Christmas this year was so fun. We love visiting with family and this time of year allows us lots of opportunities to be with ours. The Saturday evening before the holiday was spent with the Bryson side. We got together with Scott's brothers and sister and their families for a treat exchange. Grandma Bryson sent all the little girl cousins these cute Christmas tutus. Claire loved hers and wanted to wear it all weekend.

Christmas Eve was pretty quiet but special. We read the story of Jesus' birth with Grandma and Grandpa McClellan, watched the animated Nativity video for Claire and then finished with some hot chocolate.  :)

Everett got us up pretty early the next morning, but we were probably too excited to sleep in anyway. :)

When Claire finally woke up we opened our stockings. I think Claire loved her candy cane of skittles the most and Everett liked the little rattle he got in his.

We went upstairs to have breakfast with my sister Kristy and her family, who had also come to visit, and then after eating we opened the rest of our presents. One of my projects this year was a quilt for Claire's bed. I finished it just in time for a Christmas present. It's a rag quilt and I made sure to put a lot of yellow in it because her favorite color is yellow. I just wish I had made it a little longer, because it's a tad too short for her bed, but besides that I'm pretty happy with it, and she likes it. :)

After opening presents and playing with them just a little, we headed down to Spanish Fork to see the Bryson family. We celebrated cousin Tasha's birthday and we were lucky enough to schedule appointments and get our nails done by her that day too. :) Claire still looks at her now chipped nail polish on her nails and says "Tasha...nails...pretty!"

We had dinner with them and enjoyed relaxing and playing with our new toys and then it was home to bed. It was such a fun Christmas!
