Happy New Year!

Scenes from our very Merry Christmas

Thought you all would like a Christmas update from us! We had a wonderful holiday, beating all expectations. Emma was Little Miss Christmas this year, singing Jingle Bells and shouting "Merry Christmas!" to whoever we passed. She was very excited when we told her the Christmas is when we celebrate Jesus Christ's birthday. She would sing "Happy Birthday" to Jesus and tell him to blow out the candles!

The Meldrum kids were sent cards from thoughtful people across the country. We recieved season's greetings from people in Idaho, Utah, Michigan, Arizona, California, North Carolina and Maine. Emma loves her United States puzzle, so she got to actually hear from people living in some of those states.

Speaking of states, here's Bryce and his new jersey! He got to open his first Christmas presents and boy did he get excited.

Emma did enjoy ripping into the packages, but she even got excited for others' gifts. She would hand us a present and sing, "Present time, present time! Open a present and see what's inside!"

It was such a blessing for us to share Christmas together as a family. We taught the kids about baby Jesus and why this day is so important. We'll definitely remember this particular Christmas Day for a long time.
