Christmas in Washington

This year we spent Christmas in Washington in our brand new house.  Our first Christmas just our little family of six.  It was simple, relaxed and casual.  Just like us.

Christmas Eve I made a huge ham and potatoes dinner, and we had lots of sparkling apple cider to the kiddos delight.  That evening they each got to open one present (jammies). They were super excited about their new jammies, which cracked Dave and I up.  It probably helps that this is the first year I've let them open one present early, but their surprise and excitement made it worth the wait.

Christmas morning was filled with opening presents, playing with presents, feasting on cinnamon rolls and hot chocolate, and then enjoying a wonderful Christmas dinner of turkey and all the fix-ins. and yes, we were eating ham and turkey for the next week.
