first, we celebrated christmas with friends before they left town for several days.
we visited the train display at the cincinnati museum center
jacob built a gingerbread house out of paper. this kid has the most creative mind!
we played in the little bit of snow (jacob did some push-ups)
kate made snow angels :)
christmas eve, we had a special dinner of shrimp, cheeses, and fruit.
christmas morning, the kids opened their presents
then we indulged in christmas cinnamon rolls, yum!
christmas afternoon we were invited over to our friends' (and neighbors!) house for christmas dessert and fellowship. it was nice to have some sort of "family" time with them on this day.
we ended the day with christmas pizzas (tomato, basil, and mozzerella).
overall, a nice family time we had!
