Christmas Day 2016

This was the first Christmas in a LONG time where we didn't have visitors or weren't traveling somewhere to be visitors.

And while we missed our awesome family scattered all over the place - it was kind of nice to just be chilling here!

The goofballs woke up to a string of colored lights leading them upstairs...

Where Colorado had surprised us with a beautiful white Christmas!

It was so fun to just relax together as a family and watch their joy and excitement "unwrap" on the couch!

There were new pajamas that got lived in ALL day...

There was this cutie in her new winter hat!

We headed out to deliver some cookies we made to people who had to work today...

We hit our local fire station and thanked them for working and protecting us... and then hit Starbucks to share some love with our favorite Baristas on the planet!

And they returned the favor with "whatever drinks you guys all want" on the house!

At dinner time - we talked a lot about Jesus and why He did what He did for us - lots of deep, good questions coming at me and it was great conversation!

As we talked about another little baby who was born - emotions ran kinda high as we all got to love on Zechie as he is processing the difficult hurt of Brighton dying at such a young age.

His beautiful little heart is wrestling with it all and we just tried to encourage him to listen for God in the midst of the hurt.

Not long after that - sleep won!

It's hard work jus hanging out all day and having fun!

It was a beautiful day... and we hope the rest of the world had as great of a Christmas as we did!

Merry Christmas to all... and to all a good night!
