We hosted Scott's parents, brother and sister-in-law, grandma and cousin for Christmas dinner at our house. Papa barely had his coat off before Solon got him to play trains with him...they played off and on ALL day in between eating and napping :)....I love hosting because I get to use all those fun wedding gifts I registered for about 7 years ago :) We had a nice traditional lunch with ham, party potatoes (mom's recipe), green beans almondine, salad, rolls and Jesus' birthday cake for dessert. We had appetizers before everyone left around 6pm!
Uncle Paul (Scott's older brother) and Aunt Angee got to meet Vera for the 1st time BUT she was in rare form ALL day for some reason so they didn't get to see her at her best, hopefully next time she will be a little more smiley!
Nana and Solon put the finishing touches on our yummy "angel food" cake for Jesus! We all sang Him happy birthday!
Then after naps, we skyped the rest of the "Port Family" (Scott's sister's family) living in Australia and then exchanged gifts. Vera and Solon recieved new suitcases from Nana and Papa for our Australia trip! They will work great and will grow with them too...
We are so thankful we got to spend Christmas at home hosting our family and spending time together. We are so thankful to celebrate our Savior's birth and appreciate all He gave to us by coming to Earth as a tiny baby destined for the cross. We hope you had a happy Christmas as well!
