Christmas 2013

I think this may have been my favorite Christmas. We had all of our families close, and I wasn’t sick this year. ;) We are feeling immensely blessed and thankful.

Here’s a glimpse into our holiday celebrations. :)

Jackers was a trooper for a quick family portrait before we headed out to our church’s Christmas Eve service.

It’s my favorite service of the year!

After the service, we headed to my in-laws for dinner and presents.

We got both of our dads these cute mugs “from Jack.” :)

C044

We each opened a gift on Christmas Eve and fell asleep watching The Santa Clause. Christmas morning, we woke up early to have our little family Christmas. :)

Jack was so excited. ;)

I adore these faces.

I don’t have many pictures of our gifts, but Andrew and I both did really good this year. :)

We headed to Mom’s for Christmas morning breakfast. Poor Mom wasn’t feeling good, but she insisted we all still feast on pancakes and bacon! (And feast we did.)

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is Dad reading from Luke 2 after breakfast.

When we finished opening an absurd amount of presents at Mom and Dad’s, we headed to Aunt Laney’s to celebrate with Andrew’s side of the family.

Including sweet Bear.

And darling baby Keaton.

I love this family!

Our next stop was the Wiley household Christmas to celebrate with the rest of my family. The cousins got some pretty awesome presents. ;)

I love this group SO MUCH. 

C206

To finish the day, we had both of our immediate families over for a final Christmas celebration and a not-so-friendly game of Taboo. ;) (P.S. Taboo has taken over as my favorite game…I’m obsessed and far too competitive.)

Jackers spread some Christmas love and cheer.

And to all, a goodnight. ;)
