Christmas Celebrations of 2014

Christmas is my favorite holiday (next to the 4th of July).  There is just something so peaceful and joyful about it that even the over-commercialization can't diminish it.  This year was very different for us.  On the 23rd Jude came down with a stomach virus (his first ever) and was sick for 6 days straight.  We still managed to celebrate with our family and friends, but the poor little guy was pretty miserable most of the time.  I think the saddest part was that he had been anticipating the holiday for over one month (I mean, non-stop talking about it) then, he got violently sick.  Matt ended up being spared from the sickness, but Ezra and I came down with it on the 27th.  We were not effected as strongly as Jude, but still very sickly.  Thankfully, we seem to all be over it.  Enough with the "sick talk" though...we still had a beautiful Christmas with our loved ones.  We ate a lot of delicious food, opened some thoughtful and lovely gifts, and had cherished family time.  Here are a lot of pics from 3 separate days.
