08 Jan Opening presents is a family affair.
Posted at 06:39h
Our big Christmas meal is on Christmas Eve. We love it that way, because we make
it so big that we can eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Christmas. No cooking,
just present-opening, present-playing, and overall lounging around. The.best.
With 18-20 present-openers (girlfriends were in and out:)), our one
tree just couldn’t contain them all. Somehow we managed.
Happy Christmas Morning!
Papa and Timmy.
So excited for Mama’s present.
Corban and Jaeda found a baby Jesus and drove him around
on a tractor all morning. He was occasionally “stolen” in the
trailer to be later found and retrieved by some jungle animal.
My brother has a kid.
Will it ever get old?!
Ben wasn’t too sure about it being called “Matt’s Workshop,” but he’s a full-time
student and half-time employee, so I don’t think he has much say in the matter;)
Anna and Jeffrey’s hummingbird feeder…to be used at their beautiful new house!
Mary double fisting her natural energy drinks!
Ben opening his graduation gift.
He graduated in 2013.
I just finished it.
I think that blanket’s big enough for me and James to share it
with Ben and Anna. I’m sure they were thinking the same thing.
Tim, you’re great, but man, your wife is beautiful!
Hopper Diddlee Doo.
My mom made all the married couples these frames with one jingle bell
per Christmas celebrated together. The colored bells represent a child
(or grandchild) born during that year. What a fun, thoughtful gift!
Of course, my dad got my mom some beautiful piece of jewelry.
All husbands, take note.
Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland is my mom’s secret for awesome
one-of-a-kind ornaments. Tim and Courtney moved to Michigan this year!
And we’ve got two kids and one on the way. HOW CUTE IS THIS?!
We got that sweatshirt for Jon, and he didn’t take it off the whole week. Score!
Jaeda took a break from presents to do a puzzle on the iPad.
Um. She is precious!
We took a break for lunch and kiddo naps.
Man, getting dressed makes one feel alive!
Matt got two of these. From different people!
Somebody’s got his number.
And then. I got the present to beat all presents.
A beautiful peacoat.
That can work around an 8-month pregnant belly.
Merry Christmas, Hutchens Family!
And Abby’s giant bear.
