Santa sure did visit the Horton's today

Christmas was so great this year! everyone in our family was so happy with what they received from 'Santa' and my parents. traditions are always the same in this house. we open exchange presents + white elephants Christmas Eve, then all the kids sleep in the playroom that night. we wake up Christmas morning, wait until everyone is awake, including my parents of course, then walk out to see what Santa left us. after we see everything left, and look in our stockings, we take a break and have some breakfast

after that, we all open the presents from my parents

this year Malia, Caleb and i all pitched in some money to buy my parents the gift they have been DYING for. tickets to Brian Regan on January 20 {a Friday night} and a gift card to Zupas to get dinner right before. their faces were priceless. well worth our money

i loved going to church today and hearing songs and talks about the Savior. Christmas is all about Christ's birth and i am so glad we got to attend church to remember that. Christmas is all about HIS presence not THE presents.

cousins are coming tomorrow at noon. i couldn't be HAPPIER.
Merry Christmas everyone!
