Christmas with the Londons

On Sunday December 18th, the London family came over to our house to have an early Christmas celebration before Jeremy reported to the MTC that Wednesday. The last time we were all together was for Kyle's and my wedding and the time before that was Chris and Chantelle's wedding 2 years previously. So, it was a lot of fun being all together, especially with 2 new additions this year!

Connor on the top (age 9 months); Douglas on the bottom (age almost 11 months).

We had our traditional Christmas dinner of ham, scalloped potatoes, green beans, and homemade rolls. After dinner was finished, we read "The Miracle of the Wooden Shoes." It's an adorable book. Cambria helped read the last few pages. I couldn't believe how good of a reader she is already! She's barely 7 and was definitely reading well above her age level. :) After the story, presents were passed out and opened one at a time from youngest to oldest.

Kyle and I received a "meowing" singing cat card from Jeremy (as well as a puzzle and a Panda Express gift card). :) Thanks Jeremy!

After presents, we had our traditional London Mint Ice Cream Dessert (it's a chocolate cookie and butter crust with mint chocolate chip ice cream and fudge on top, then topped with whipped cream if desired). It's definitely one of my favorites. :)
