Christmas in Indy!

After spending Christmas morning at our house with just the three of us, we went to downtown Indy and spent the morning at a soup kitchen. Christmas is also Jon's birthday and that was his request this year for his birthday. It was a lot of fun and a family tradition we hope to continue for years to come. We want the heart of Jesus, service, and thinking of others to be a natural and normal part of Christmas. We then spent the remainder of the day and evening with Jon's family opening gifts, eating lots of food, and just hanging out.

Mommy & Mekonen sharing lots of hugs! (as usual)Daddy & Mekonen

I get Nicholas Sparks' new book every year. I'm a sucker for his love stories. Hehe.

Grandpa Doug and Grandma Magz' FAVORITE gift this year: a picture of their two grandsons together (Owen & Mekonen)
Celebrating Daddy's birthday. Yes, that's only one candle in a pumpkin pie. Don't worry, Jon did have an actual cake and birthday presents, but for some reason the candle ended up in the pumpkin pie.
Mekonen loved his first taste of pumpkin pie and whipped cream.

Kisses for Mommy.
A very sleepy Mekonen after a long day full of presents, food, and family. I'm going to miss these kinds of moments when he is too big to hold like this.
