Merry Christmas.

Good morning, is it Christmas!  Merry Christmas!

Yesterday we headed over to the Ostergard's house for our family Christmas Eve fun.
 Right away Jack and Hansen started having fun.  Good times with cousins for sure.
 Grandpa John and Preston...who is taller now?  I'm thinking Grandpa may be standing on his tip toes for this picture?
 Julian (me) and Maren.
 Lillie and her cousin Avery.  Here they are in the basement at the Ostergard's house where they have converted Maren's old room into a little girl get-away.
 Our little family posing in front of the tree.  All the families got pictures taken.
 Preston having fun opening presents with his cousin Abbi.  It sure is great that Preston has cousins his own age now!
After dinner we, along with John and Carol, went to the 7:30 service at church.  This is one of our favorite service of the entire year.  We got to hear Kevin H. sing (he is amazing but we only hear him on Christmas Eve.) and the whole congregation sings Silent Night while holding candles with the lights dimmed.  It is very cool.  

Last night while we were all asleep Santa came to our house!  And left some very nice gifts for all of us.  

In a couple of hours we will head over to Jack and Avery's house to have more Christmas fun and enjoy some left over meatballs from last night.  Yum!

Merry Christmas everyone!

See you tomorrow.
