Christmas Is For the Little Ones

We drove over to Aurora, MO yesterday for Christmas at Mark & Stephanie's (number two son). We were an even dozen...Mark & Stephanie; Steph's mother, Kathy, and brother, Tim; their daughter Ashley & husband Bart and their sons Jeramiah and Maison; their daughter Caitlin and fiance Lucas; Tom and I.

We had good food, good company and the joy of watching Christmas through the eyes of the little ones.

My favorite picture of the day. When you ask Jeramiah and Masion to poise for a picture together they automatically lock into a hug. Let's hope this brotherly love will continue all of their lives.

Jeramiah tried so HARD to be patient waiting to open presents.

Maison got excited just seeing boxes, so he was thrilled when they had stuff inside too!

Grandpa and Grandma Mark & Stephanie have the most fun I think.

The boys seemed to genuinely like the pillowcases Great-Grandma Mary made them

And I hope the tablerunners/mats were enjoyed.

Now I want to know who these old people are that were seen out on Christmas Eve before church?

I got a new camera but I hate reading manuals!

Hope your Christmas was wonderful too!
