I heard the bells on Christmas day their old familiar carols play...

Christmas Eve and Christmas day was spent in Twin Falls Idaho, all of Ben's step family left before Christmas and were replaced by Ben's sister's family. Christmas Eve we made tasty caramel popcorn balls, finished last minute wrapping, played a killer game of settlers of catan (which Ben won) prepared food for Christmas Dinner and had a lovely Christmas Eve program.

We read the story of Jesus found in Luke and sang carols; it was lovely. At the end we wrote our testimonies and put them in a stocking as a gift to our savior. It was lovely to take a quiet moment to reflect on our savior's humble birth before the rustle of presents.

Christmas morning was exciting! Ben had filled our stockings with lots of fun bits and bobs. Jack really enjoyed playing with wrapping paper and looked pretty excited about some of his gifts but he became tired rather quick so we put him down for a nap and opened the rest of his pressies!
