Holidays a month later

The holidays have come and gone and it's been a month, guess I am a little behind, eh. After the feet of snow we enjoyed a wonderful white Christmas at home. It was a true blessing being able to be home and not go anywhere. Don't get me wrong we LOVE our families
it was just nice to have a holiday with our little family. It was a joy to talk to Alyse about Jesus Birthday and everywhere we saw the manger she would get excited and say "ahhh, baby Jesus is sleepin in the hay". Baby Jesus had many kisses and hugs! She loved learning Christmas Carols "Hark the Heard Angels sing" and "Away in the manger" were
quickly learned and sang over and over. It was a fun Christmas because of the excitement of understanding the meaning. Along with Jesus birthday we did talk about Santa and that opened a crazy can of worms! Thanks to skype we were able to spend moments with the family!

The day after Christmas we ventured up to PA for Christmas with the Habeckers. Alyse really enjoys her cousins and couldn't stop talking about going to YaYa and PaPa's house. We also attended YaYa's family reunion which was held in a fire house. This meant many trips to see the trucks and not much eating. Our families and friends overwhelmed us with many fun great gifts this holiday and we have many thanks to everyone!
