This post is a few months late, but better late than never. We had a great Christmas. So much fun, in fact, that we forgot to take very many pictures.
We spent Christmas Eve at Jeff's parents' house. In the past, we have celebrated Christmas Eve with the extended Gittins family, but this year we started a new tradition with just the immediate family. Clara and Ashlyn were both glad that Santa Claus took some time out of his busy schedule to stop by for a visit.
Christmas Eve night was pretty difficult. Ashlyn went to sleep a little early, but then woke up around midnight and would not go back to sleep. Jeff was up until 4:00 in the morning trying to get Ashlyn back to sleep.
Christmas morning was spent opening presents. The girls had a blast opening all of their presents. They must have been very good girls this year, because they got a truckload. We also went to church with Jeff's parents. It was nice to celebrate Christmas with songs and messages about Christ.
Christmas afternoon was spent with Aubree's family, with a delicious lunch, more presents, and lots of games.
