I love Christmas!  I love the reason we celebrate the season and how God loves us so much that He sent Christ to us as a baby and every year we celebrate His birth. Living apart right now made it a little more difficult to get things set up for Christmas but as soon as we got to our new house with Derin, we set up our Christmas tree.  Michael had so much fun putting on the Christmas lights.  Every morning he would go into the living room and ask me to turn on the Christmas lights!IMG_0554IMG_0553Christmas morning was fabulous.  I woke up earlier than the babies (they enjoyed sleeping in every day) and made our traditional cinnamon rolls (thanks Nana) and then Derin and I woke our babies.  We told Michael Santa had come to visit and he was so excited to go and see the tree and his presents.  IMG_0126IMG_0125IMG_0128IMG_0129IMG_0131After a morning of presents and cinnamon rolls, we all rested and got ready for dinner with Nana and PawPaw.  It was fabulous and the cake my mom made was amazing.  After we ate it was time for round three of Christmas gifts and then Michael’s favorite: Cars 2.  PawPaw brought the projector and we watched Cars 2 all snuggled up while the movie was the size of our living room wall!IMG_0169 IMG_0153IMG_0175 IMG_0194 IMG_0182 IMG_0183 IMG_0187 984977838212 964977838212 275387838212775387838212 508397838212After baths and kisses Nana and PawPaw went home and it was time to say goodnight.  We continued on with our traditions by reading “The Christmas Spirit” by Nancy Tillman.  It is my absolute favorite Christmas book, even more than “The Night Before Christmas”.  I think her book states it best and no matter how many times I read it, especially to my babies, it always makes me cry :

The best part of Christmas will always be…you beneath my Christmas tree”
