Our Christmas... for those that would have loved to be here!

Just thought I'd share our Christmas with you all. Thinking mostly of our parents, who I'm sure would love to see the reactions! I'm so glad we kept things simple this year, and didn't overwhelm the kids with too many gifts. It's so hard to get them to focus on the real reason for Christmas when all they are thinking about is gifts! But Rowan seems to know what Christmas is about, and eventually Bria will learn too. It's so much fun making memories!

Looks like they got a lot of great things for Christmas! Hope you have a great season together!
