Jared's birthday is the day before Christmas Eve, which means it can easily get mushed into everything else. So I was thinking it would be fun to get away and go to a nice hotel to celebrate. Jared didn't think that was such a good idea. Instead he wanted to go laser tagging. So we went with my family and it was so much fun! It was pretty hilarious. I think my mom only shot about 4 people in the entire hour. I was the MVP for my team! I guess I have some secret skills. It was just us in the whole place with one other birthday party. The birthday boy was 10.
It was such a fun day. I love this boy so much! Sharing our lives together is so much fun!
On Christmas Eve we always go to my Aunt Dicksy's house for a party. It's so great to get together with everybody!
We started the night off with our traditional bingo game with awesome prizes.
My Mom led all the kids in some Christmas songs with the bells. The kids loved it.
Jordan and Carston being the Innkeeper and Joseph in the Nativity play. Carston even memorized his part!
Jared being the donkey.
Singing some Christmas Hymns on Christmas morning before we open presents. I love this tradition.
Two very excited girls!
Jared and me on Christmas morning.
I told Jared all I wanted for Christmas was for him to give me one of his ugly shirts. Does that make me an awful wife? He gave it to me and I cut it up. Good riddance.
This year for Christmas my sister Natalie made my mom a headboard and we got her bedding to go with it. She hasn't had a headboard since forever. I love her reaction! She is so fun to buy for because she is so appreciative! We love you Mom and Dad!
