On Christmas Eve we have always had the tradition that the children swap gifts with each other. It spreads things out and makes their gifts a little more special.
Matthew is very good about spending time with his little brothers. He really enjoys Malachi now that he has gotten a little bigger. He bought Malachi his first very own bat! :o)
Myles was quite proud of his Superman t-shirt.
One of the many things I miss about McKenzie being home is hearing the girls sing together.
Christmas morning the kids have always come down together to open their stockings. It was special that McKenzie got to be here and that Daniel joined the crew this year.
Macheus got Annie's Organic Gummies!!! That was ALL he cared about! :o)
Marc usually cooks a big breakfast on Christmas morning. We changed things up a little bit this year and fixed a breakfast casserole. McKenzie and I flew all over town trying to get donuts on Christmas Eve. Krispy Kreme closed early and we ended up with Kroger donuts. The kids didn't mind. They only get them about once a year, so they thought it was great! :o)
It is always funny to me that children latch on to one gift (and it is often times the most unlikely one!) This year Myles absolutely loved his Charlie Brown Christmas ornament that we put in his stocking. He is still talking about it!
One of Mariah's favorite gifts was her "Growing Up Duggar" book.
Little Macheus in his Christmas jammies!
My sister and her family came down for Christmas. The girls headed out to the barn to saddle up the horse.
A little boy's Christmas isn't complete if he doesn't get some Cowboy stuff and a new gun!
Headed to the barn with Grandpa.
A full house!
Macheus kept disappearing and we followed him into the laundry room. He had discovered the sugar cookies!
Malachi got a new bike! He has always ridden Matt's old bike, so he was pretty excited!
