An Elf, A Scavenger Hunt and Traditions

(Thank you for your prayers and comments on my last post. I know the Lord hears our prayers because when I got to work the next day, I had an email from someone requiring about a job. I got another email today from someone else who is interested!)
Thank you Lord!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We flew Diana out for Christmas and she was able to stay for 2 weeks. For the first time in 5 years we had a 'typical' Christmas at our house and Sharaya and Allie even spent the night with us! We all woke up together Christmas morning. I absolutely loved it!

Our Christmas Eve tradition is Allie opens one gift, pj's and a stuffed animal. Chuck's mom started doing that when our girls were little and Sharaya asked me to do it for Allie. I love shopping for her and trying to find just the right pj's. This year I shopped late and there wasn't a huge selection but we all loved the ones I found!


    
After Allie went to bed, Sharaya and Diana put together the bike Sharaya bought for her. Then Christmas morning Sharaya had her go on a scavenger hunt to find it!







 I know this summer they're going to ride all over Seattle!










The rest of the day was spent playing games and having chips and dip. Another Anderson tradition!

It's always so much fun to have everyone wake up at mom and dad's on Christmas morning. Glad that worked out for you. Hope the people who are interested in the job post come through and are good workers.

Hi Cindy~

Looks like a fun time!! I love traditions, and I love that you are passing them on to your girls, so beautiful. My sister and her family always open all of their gifts on Christmas Eve. We never did that, but that's their family tradition. Cute pictures of your girls, and of course, Allie is a very cute little elf! And what fun to have Diana with you! Moms always love to have all their children under one roof!

So happy about your job situation! Heavenly Father hears our prayers, and probably the prayers of others who need that job, God is good!

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Hugs and Love,
Barb
