Christmas 2014

Alright, so here’s some pictures from Christmas 2014. Better late than never, right? We moved into our new house on December 14 and then my parents came a week later to spend the holidays with us so it’s been busy over here! But I’m trying hard to catch up on posts (starting with my Christmas post) and have several more in the works (including a house tour!).

 

Poor Olive…. or is it poor Santa!? =)

We had a great Christmas this year! Simple, but good. We decided to go small on presents. It’s so easy to get caught up in thinking we need to buy so much (especially for our kids). But with the budget stretched especially thin with having just bought and moved into a new house we couldn’t spend alot this year. That’s ok, though, because presents are not the reason we celebrate Christmas. We celebrate because Jesus was born to save us from our sins. We celebrate to spend quality time with friends and family. We celebrate to remember what an awesome gift we’ve been given through Christ!

My three Christmas cuties!
The kids and their cousin, Gavin.
Christmas Eve!
As per Hutcheson tradition, the kids get to open their stockings on Christmas Eve. =)

 

 

 

 

 

On Christmas Eve we went to see some amazing lights in a nearby neighborhood with my parents and sisters. It was alot of fun!
Oh my!!! Look at that pout when she wanted to open a gift Christmas morning but it wasn’t her turn yet! Lol!
Ironically the pout disappeared when she opened her present. =)
Isaiah wrapped up a picture of himself as a baby, then gifted it to himself, then opened it up saying, “Oh!!! A picture of me as a baby, how cute mom. Look at me, I was so cute”. We were cracking up!
You can always count on Drew to make an amazing face on Christmas morning. =)
Like I said, we totally went all out this year on presents…. my husband got me cheese popcorn!!!
A gift for Meema.
New gloves for Papa (can you tell he doesn’t live in Florida?)
A gift for Janae!
I think Meema liked her gift! (A bird feeder)
Isaiah wrapped up a gift for Eloise – some of her own old toys. =) And then he opened it for her on Christmas morning. Lol!
One of Isaiah’s favorite gifts – A Nerf Gun from Meema and Papa. Isaiah could not understand how in the world Meema and Papa knew what he wanted most for Christmas! 😉
Adelynn got body spray!

 

 

Pacis and sippie cups for baby Livy!
That little pony tail!! ❤
Olive got her first baby doll!
Another of Isaiah’s favorite gifts!
Opening up gifts at Mimi and Grandpa’s house!

 

It was a wonderful Christmas and we all got more than we needed! We were so blessed to be able to spend lots of time with my parents and little sisters as well as Drew’s family. Thank you, Jesus, for coming as a tiny baby to save us from our sins. We are so unworthy and yet so grateful. Merry (late) Christmas!
