The Akers' Christmas, 2006

Merry Christmas to all of our family and friends! I hope everyhad had a merry, merry day yesterday. Ours was wonderful, full of family and food and presents and lots of toys! Christmas with kids is so crazy compared to when it was just Kurt and I. Gracious.

After Kurt and I sang at church on Christmas Eve, we came home and put cookies and milk out for Santa. Then, we put reindeer food out in the driveway.

Kurt then read "The Night Before Christmas" to the boys. Well, Brody listened... Seth pretty much wiggled his way out and then climbed all over them.

Then, it was off to bed.
In the morning, we sang Happy Birthday to Jesus and then found out that Santa had come!

The cookies were gone! The reindeer food was scattered all over the driveway (Reindeer must be really messy eaters). The stockings were overflowing!

We had a small breakfast, opened presents,

and unwound a MILLION extremely annoying, small tangled wires from the backs of about 30 toys. All parents know that these little buggers look pretty innocent, but in reality, they are cruel and unusual punishment.

Mimi and PaChuck came over for brunch

and we played a fun new game.

And enjoyed being together.

After naptime, we headed over to Mimi and PaChuck's house to have Christmas dinner with Suz, Bry, Evan, and Mimi and PaChuck. It was a wonderful day full of dump trucks, balls, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Disney's Cars, and games!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!
