Christmas in Kentucky

This year we decided that a trip home for Christmas, just didn't sound all that fun. The airports are nuts, people are grouchy, germs are everywhere and the kids get so far off schedule that they are cranky little stinkers, so we stayed in Kentucky. I had mixed feelings at the time, but I am glad that we got to stay home and just enjoy each other.

Christmas eve started off with Santa and Reindeer pancakes, bacon and fruit. Then it was off to the church for dodge ball and volleyball with some friends that were also hanging around during the break.

That evening, we had the Millars over for some intense gingerbread house making and decorating. I wish I had a picture of Drew's mansion complete with cobble stone driveway and stone wall. Bryce made a stable with horses. Some of the best houses I have seen yet!After the Millars left, Brynlee helped put out the reindeer food. She kept saying, "I hope the reindeer like oatmeal."

Before we read the night before Christmas and tucked Brynlee into bed, we also decorated some cookies for Santa.

Christmas morning is always my favorite! Christmas is so much better when you are the mom. It is exhausting, but so worth it. I love to watch the kids so excited to see what Santa brought for them. Logan didn't really know what was going on but he was really happy anyway. Brynlee was thrilled! She loved handing out all the presents and gushed over everyone she opened. It was a good morning. After all the presents were unwrapped we filled our bellies with warm Monkey Bread, we headed to church. What a great way to spend Christmas! We missed our family terribly and skyped them to show off all the kids loot, but it was so relaxing and nice to spend time with our family.
The only down fall was that Bryce had to take his written boards on the 27th of December so several hours of his day were dedicated to studying for that. LAME! But he passed so YAY!
