After spending quality time together as a family at home, we bundled everyone up and headed over to my parents' house to celebrate Christmas with my parents and sister. Look at these pictures and you'll understand why my husband and I have yet to buy our kids Christmas presents - ever (not to mention the loot the kids scored from Matt's side of the family - oh.my.spoiled.)

Does it get much better than Christmas morning?
Christmas morning 2010 did not disappoint. We woke up and began a new tradition, one my precious husband insisted on. Before breakfast or presents, Matt read the story of Jesus' birth from the book of Matthew. I attempted to capture the moment using my iPhone, but as lighting and sound would have it, the quality is poor. As you can tell from the video, next year we might want to serve the kids breakfast before reading from the Bible.
After presents, we were blessed to have our dear friends, the Martins, join us for brunch. Amy, Billy, and their adorable son, Gregory, were to host Billy's parents for Christmas but Billy's stepmom ended up in surgery just days before due to a very broken ankle!
Thank you, Lord, for another year of blessings. I cannot stop praising you for the beauty I am surrounded by everyday.
