A peak into our Christmas Day

Our Christmas Day was filled with love, laughter and kisses.
Just the way a Christmas Day should be.
Coming down the stairs and seeing Ryan's reaction Christmas morning was so priceless.
Aaron and I were in heaven.

The cookies were gone, and our stockings was full.
We must have been a really good kids this year ;)

It started snowing in the early Christmas morning hours and snowed ALL. DAY. LONG.
It was the White Christmas we crossed our fingers for and it was perfect.

Ryan made his first snowman and got his first face plant white wash in the snow.
It was awesome.

Lots of games, an incredible turkey dinner, ( my mom is the cook of all cooks ) and cuddling up to a Christmas movie made for the perfect Christmas night.

Most of all, we remembered our sweet sweet Savior and the meaning of Christmas Day.

Ryan woke up the next morning asking if Santa came AGAIN.
He wanted to do it all over again.
Me too buddy ... me too.

Until next year Christmas! We miss you already!
