Christmas in Lux!

Classic Christmas Picture 2015
Andi, Kyle and Ben posed for the hat picture from Bloomington, IL
We had a European Christmas this year -- it was filled with family and so much joy! For starters, sweet Little Elizabeth was in the world, and she got to meet so many people who love her -- a true Christmas blessing! On top of that, Mollie, Kenny, sweet Evie, my dad and Ning flew all the way across the ocean to celebrate with us! It was so exciting waiting in the airport to pick up the Jacksons!

I asked the kids to tell me their favorite parts of Christmas this year, and here are a few things that they said:
  • Dancing to fun Christmas carols with Aunt Mollie and Evie
  • Lobster-eating! 
  • Jumping in the mud puddles on Christmas Eve with Poppa and Aunt Mollie
  • Playing soccer with Uncle Kenny!
  • Going to the Christmas markets
  • Wearing funny Christmas hats
  • Reading Christmas stories by the tree every night with tea and biscuits
  • Finding Skittles in Ning's purse!
Mollie and I snuck out to the Christmas market

Hard to say good bye!
