I was able to participate in both boys Christmas parties. Calebs at his school and Ethan's at our house with the joy school kids. We made cookies, gingerbread houses and snowmen. They were both fun.
For Christmas all three kids got power wheels. We decided this year to just do one big gift and a few stocking stuffers instead of lots of gifts. It was a great idea. The boys are having such a great time with the power wheels and we love having them play outside so much.
We also continued our tradition of new pajamas and a movie on Christmas Eve.
We had several people visiting for Christmas so I decided to put on a nice Christmas dinner.
We tried to fill the evenings before Christmas with fun things like going to rhema to see the lights, picking out Christmas ornaments and participating in local Christmas activities.
A few weeks before Christmas the wards split leaving us with 4 wards in one building and no time for a traditional party. We got out of church at 5 at the time so our ward decided to have a longer longer potluck the Sunday before Christmas. Caleb was lucky enough to be the Shepard in the nativity.
We also added a few new Christmas decorations to our collection. Including this awesome nativity created by our good friend.
Christmas was wonderful. We love the season and all the friends, family and joy it brings with it.
