Merry Christmas

We hope everyone had a very merry Christmas. We had a lot of fun over here with a 1 1/2 and 3 1/2 year old. It was neat to see Caleb start to understand the meaning behind Christmas. The second picture shows Keith reading the Christmas story before we open our gifts. Each of our children received 3 gifts (like Baby Jesus) from us and 1 from each other. Caleb picked out a mommy bear and a baby bear for Alanna since she likes bears. He was sooo excited for her to open them. Her response to the gift? "Grrrrrr" (like a bear).

Meijer Garden Christmas Trees and Train

To get in the spirit of Christmas we took a trip up to Meijer Gardens to see their Christmas Trees from Around the World display. There are probably about 20 trees decorated according to various countries. The Auntie Cami, Alanna and I enjoyed seeing all the colorful decorations. Caleb just wanted to see the train. There was 1 train and 2 trolleys that would travel back and forth between the various rooms. Caleb would run between the rooms to follow the train.
