Christmas 2011

Well another very busy Christmas is now behind us! It was so fun to have two little boys to celebrate with this year. Malachi, in his toddlerhood and all its excitement and Elias celebrating his very first Christmas! We kept things really simple for our at home Christmas but that didn't stop everyone else from going a little nuts for the boys!

Our Christmas started on Friday with the Fair side of the family:

Elias got his first taste of gift opening with his cousins:

Malachi got into the spirit quickly!

On Saturday, we attended our church Christmas Eve service and then had a late night at Great-Grandma Fair's House:

Malachi was showing off for everyone:
Malachi was the official gift opener and Eli was the one who would check out what the new stuff was all about!

Eli's First Christmas morning - such a sweetie!
Assuming their roles that I mentioned earlier:
And on Sunday evening we celebrated Christmas with the Keyser side of the family:

Eli eating Lefsa for the first time:

Malachi eating Lefsa, along with a few other things.

It was a really fun time, and Christmas is definitely more joyful having children. Peter and I were thoroughly exhausted after the busy weekend, but fortunately we have had two days to rest and recover. We've spend out weekend getting everything organized and getting back into the swing of things.

I can't believe Christmas has already come and gone. The New Year is on the way!
