"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

Christmas Day

Christmas Day was a bit different for us this year. Usually we spend Christmas Eve with Matt's family, and Christmas Day with mine, but Jamie and Will were in Ocala, and Jacob and Brooke were in Jacksonville, so we decided to do our traditional "Frye Christmas" with everyone together the day after Christmas. After our nice family time on Christmas morning, Matt and I and the boys went to Nana and Papa's house. My parents let the boys open up a small gift. My mom made a delicious lasagna, salad, green beans, and garlic bread for lunch. We had a nice quiet Christmas lunch together! After lunch, my mom and I took the boys on a long bike ride to look at all of the Christmas decorations. We did some swinging too! We had some dessert and Carson explained the manger and baby Jesus to us! :) We headed home for a nice Christmas nap - my best present all day!! After naps, Marie, Sharon, Sarah, and Michael all came over for dinner. The kids played with their new toys. Then I made homemade hot chocolate with candy canes, and we all loaded up in our van to drive around and look at Christmas lights. We had a great low-key family Christmas day!
