Christmas with our families

We had a busy, but very nice couple days around Christmas with our families. I forgot my camera for the Christmas Eve get together with my extended family at my mom's, which was very sad because everything looked so beautiful and it would've been really great to get some pictures! Here's the pictures from Christmas morning with my parents, Christmas afternoon at Eric & Wendy's, and the day after Christmas at DeWayne & Ruth's.
The girls LOVED helping Papa open his gifts. ;)

Barbie Roller Skates!

Ruth played some Christmas songs for us after dinner! :)

The girls loved their new lip gloss!

They love looking at the blocks that spell out Merry Christmas.

3rd Neighborhood Christmas Party

We were able to host our 3rd neighborhood Christmas party this year! ...and have it outside still even though it had been raining all day because the rain stopped about an hour before the party started. What a sweet answer to prayer that was! We had a lot of fun catching up with neighbors we've met over the last few years and meeting a couple new neighbors.
