Christmas 2009

We had a really great Christmas season this year. The calm, peaceful, quiet experience was such a contrast to last year's crazy adventure. The twins have added so much to our joy. We've spent a lot of quiet evenings at home all together reading Christmas stories, singing carols, and dancing to Christmas music. We celebrate Christmas Eve with an enchilada dinner and a family performance of the nativity. Sadly, Kelly was sick with food poisoning all day on Christmas Eve but by Christmas morning was much better. We've saved him some enchiladas for later.
This year's nativity was one of the cutest things I've ever seen. I'll put a clip from it on here so you can see who I think are the most adorable Mary, Joseph, and Angel ever cast in a nativity. The camera man was queasy-sorry if his filming makes you feel the same. The donkey was a little sheepish about being filmed but it was necessary.
Christmas morning was a joy. The twins couldn't believe it when we handed them presents and encouraged them to tear open the wrapping paper. We've been shooing them away from the tree and presents all month. They were happy to get gifts but really wished we'd just let them eat the paper. All the Christmas morning pics are on Kelly's camera. I'll try to get them uploaded soon.
