A Kinnan (and Kerby!) Christmas

And when they were there, the time came for her baby to be born. She gave birth to her first child, a son. She wrapped him snugly in stips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
Luke 2:6-7

What a year we have had! God has truly blessed us and provided for us in countless ways, and throughout this season and each and every day as we celebrate the birth of our Savior, we pray that you experience the joy of Jesus Christ and the rich blessing of knowing Him as your Lord and Savior.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Kinnan's!

Great-Grandma Bush sent an Advent Tree especially for Hayden ... he had a great time putting the ornaments on ... and taking them off ... and putting them on ... and taking them off ... hours of fun! We left on Tuesday the 21st and stayed in KC until Sunday the 26th. We had a fabulous time with family and remembering what this Christmas season is all about!

After the traditions of dinner at the Outback on Wednesda, a movie on Thursday night, (and MILKSHAKES!) , and much too much amazing food from chef Kathy, we celebrated Christmas at the Kinnan's on Friday (Christmas Eve) morning. Hayden and Ailee had a blast opening their presents, and got so many great things! As you can tell, Hayden really enjoyed his wagon of building blocks! He also got a little Leap Frog "learning drum" that is perfect for our little Boomer ... at least now is pounding on things can help him learn! HaHa!

Friday afternoon we headed for the Kerby's, and since mom and dad were hosting the Kerby Family Christmas this year, I helped mom cook while the guys enjoyed some Christmas movies. There was LOTS of cooking to do! We spent the night with Ryan, Lara, and Liz ... and woke up early Christmas morning to gifts from them. We left early for mom and dad's to eat breakfast ... which is one of the highlights that we always look forward to ... mom's breakfast casserole! YUMMY! :)

Hayden got Noah's Ark filled with animals and Noah and his wife to play with ... very cool, and David and I are excited to have an actual "prop" to teach Hayden the story with!

Hayden also got a rocking horse ... and was definitely loving it! He especially likes to put his hand in the horsie's mouth when it sings, because it moves up and down and makes Hayden laugh. What a precious little guy we have!

Christmas day was full of family and food ... we ate and ate and ate ... and have no pictures to show for it since we were busy eating and talking and opening gifts! Mom and dad did a wonderful job as hosts, and the party lasted for hours!

We headed back to KC Christmas evening and left for home Sunday afternoon. David and I have the week off and next Monday he goes back to work, Hayden goes back to Miss Gwen's, and I start student teaching! :)

Glory to God in the highest heaven, and peace on earth to all whom God favors. Luke 2:14

We Love You!
