Christmas at Home & in NC

Thursday afternoon was our "Christmas Eve". 

The four of us rode around and looked at Christmas lights.

We also drank shakes and ate french fries.

Then we returned home to snack some more and open the gifts 
under the tree from family and one to another.

Friday morning, we were up and early on our way. 
We drove to Milwaukee and flew to NC, lickety split! 
We were settled and in the hot tub by about 3p their time.

Saturday was the real Christmas Eve, and we had snacks and opened gifts. 

It was a good family bonding night. 
After we opened gifts we all cuddled on the couch 
to watch the video Zeek made for his gift to family.

It was SO good and funny. 

The cooking shows, commercials, infomercials, public service announcements,
and songs made for some great entertainment!

Then we sat together while Zeek read us the book 
that Gra made him of our last visit here.

We sang Happy Birthday to Jesus and broke into Gra's 
amazing homemade carrot cake (which you helped make).

Sunday morning, we all went to church together. 
Then we made another Thanksgiving feast! 
Pepere deep fried the turkey, Zeek shaved the carrots, 

You skinned the potatoes, and helped Zeek cut them up. 

Gra did all the rest. :)

There were so many celebrations. 
So many days and events of feasting and gift exchange, 
Christmas music, and warm gatherings with our closest friends and family. 
I couldn't have hoped for a better way to commemorate 
the sacrifice God made in sending His Son as a baby for all of us. 

It was a Merry Merry Christmas!!! :)
