Gingerbread Houses

We had a Galbraith family dinner with those who live nearby by parents last Saturday night. It was a lot of fun. My mom had the house decorated from top to bottom just about!

After dinner the kids made gingerbread houses. Ali was excited all day about making them. Although I think she was really just thinking that she would be eating them :)

Here's my sister Nat and her cute kids. We missed our siblings/nieces/nephews who live away from us!

It's so hard not to kiss this boy all the time.

My parents got him these cute reindeer jammies. Not sure where the goose egg is from :(

Justin was in attendance too. My parents also had us open a book for each family about the nativity. It has beautiful pictures with songs to sing as well as scriptures. The food was delicious too! We had ham, twice baked potatoes, rolls, corn, a delicious salad, and dessert.

Technically this is a Galbraith Christmas, but Natalie's family has done their own thing Chrimstas morning for the past several years and this will mark the first year that we will spend it just as our little family. We are looking forward to it! Then my parents and brother Todd will join us for brunch and later we will head to Natalie's.

Merry Christmas everyone!
