Christmas 2020- De Jong side.

We were in Des Moines over actual Christmas with my side, and we got to celebrate over New Year's with Kley's side! I really love celebrating with both side. What a joy to reflect on our Savior's birth and to enjoy quality time together as a family. This Christmas was especially sweet being together, as we didn't get to see family as much as we usually get to this year because of COVID. So thankful for His birth and family!

I'm not sure of the origin of this tradition, but last year the De Jongs started the tradition of the "Find the Pickle" game after hearing about several families in our church doing it. It's fun! Basically you just hide the pickle somewhere in the house and whoever finds it gets a prize. We did a couple rounds, and Lucy was so excited when she found it on her turn!

We had a popcorn bar for afternoon snack. So fun!

A rare picture of just me and my love!

Ellory got this Paw Patrol tower and she's in love!

Lucy got this builder construction set and it's been a huge hit!

Norah has been loving sleeping with a "cozy" blanket, meaning she's been stealing the one from the living room, so she got her own. She loved it!

Our best family photo shot.

Love four matching cousins! We unfortunately didn't get a whole family shot this holiday, but next time!
