and Christmas came

A favorite holiday that goes by too fast with family and friends and too much food and gifts. But I love it. 

We enjoyed the traditional food spread. 

We always read the Christmas Story, The Newborn King, from the same book every year making it a Christmas tradition. 

The adults draw names and and we pass around the gifts with ooh's and ahh's and some haha's. And the little kids are loaded up with gifts too. The little ones wanted to play santa and pass out the gifts to everyone. It was sweet they wanted to "give" the gifts out. That may we'll be a new tradition. 

It's more than just about the gifts. The reason why we give gifts. Jesus is the reason for the season.
