The 12 days of Hays Christmas

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!




On the 12th day of Christmas my true love gave to me-

12 people playing parts of the nativity at Aunt Kerri's house on Christmas Eve. I was Mary, Madi was the donkey, Jason was a sheep, Gracie was an Angel and Jakob was a shepherd.. Awwww

11 days I could stand having the kids home from school before I started going crazy

10 family members for dinner the night after Christmas since I was sick Christmas day

9 trips to Wal-Mart to pick up "Just one more thing" before christmas morning

8 toys for Gracie she never even opened. Thank goodness Jake & Madi wanted to help her out

7 Amazing ward members who showed up to help us move on Christmas Eve! They could have been spending time with their families but instead were in the freezing cold so we could have our first Christmas together in our new home. I love the Glines 2nd ward.

6 times I've seen Horton Hears a Who this week cuz the kids are in love with it

5 the number the of days I had to be patient to get the keys to our new home after closing

4 Rounds of steroids to help my immune system

3 hours in the Emergency Room Christmas Day because I was so sick

2 cases of strep throat.. yep.. I got it again and so did Jason. We've learned that penicillin shots are such a blessing though.

AND....

1 New House.. we moved in on Christmas Eve and got to spend Christmas morning in our new place
We hope you all had an amazing Christmas as well and that santa brought everything on your list. We loved spending our time as a family this year and look forward to many more wonderful christmases together.
