Since we were navigating Saturday Christmas Eve services, and a Sunday am service, we decided to celebrate our family Christmas on Friday. Bright-eyed and ready to go!
Side note: This was a gift (a turtle candle) Joshua purchased for me using some very hard-earned shekels from Shekel Shack through Sparks. Very special indeed! Means more than any store-bought gift every could!
Daddy opening K's gift she made at preschool.
Tyler opening his big dump truck . . . although I think he was perfectly satisfied with his 5-inch fire truck -- with lots of buttons, of course!
Funny story -- half way through our gift-wrapping session, Bryan scampered off to the coat closet (see in background). He had "forgotten" to wrap my gift (which was hidden in the light bulb box) and so he grabbed some used paper from one of the kid's gift, went to retrieve the gift, "wrapped" it again, and gave it to me. So sweet:) (too bad he forgot to remove the original tag!) We both had a good laugh!
