Merry Christmas

We had such a wonderful Christmas holiday. We spent Christmas Eve at my parents and attended the Candle Light Service at their church.  We enjoyed a wonderful lunch together as well.  We stayed the night and woke to a wonderful ham breakfast.  We got to have Christmas dinner with Dave's parents.  Aaron enjoyed opening his gifts and stocking.  I got a couple fun gifts too. 

Dave and I got new luggage for the family-a couple of these great duffels.




These amazing boots




I put some of Dave's favorite candies in his stocking, soft socks and a basketball book he wanted. 
In my stocking I added these soft socks.
