Christmas 08 - part 2

This year we decided to extend our time at home between our visits to our families to include all of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. There are several reasons for this decision: 1) our church has Christmas Eve and Christmas morning services that we didn't want to miss 2) we needed time to repack and recuperate. It is so much harder to do the turn around when you are pregnant and have a 10 month old! 3) we wanted to start creating some of our own family traditions. (More on this in a later post)

After a good night sleep in our own beds we headed to church Christmas morning before coming home to open stockings and enjoy a brunch of Congo bacon and waffles!

The rest of the day was pretty relaxing. We didn't do as much as we had planned to due to recuperating from our bout with the flu. We did try to teach Magnolia how to use her new crayons without much success. I attempted to use one of her new barrettes, also without much success. She had a great day playing with all of her new toys.

I got to make our family's first Christmas dinner: standing rib roast, white corn saute, baked potatoes, and salad. All in all it was a wonderful, relaxing Christmas Day.

Your Christmas sounds a lot like ours. Well, at least the Canucks game with wii during intermissions. I'm having fun seeing Maggie experience Christmas in pictures and imagine us in your place next year.
