Caleb looking pleased with all of his gifts
Joel is wearing one of his gifts. Can you guess what it is? Leave a comment and we'll see if you're right. :)
Jaden gave each member of the family, all seven of us, $1. Here he is giving his gift to me. I was 'elected' to have my photo taken with Jaden as he distributed his thoughtful gifts. This was his first year to really give anything to anybody else. He's either been to little to understand, or hasn't had the money. :) We give our gifts in order of age, youngest to oldest. We open all of them, one by one. It's really quite fun to do it that way, because everybody gets a chance to see what you got, instead of having lots of wrapping paper flying and chaos.
Can you tell we love to read!? I think that all of us received at least 1 book apiece. Some of us received several. Johanna got a big surprise: Caleb, Phoebe & I went together to purchase the rest of the Castleberry's Farm Mystery Series and ordered it. She had been wanting to get it but had not the money. So, I was able to do all of the ordering and emailing behind her back, and then on Christmas morning, she opened that box and was really excited! Can you guess what she's been doing the last several weeks? By the way, if you'd like information on how to order this great, wholesome series for your family, check out their website.
