Johnson Christmas

This year the Johnson Family went their separate ways for Christmas. So before everyone left we had a FHE gift exchange. A couple years ago we decided that the kids would draw names between each other and give homemade gifts. They had a 5 dollar budget and were encouraged to be creative. This is one of my most favorite traditions that we have. The kids work all month making their gifts using their talents (with the help of mom and dad).

All the kiddos loved their gifts! Brock got a framed picture of himself for his room and a hand crafted spider from Jehryn.
Kenley got a shirt with her name on it made by Maija.

Brody got a hand painted puzzle from Danni, a picture of the two of them.

Embry got a teddy bear made from scratch from Caden, she sleeps with it every night and as you can see, she loves it.

The kids all loved their gifts, but I think their favorite part was watching their cousins open the gifts that they made for them. Isn't that what it's all about? (Just look at Brody's sweet face)

For Garry and Anneli's gift this year we got all their grandkids together for a picture and framed it for their house. I think she really loved it. See the empty spot for the one on the way????
