Christmas 2023- De Jong side.

Merry Christmas! Experiencing Christmas through the eyes of our kids is so fun. We were home for Christmas and had a special mix of celebrating the five of us, and some wonderful time with the De Jong side too. Praying you all could celebrate His birth in a meaningful way too!

My four favorites!

Kley's family plays "hide the pickle" at Christmas, basically hide and seek for a pickle ornament. It was not my year- I didn't win but they had a prize for everyone and the girls were taking turns hiding it so they really wanted to hide it for me. So I was searching by myself at the end and Norah wanted to hide it so high in the Christmas tree that I couldn't even see it (Kley lifted her up), and then they kept shouting "you're so hot!" when I was by the tree as a clue and I couldn't find it and then Kley lifted me up. At least the girls thought this was quite funny. :)

Kley had the first victory in the pickle game. We also played Bingo to pass out gifts!

Everyone was excited to open some new fun things!

Thankful for a sweet Christmas and for the girls to have a break from school!
