Christmas morning at the Thomson's!

I tried to make sure that we focused our holiday around the Savior. During the Christmas season, we spent a lot of time reading spiritual stories, studying the life and teaching of Christ, and singing sacred hymns. We talked of Christ and rejoiced in Christ. As a mom, it was really important to me that my kids knew exactly what Christmas was--the celebration of the birth of our Savior. 

We try to not focus too much on the material and really do our best to keep the presents to a minimum, but there is just something so fun about ripping open presents on Christmas morning that brings so much energy and life! I loved every squeal and shriek of joy Christmas morning. It was a great morning!
Waiting to come in!

My pretty pretty present! I didn't want to open it up, it was so beautiful!

It was a quilt my sis-in-law made me! I LOVE IT!!

So happy it is dripping from her eyes and nose :)

And the biggest kid of all with his haul from the day!
Now if we can just remember that kind of enthusiasm as we partake of the gift of our Savior Jesus Christ!
