We began our Christmas celebration a bit early. Kaitlyn and Chris came up for a visit and we opened our gifts with them on the 18th. It was wonderful to have them home and have the family all together again. Our family had not been together since July, at the time of the wedding. We had a wonderful visit. Here are pictures from the 18th.
Jadyn received a Barbie car from Bryan, and she loved it.

Here is Jadyn, by the tree on Sunday the 20th.
Here is Alan on Christmas Eve, clearing snow from the driveway. The snow storm came in waves, and I am not totally sure what the total snowfall may be. It's at least 12", and it was still coming down tonight, even though it was supposed to be done. Very MinneSNOWta!
Here is Jadyn, enjoying the snow on Christmas Eve. She's been out there for a bit of play on most days. She loves it!
We had such a wonderful Christmas and wonderful celebrations with family and friends. What a joyful time. We are very blessed.
