A Simple {Christmas}

Christmas this year was simple and beautiful. So much time with family, relaxing, food, and more.

One highlight this year was Braden's extended family party - we did the spiritual thought and put together bookmarks for people to answer "My gift to Christ is..." I thought about this again and again for weeks. I want to think about what I am giving back to Christ year round, for he has given us the greatest gift of the gospel and eternal life. 


We had our traditional Christmas Eve party at my mom's house, mostly to celebrate my Grandpa's 85th birthday. It's always so fun and so happy.

Then the Christmas Eve tradition of opening up some jammies!


And Christmas morning came...

^ This gift was definitely the highlight, from Avee to Braden. The cutest doll ever (definite sarcasm...talk about creepy).

And of course our Christmas Day was the very best because we got to Skype with my cute sister missionary in Guatemala! She is doing so well and we are so proud of her.

Christmastime is truly the very best - to spend time with family and reflect on all the many gifts Christ has given us.
