Our Christmas 2009

This Christmas Eve all the (local) kids were here as well as Nikki's parents and sister Molly.This was our first Christmas with out Tim, he is living in Europe now. We did all open gifts with him on Skype. Guess it is the next best thing to him being here, but not the same and we missed him very much.
After that, we all had a fun snowball fight before church and then another one after church that ended with me catching a snowball with my eye. Put a bit of a damper on the evening but all together we had a great time and then... we caught Santa under the tree.

We all woke up to the smell of fresh bread in the bread maker and coffee. Chris and I got up first and started making Quiche for our Christmas breakfast. The sun was just coming up over the snow covered ground. It was our very first White Christmas!

Then it was time for coffee and opening our gifts, here are a few of the highlights....
Matt getting his long awaited for mixer!

and Chris his long awaited for guitar pedal

and me.... for my notebook laptop~ yeah!

Kevin, his must have Call of Duty computer game

can't forget Ryo with her new bed

and LiLI with her kitty city that she does not appear to know what to do with

Chris and I got Nikki an apron with her name on it, I think she liked it :)

I think this pretty much sums up how we all felt after breakfast, presents and all the excitement

What a wonderful Christmas complete with family, friends, good food, a white Christmas and celebrating the birth of Christ. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
The Minich Family
