Mvmt IV, "Every Bell on Earth Will Ring"

(by The Oh Hellos) 

Merry Christmas!! I hope y'all have had a wonderful Christmas with family and loved ones.
We had our traditional Christmas Eve candlelight service at church followed by dinner at Denny's last night! :) I tried something new this time, the Peanut Butter Cup Pancake Breakfast:

Then we came home and each opened one gift. We tried to take a family selfie, but we were mostly unsuccessful...


Our Christmas Eve gifts haven't always been PJs, but it's what we all got and gave this year. It worked out great, because we all had new PJs to lounge around in all day today! Seriously, none of us ever got dressed. It was awesome! I just got some pants, but they're from India! And they're super cute!! I didn't model them for a picture or anything, but you'll see pictures with them later...

Pepper was adorable today...

She tried to help open almost every single present, and she proceeded to shred most of the wrapping paper once each present was opened. By the time we were finished, she was exhausted! :)

...& we had quite the mess to clean up!

Anyways, I won't post every single picture from today, but here are a few of my favorites...

{They're making Grumpy Cat faces, in case you wondered!}

{I was acting like Cody that one Christmas when he opened every present with his eyes closed!}

I'd be remiss if I posted this without any mention of the reason we celebrate Christmas. Though the family time and presents are great, Christmas would be nothing without Jesus. I am so grateful that He came to earth to live and to die for us, and that we have the hope and promise of His return! May the peace of Christ be with you today & every day! ♥
