Our Christmas day was jolly this year. We spent Christmas morning at our own house checking out stockings and opening gifts. Austin and Emma were thrilled with everything from their new Lego sets to their new alarm clocks. Rebecca spent hours of time this last year making a new wooden dump truck (pictured above) for Austin that is sized to go with a previous wooden toy she created for him, and she was very happy that he liked it.
After lunch, we headed to Grandma and Grandpa’s house for dinner and some additional gifts. Austin and Emma were once again thrilled with the awesome K’nex sets they got from extended family. We enjoyed spending some time with family and playing some games together as well. We stayed the night so that we could also play racquetball this next morning with Nate’s old roommates and go out to lunch with them.
While things were a bit different this year with all the face masks, social distancing, and other such things, we were grateful to still be able to spend time with loved ones despite virus concerns.
