Our very fun homemade Christmas

I wanted to post some pics of our Christmas Day and visit with Sam's parents.  I also can't say enough of how much they blessed us with their visit.  As previously stated, they brought our rocking chair and our bed frame and even our baby car seat and then even went to Lowe's and we got some boards to make a platform and then came back and fixed up our bed.  Then, Don got the window up on the van and he got the door open!!  What amazing generosity and blessing!!!!!!!!  Laura helped me with all of the food and took over with the boys several times and just generally loved on us.  What a big heart she has!!!  Even though I am very tired, I am so glad they came.  It was such a wonderful visit!  Plus, they were so willing to take Braden and meet my mom so that she could have some time with him during the holidays.  Amazing!  Thank you so much, Meemaw and Peepaw, for your loving and giving hearts!!!

I've also taken pictures of the our Christmas tree and the opening of presents on Christmas Day and the socks and ornaments I got from my wonderful partners in the swaps.  Enjoy!

Before the unwrapping began...
Sam reading the Christmas story
Zekey sitting still while listening to the Christmas story.
We were reading about Jesus' birth.
Meemaw, Peepaw and some very silly boys.
Braden got a book about the body from Granny and the skeleton puzzle was actually his size.
Zekey did start catching on to the process of unwrapping pretty quickly.
My mom got Braden a Joshua the Warrior set and it was a big hit:)

Zekey didn't get the whole dig into the stocking for the surprises, but I bet he will know better next year!

Yellowbuttercup sent me these ornaments.  Aren't they so pretty?  They are made by ladies in India as a way to make a living.  I love stuff like that!
Thanks, Vanilla, for the socks and the ornament!  Love them!!
Our Happy Birthday, Jesus! double layer cookie cake.  It was super yummy, too!:)
