This year Christmas was so magical. I’m pretty sure I say that every year, but it’s true! J loved all things Christmas and could not wait to meet Santa. He actually met him 2x this year and he thought both occasions were unbelievable. That’s quite a change from past years, he was pretty unsure about him till now.
Our schedule was pretty full all month long, so I’ll let the pictures do some of the talking.
Christmas Eve we went to my parents early in the afternoon and ate appetizers, did the gift exchange, family talent show(always so cute!), and the kids did the nativity.
J got nervous singing Rudolph for his talent so his cousins jumped up to help, so cute!
Then we headed to Josh’s Grandma and Grandpa’s house for dinner and bingo. Anyone who gets a bingo gets a white elephant type gift until the gifts are gone, it’s hilarious!
After dinner all 4 of Josh’s siblings plus their spouse/bf/fiancé and the 5 grandkids headed back to his parents house. We had the kids perform the nativity and then tucked them into bed.
The adults stayed up late and had a devotional(one of my fav traditions) and then headed to bed.
Christmas morning was so fun with all the kids playing and being so excited with what Santa left. Lily was mostly enthralled with the other kids and their excitement.

We headed home and couldn’t get up our driveway, Josh had to dig us out for a good half hour! 18 inches of snow, it was gorgeous.
Later that night we went back to Josh’s parents for his dad’s traditional Sasaki dinner, I’m still dreaming about it! I’m already so excited for next year’s Christmas=)
