Christmas 2010

Here we are Christmas Eve! Taking a quick pix before sending the kids off to bed, so Santa could come our way. We had a lovely Christmas eve dinner with Bro. & Sis. Jerry Peterson. The turkey and all the trimmings, thankfully turned out great.

"One Big Happy Family!"

It's Christmas morning now! This year, we finally got our Christmas morning to ourselves, and boy oh boy, was it ever NICE to have it to ourselves. The past Christmas mornings we've spent them with my in-laws, they've been great, but it's just gotten to be a little too much for the kids and just a bit too rushed of a Christmas morning. So, this year we requested that from here on we will start our own traditions of having our Christmas mornings to ourselves. So this morning we got up at 8 a.m. had our Christmas story out of Luke 2, had family prayer, and then on to the stockings and presents, then had breakfast. It was totally relaxing and "rush-free".

Muloki is loving his Christmas gift that he received from his sister Ocean. He got a Lego kit and some balloons that he could build characters with.

Merry Christmas y'all and have a Happy New Year!
All the best and much love,
From the Arnolds
