A Very Merry White Christmas

The snow started sometime Christmas Eve afternoon and did not stop until sometime early Christmas Morning. It was a very beautiful COLD morning this morning.

We woke up at 5:45 to get ready and go over to my parents house. We had to be there by 7 because my siblings have a very hard time waiting to see what Santa brought (as I'm sure most kids have the same problem). From the time we left the Apartment until the time he fell asleep on me after presents, Jarren was wide awake from excitement. Aunts and Uncles screaming with joy, and giving him lots of crinkly wrapping paper to shove in his mouth. He got to be held by his Grandma Hunt for the first time in 2 1/2 weeks and was so excited he gave her a hug!

Out of all of Jarren's Christmas gifts I believe the wrapping paper was his favorite. His second favorite would probably be the Hokey-Pokey Elmo. And then his new playmat. We still haven't put together a few of his new presents so his favorites might change.

Jake was a very spoiled man this year. But he deserves it so I went all out. He got a Wii (which his brother helped me pay for...thanks Rob!) and a bunch of games to go with it. Jake got me a new ipod shuffle, and Rob got me the armband case to put it in so I can use it while I work out! I'm so excited. After all of the presents and a very exhausting morning, I started dinner. (yep...we had our OWN dinner this year) and took a nap. Then I woke up and finished dinner. We had a very good ham. After dinner was over we went to the movies and watched Alvin and the Chipmonks. It was a pretty funny movie, we enjoyed it and laughed a lot.
This was one of the best Christmas's in a long time. Having Jarren with us this year made it even better. We love him and are so thankful that he is in our family. We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and was able to feel the love our Savior has for you.
Love you all! Merry Christmas!
