Merry Christmas from the Luminatis. We had a nice, quiet Christmas here at home--except for the sickness part. Jon was sick Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, and Jen followed suit on Christmas Day. Thankfully, I didn't get as sick as Jon, and we were able to take turns with naps and child-watching, so we made it through ok. But we don't have a ton of pictures of our day because we never got out of our pjs!
Here's the tree, set up and ready for unwrapping:
And Daddy (a few days later) with his girls. Kate is sporting one of her favorite gifts--a princess nightgown.
One tradition we've started in our house is making Jesus a birthday cake. Here are the girls helping me decorate it. (THAT was fun--they really enjoyed that part.)
And the finished product. They were pretty proud and even managed to get most of the decorations on the cake.
I really wanted to show you some video of our day and some other fun videos, but I realized the program I need to compress the video to make it small enough to download to the blog is on our OTHER computer--which is on its way to Germany. So I'll have to try to figure something out. That or I'll just have a ton of videos to publish once we get our computer back. We'll see. Anyway, keep checking back! Merry Christmas to you--we hope you had a wonderful season with family and friends, making sure to celebrate the real reason for Christmas--the birth of Jesus!
