Merry Christmas

We celebrated Christmas at home in MN this year.  All of the Krumps were in town, so we were lucky enough to hang out over at Oma & Opa's for the majority of the time.  It was a relaxing few days, which was perfect.

Christmas Eve by the (real) Christmas tree.  

Lydia and Opa, reading Brown Bear, Brown Bear.  

Old Papa made the trip down from Grand Forks!  He's so sweet to these kiddos.  

Henry and Lydia left out cookies and milk for Santa, along with celery for the reindeer.  We were out of carrots, so Henry thought celery was a good substitute.  He made sure to leave Santa a note so he knew who the celery was actually for :)

Sonja gave the kids these great snack cups - they love them, along with those Christmas jammies!

Henry actually wanted to wait for Lydia to come downstairs on Christmas morning, pretty impressive if you ask me.  Henry got his Hot Wheels volcano and Lydia got her purple footie jammies, yay!  We went to church on Christmas morning, a packed house for sure, and then off to Oma & Opa's for the day.  

Here's everybody - the Krumps, the Gillespies, and the Richters :)
No smiles from Henry.  He was being quite the pill that morning for pictures :(  His behavior was so extremely good on Christmas Eve (in preparation for Santa that evening, I'm guessing), that he must have used it all up and had nothing left for Christmas Day, ha!

All in all, a very Merry Christmas it was :)

  1. It was so much fun having everyone together this year. What a great Christmas! Old Papa can't quit talking about all of the little ones, and what great parents they have.
