a hit in the figurative sense and also literally to my eardrums.
Her main present was the Cooking & Dining Set from GreenToys.com.
They are made out of recycled milk jugs. How cool is that?
She immediately made me soup seasoned with salt & pepper
while Doug was served chicken and rolls.
Brandt's present was a dump truck, also from GreenToys.
Currently, I'm pretty sure Charissa enjoys it more.
See her purple ball hopper?
That's been an alternating source of great joy and injury.
Brandt just wanted to hang out with Daddy.
We read the Christmas story and watched The Nativity.
What a simple and blessed day with my favorite people!
"For to us a Child is Born, to us a Son is given,
and the government will be on His shoulders.
And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."
Hope you all had a joyous Christmas celebrating the True Gift!
