We wish you a Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from the Farwell's. We hope all of you have had a wonderful day filled with family, friend's and Christ's love.

We have had a such a great day at home, just the four of us. It has been fun playing, laughing and watching our children's faces as they opened thier presents.

Do you recognize this tent from a blog post over a year ago
? Yes, I bought this tent a LONG time ago in anticipation of giving it to him when he got old enough! He loves it! All of his Christmas presents and dad made their way into the tent for most of the morning.

Like most 6 month olds, Brenna was more interested in the bows and wrapping paper than her gifts! But once the wrapping paper made it's way to the garbage, she found Blake's tractor that he got this morning.

As for my Christmas gifts... my husband is amazing! In May we will be going to see Riverdance on their Farewell Tour when it comes to Cedar Falls for a few days!!!

Christmas celebrations

The Farwell's have been very busy the past couple weeks... but have created wonderful memories as we've spent time with both Nolan's family and my family.

Last weekend we went to my parent's home in Eldora.

This was Blake's favorite seat in my parent's house. It was out on their 3 seasons porch and he loved to be out there looking out the windows and trying to find the moon. Often it was just he and I sitting out there and I will always remember the time we spent out there. He would just sit and tell me stories about things that had happened earlier in the day and I would listen... I loved our time on the porch.

Do you think Brenna likes her first Cabbage Patch doll? Her face tells all!

This past weekend we headed to Kansas to spend time with Nolan's family and my dad's side of the family. We ended up having to leave Iowa earlier than planned due to a snow storm heading our way, and leaving Kansas one day late due to Blizard conditions in Iowa.

We so enjoyed our time there with family.

Blake and Brenna enjoyed time with all of their Kansas cousins! Can you believe we got them all in a picture together?

And of course... presents, presents, presents!

Two Christmas celebrations down and one to go. We are looking forward to spending Christmas day here at our home, just the 4 of us! I'm sure there will be more pictures to share soon!

Merry Christmas from Blake

Speading a little Christmas cheer from our home to yours! (you'll just have to excuse the sloppy video editing and the random shot of Brenna in the middle!)
