Christmas is our favorite holiday because we are surrounded by people we love. This Christmas it was no different. We started our festivities with a tour of Ward Hall, Southern Lights, and a visit to Santa.
- Then our extended family activities starts out at Michael's mom's house for Christmas Eve,
- back to our house to get ready for Santa the next morning,
- after gifts are opened then we head over to Michael's brother's house for a big family breakfast.
- Finally, we load up and go to my parents house where we help prepare our Christmas dinner. We are so blessed to have such a supprtive group of people around us all the time.
