Since we’re traveling to California for Christmas this year, we started our celebration a little early. Yesterday, with the sub-zero temperatures, we figured it was the perfect day to stay inside and spend some quality family time together. Fortunately, because of our church’s Christmas show, “Let it Be Christmas: The Gospel According to Matthew, Mark, Luke, John Paul, George, and Ringo” on Saturday night, we attended services then, and didn’t have to brave the “frozen tundra” Sunday morning.
After Ryder’s afternoon nap, we brought out all the gifts (that have to stay hidden so that certain furry family members don’t open them too early!) and snapped a few pictures of Ryder in front of the tree. He was very excited to sit in his “big boy chair” (a Bumbo Baby Sitter), and play with the wrapping paper from the gifts Ryan and I gave each other.
So we’ve had time to relax… and now it’s time to get ready to head out. We’ve had to change to an earlier flight with the hope of missing the impending snow storm… so it’s time for laundry, last minute errands, and packing. Wish us luck!
