Opening presents is a family affair.

Opening presents is a family affair.

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.

With 18-20 present-openers (girlfriends were in and out:)), our one
tree just couldn’t contain them all. Somehow we managed.

Papa and Timmy.

So excited for Mama’s present.DSC_0230

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.DSC_0239 DSC_0246

My brother has a kid.
Will it ever get old?!DSC_0256

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;)

The newlyweds.DSC_0260

Anna and Jeffrey’s hummingbird feeder…to be used at their beautiful new house!DSC_0262

Mary double fisting her natural energy drinks!DSC_0266

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!DSC_0275

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!DSC_0301

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?!DSC_0324

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!DSC_0308 DSC_0311 DSC_0316

We took a break for lunch and kiddo naps.
Man, getting dressed makes one feel alive!DSC_0318

That face!

Matt got two of these. From different people!
Somebody’s got his number.DSC_0330

And then. I got the present to beat all presents.DSC_0341

A beautiful peacoat.DSC_0344

That can work around an 8-month pregnant belly.DSC_0345

Merry Christmas, Hutchens Family!
And Abby’s giant bear.
