Christmas with the Snyders

We spent New Year's weekend with my side of the family. Kara and Dan came up with Junia from Fort Wayne, and it was nice to be able to have a little extra time with everyone.

We also were able to spend some time with our Wallinga family for another Christmas party!

The clouds looked like mountains...it was so pretty, but this picture doesn't really do it justice!

Making Bonquet...one of my favorite Dutch treats!

Oh Oliver...hiding in the doll house :)

We continued our Christmas traditions again this year! We had a great day, again relaxing at home.

Homemade doughnuts, of course!

The kids went together with their money for their gift to Stephen

She has been BEGGING for ballet slippers!


And of course our traditional big Christmas meal! We had ham, potatoes, beans, cheesy cauliflower, homemade rolls, and a super yummy Oreo dessert that I modified. It was all amazing!

Christmas Eve

For Christmas Eve we enjoyed spending the day together after church. We opened up our stockings, which is one of our traditions, and then a newer tradition that the kids have enjoyed the last few years was sleeping in the living room together :) Stephen and I (ok, ok...I fell asleep) watched the Lions once it became available online.

Even Daisy gets a stocking...and she KNOWS it LOL

 And we can't leave out Pepper! He got a little catnip mouse :)

And of course our traditional family picture :)
