Our tree.
This is at "MiMi's" house Christmas Eve. Savannah started giving people presents, so Mimi said she could be santa & put the hat on her. Savannah was proud of getting to be the one to give out presents. Really, she didn't give us an opportunity to object. :-)

Isaac loved his truck. And his BOOTS. He kept pointing at them and saying "Ma, my boots!" He has a little bit of a stutter at times. It was so cute!
This was a funny moment. This was Christmas morning at our house, and Isaac discovered his stocking was shaped like a boot. "Mama, it's ah a BOOT!" Forget the presents, this is the important stuff ;)

Savannah was still sleepy, but she managed a smile. Unfortunately, I didn't get many pics of them opening presents!!! And I didn't get any pics at my Mama's house later today! I will have to get some from my sisters. I did, however, get these pics of them on the way home. :)

Some pics of different ornaments:
Nearly every ornament has something "special" about it, so I am posting a few pics of them. My hubby gives me a new ornament every year, since he knows how much I love decorating for Christmas, and he is so thoughtful. :) This is the ornament he gave me our first Christmas. (above)

I got this one when we were first married also. I like it because it is so "folksy".
Joe made this when he was 5 yrs old.

He gave me 2 ornaments this year. This is one of them. The hand painted ones are so old-fashioned looking, which I really like!

This is the other one. I love blown glass!

This is what I did when we got home. Relaxed with eggnog latte, chocolate, and a new book.

I hope everyone had a great day! MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Luke 2:10-11: But the angel said to them "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord."

I can't find the jump drive that Daniel saved our Christmas tree pictures on. I hope I still have it.

Your pictures are so much fun. I love Isaac's expression with his boot stocking, and Savannah with the Santa hat. :)
