Our First Christmas!

Wheeeww. Did you get through all of that? 
This year was the "on" year for the Stevens family to all come together for Christmas. 
There was:
Christmas lights gazing.
Breakfast at Denny's having. 
Birthday celebrations doing. 
Christmas present shopping.
Bowling. Bowling? 
Chinese food eating. 
Christmas pj's wearing. 
Christmas story reading. 
Little babies screaming. 
Christmas food baking. 
Adults reminiscing. 
Very little sleeping. 
Christmas breakfast scarfing. 
Church together going. 
4 hours of presents unwrapping. 
Christmas dinner eating. 
Christmas games playing. 
And one baby who fell out of his high-chair onto the hard tile floor and ended up with a vertical bruise on his face from the grout between the tile. 
But he was ok. Just really sleepy. 
Jude got a rocking horse and a Radio Flyer red walker wagon to get his fat-boy legs walking. 
I got new Aldo boots. holla!  
Adam got us this insanely gorgeous print that we've both been dying to have in our home but was sold out. 
Jude didn't get a concussion. 
Christmas was on a Sunday. 
We got to spend time with family who we rarely see. 
Lastly and most importantly...
We were able to celebrate the miraculous birth of our Savior into this world who's mission was to bring about peace and make it so we can return to live with our Father in Heaven again. 
Can't believe that next year Jude-Man will be almost 2! Just don't let him turn 6 because I swear it's just downhill from there. 
Hope you all had a very merry Christmas and have some fun plans for New Year's!
