Dave had to work Christmas Eve so the kids and I went to church in Walla Walla that morning and then drove over and stopped at the station to see Dave before going over to his parents house.
The kids love visiting the firehouse and no matter how often I go they always want to do and see the same things. Jax was engrossed in the Seahawks game inside the station so he was not around for picture but was there.
We went to Christmas Eve service with all the Pemberton family and then came back to Popee and Memah's for appetizers and a few presents.

We also did our traditional acting out of the Christmas story complete with awesome costumes. This is always one of my favorite part of Christmas and it never fails to make everyone laugh and have fun.

Case was pretty excited for his new basketball.
We stayed up till 1am on Christmas Eve so we had a little later start to our morning, we had to wait for Dave to get off work so when he got back to the house around 8:30 the kids opened their stockings.
Then everyone else showed up and we had breakfast and spent the next 3 hours drinking coffee and slowly opening presents taking breaks so the kids could play with their toys and the adults laughed and talked. It was a pretty perfect Christmas morning.
Julie crocheted this new blanket for the window seat in our new house. I am in love with it and the colors! It will be perfect.
Mike and Julie had this sign made up for our gate (Taylor designed the logo using our Outfitters logo).
We came back to Walla Walla the day after Christmas to more snow. I took the kids out to the property and went sledding. Now that Christmas is over we still have another 12 days left before we go back to school!
