Merry Christmas

Our Christmas was so much fun this year! This picture was taken at the annual McGee Christmas Eve Potluck. Every Christmas Eve goes something like this: Potluck, Nativity (with the help of all the grandchildren) and singing carols, PJ's, and PJ Pyramid Pictures. PJ Pyramid Pictures is my favorite part! We used to be a small enough family that we could have a pyramid with the entire family. But all of the sudden three more kids got married and now we have to do a sibling picture and separate family pictures.

This was Christmas Morning. Well, really the mess afterwards. Leah absolutely loved the rocking chair that her cousin, Maddie, handed down to her and although she isn't sitting in it in this picture we've pretty much had to pry Leah to get out of it since.

Later that morning we went to Matt's parent's house and had lunch and watched movies with his family. Afterwards, we headed over to my parent's house for dinner and an evening of games. It was so much fun to watch Leah opening her presents. It's amazing how in one year, our little immobile baby has come so far and really developed her own personality.

Christmas really is such a wonderful time of the year. We feel so blessed to live lives of such comfort and are so thankful for all of our friends and family.

I LOVE that song! Stephen Speaks is a great band. If you like 'Out of My League" you like the song "Passenger Seat" too. And, conveniently, it is also on my song list for your listening enjoyment! We missed you guys too. Hope you had a great holiday!
