Christmas 2015 - Part one

This has been a wonderful year for us. The kids are healthy, happy, doing well in school, and sports, Grant's business is going extremely well, I'm feeling great after having our baby, and Scarlett is healthy, and just darling. It was great ending this year with the majority of my family (missed my dad and brother), and Grant's family (Grant's dad and step mom coming this week). We certainly felt loved, and happy. Thank you for all making this time special for us. 

I wanted to start out this blog with what we did leading up to Christmas, Christmas Eve, and Christmas morning. My next blog will be after Christmas until New Years. Let's start with some pictures. :)

Scarlett's photographer did a small separate shoot with us and she got some incredible shots of Scarlett and Scarlett and I. I will treasure those pictures forever. Thank you Juls Megill! Here is one from the shoot. 
Asher's preschool had their annual Christmas play. Like usual it was adorable. Asher looked like he wanted to fall asleep at certain points though. Guess that's what happens when it starts at 7pm. They all looked adorable. Grant was traveling, so he wasn't able to watch the silly kids. My aunt and uncle came to support Asher. I left Scarlett home with Amelia. Too many people for a newborn to be around.
 Asher's teacher. Mrs. Muesse. We love her so!
 Walking out the door. Picture with Santa also. ;)
Asher's preschool had jammie day. If you know Asher, you know he LOVES his jammies. This is his favorite day of the fall/winter! It was also his teachers birthday. So, it was a double win day.
My aunt rented a suite for us at Disney on ICE again this year. This year the theme was Frozen! Super cool! My aunt and uncle are the best. I'm so lucky I have them in my life. My cousin Laurie and her adorable son Isaiah also go. It's so great seeing her and her growing family.
I was able to invite my neighbor and her daughter Emma. Apparently they're boyfriend and girlfriend.
The Peters family invited us to their family Holiday party. Jake and Asher got to meet "the big guy" and tell him all that they want for Christmas. Thank you for inviting us! The boys certainly had a great time. Such sweet friends we have. :)
The kiddos.
 Katy's annual Christmas party.
Christmas Eve.
Christmas morning!
Added a new stocking this year. :)
 Opening presents is so fun!
The big kids are happier to do it with Starbucks. 
Then we had our annual Christmas breakfast with my aunt, uncle, and cousins. I look forward to this more than presents. I love getting our family together like this. Makes me so incredibly happy! My aunt and uncle come over with food, spirits, and lots of laughter. It's the best!
