Christmastime at our House!

We had a very nice season leading up to Christmas, and a very nice Christmas. This is our first Christmas since being married that we stayed home for Christmas instead of traveling to see family. Since we work at a college, and my husband also works at a High School, we attended two Christmas parties, two beautiful Christmas musical programs, one at church, and another here at the college, I was pregnant Mary and Eric was Joseph in another church's Christmas play. That was fun. I mean, how many times are you 9 months pregnant at Christmas time! For Christmas Eve we ate enchiladas, rice, and beans, and  a birthday cake for Jesus. Then we cleaned the house, put the presents under the tree, filled the stockings, and went to bed. On Christmas Day we had fun opening presents, and then I cooked a Christmas evening meal and we had some friends over. It was a great time! Here are some pictures:

 He didn't know what to think of his 4-wheeler. He now LOVES it!

 So he went for his horsey which he knew more about? Isn't it cute!
