Happy Birthday Jesus!

I am taking the week off.......from blogging, not from mommyhood:)
After this weekend of two big family Christmas get-togethers I am pooped!
Above is a pic of my husbands side of the fam playing their annual football game.
Below was the childrens' gift exchange, it was really cute to see them giving gifts.

On Saturday we drove to Pine Mountain Lake, which is near Yosemite, and visited with my side of the fam.
Below is a pic of us with my dad and step-mama.

There were 10 kids under 5 years of age, so it was very busy.
The kiddos stayed busy playing outside.
We had such a great time at both places.
But boy are my arms tired...wait that saying doesn't really apply hear, but they are:)
I pray that you all have a very Merry Christmas.
I leave you with a little bit of the Christmas story, read from Matt's brother Mark.
