Soule Family Christmas

After six years in Japan, we finally got to celebrate Christmas with Jeremy and Carla and their family.   It was a short celebration, as Brantley's work schedule kind of stunk this holiday, but we all did get together.  And their new home is gorgeous!  

Cheryl and Mark decided to stay with them this trip, so we only got to see them for the morning as well.   But we packed in as much fun as we could.  A delicious brunch, omelets by Jeremy, waffles by Hannah and yummies by Cheryl and Savannah.  Then, it was present time!

Henry opening his gifts from Aunt Cheryl and Uncle Mark.

Brantley was quite excited to get the circuit set from Aunt Carla and Uncle Jeremy.

We gave Noah a Lego set, which he (im)patiently waited until we were finished opening gifts to get into! :-)

Savannah got a cute new pair of Toms

a Kindle for Hannah...

Cheryl's turn

And Big Brantley got some great sweaters from Hannah

The other photos were sort of blurry, so this it on the gifting, but the gifts just kept on coming.

All too soon, it was time to head home to get Daddy to work on time. But I snapped a few photos of their house before we left.

So, this wraps up our Christmas season.  It's back to school tomorrow for Little Brant and Mommy.  Neither of us are too happy about squeezing our lives back into a schedule.  The boys have been sleeping late, and we've had lots of time in our jammies. I love being a stay at home mommy.  But Brantley and I love our school too.  We are just so thankful and blessed that Daddy can stay home with Henry during the day and we get the best of both!

And so we enter the doldrums of January.  I wonder what we'll get into to jazz things up this year??
