Merry Christmas, friends! I hope you are snuggled up somewhere cozy, basking in the love of family, friends, and an awesome Savior! It has been a wonderful morning (and early afternoon) an the Johns household, savoring every minute of this glorious day and doing everything we can to make it last. Now we anxiously await the arrival of my other mom, dad, and brothers (I think some people call them aunt, uncle, and cousins?) and then the festivities will continue. In the mean time, here are a few images from the day so far:
[mom's homemade cream biscuits... yum. similar recipe here]
[quite possibly the best latte yet... oh snap!]
[I can't think of a better day to celebrate!]
[Christmas Cheers! Mimosas- Orange and Cranberry-Pomegranate! (note: the little ones used Sprite Zero... no need to call Social Services)]
[opening presents fireside]
Merry Christmas, from our nest to yours.
May you be filled with the joy of the season.
Then the angel said to them,
“Do not be afraid, for behold,
I bring you good tidings of great joy
which will be to all people."
