Christmas Eve

On Christmas Eve, we went to our new church for their Christmas Eve service.  Quite different from the late night services my traditional Lutheran Church back home, especially considering it was daylight and almost 70 degrees outside when church let out.  We're used to it being close to midnight and probably 10 degrees in Iowa after Christmas Eve church services!  We spent the rest of the day just hanging out and getting ready for Santa to visit!

Someone wasn't very happy to be taking pictures...
but she came around!

We opened just a few gifts on Christmas Eve and then waited for the big guy to do his magic overnight!

Christmas Cookies

The last few months have been a little crazy, so it's been a while since I have posted.  But I'm back!
This week was all about family and Christmas.  In true Hensley fashion this year, we had another first.  Our First Christmas in California.  We weren't able to travel back home this year.  We definitely missed our families, but had an amazing holiday anyway!
One of our family traditions is to back sugar cut-out cookies for Christmas.  We have to make them for Santa of course! Enjoy a few pics from our baking session this year...
