This was a very special Christmas, because the whole family was together again. On Christmas Eve, the Johnsons went down to Vista to be with all the aunts and uncles and cousins. We ate great food and then had a visit from Santa which surprised all the little ones! We did a "yankee swap" gift exchange (reference to the TV show The Office) and I ended up with a girly hot pink poker set! Can't wait to play! On Christmas morning, we woke up and opened a couple of gifts, then went to church. It's the first time that Christmas had fallen on a Sunday since 1994, so Mom really wanted to go. By the time we got home, Danny and Shannon arrived. Danny had to work on Christmas Eve, then got home at 2am, and slept for 2 hours. They left so early and were exhausted, but we were just so happy to have them home to celebrate. That night Grandma Julie came over and we had a yummy dinner all together!
Bryson's first Christmas!
Oops, Santa forgot to remove the security tag on Danny's sweater. Missie showing off her new Christmas presents! This is a Brighton purse that Dad and I got Mom for Christmas. She started crying when she opened it. : ) Dad got Mom and Precious matching outfits from Nordstrom!
