Christmas Day

We woke up on Christmas morning to our sweet pups wanting to help us open our gifts. Nick's Mom sent us the COOLEST sign. It goes perfect in our home!!! I got Nick some cozy slippers. He got me some of the Nike's that hold the pedometer things that integrated to our IPOD. Not to mention "Barbie Style" running shoes! We had stayed up so late the night before. We were rolling and braiding our cream rolls. We baked them first thing Christmas morning. Everyone loved them. Our Family arrived around nine. we did waffles, eggs, and bacon for breakfast. Everyone was already full from the cream rolls though. The guests included my Dad and Mom. Nan, my Mom's mom was there. My great grandma who is 95. My aunt Donna, Uncle Mike, and cousin West. My brother Matt, and his girlfriend Edite. Then also Grandmother too.

The meal went off with perfection!!!! We has so many good things! Spiral Honey Ham, Mom's Mashed potatoes, rolls, and pies!
Nick and I made...
Corn, Green Bean Bundles, Deviled Eggs, Cranberry Sausage Stuffing, Relish Tray, Jello fruit walnut salad .
We exchanged gifts while the food was cooking.

Mom and dad got Nick a sushi making kit, a YOUR THE BEST PLATE that my Mom make to be like the one we had when I was growing up! I can't wait to use it. They gave him a skiing helmet. Also a the Slanket. The blanket jacket thing. Its pretty nifty!
They got me a hemet and goggles. A turbie towel which I love those! A good tea cup and a Black leather Coach! I don't have a picture of that but I will post one. It's nice. Thank you MOM and DAD!

We got them a waffle Iron, like we one Nan gave us as a wedding gift, which we use every Sat!
We also did the Chinese Christmas exchange! That's just always a lot of fun! Nick got the cash money, and I got the Hot rock massage kit! I can't wait for one of those!!!

We had such quality family time. I was a great memory of our first Christmas as The Sorensen family!

Great job on the cream rolls!

The puppies are SO CUTE! We got all the pictures you and Nick sent on our phones at about 11:00.


And just so you know... Serae is still wearing that cheerleading outfit. She is sleeping in it right now. She only took it off once when we went out (it was too cold to wear outside). She calls it her princess dress. :)

So, explain your church history to me. I had no idea you were just baptized. When did you get married and where? When are you planning on getting sealed? Was Nick born in our church?
I'm so interested.
