It's been a fun, family filled, Christmas. Here are some pictures of the activities.
Christmas eve at Candice and Andy's house.
Santa, bless his heart, took time out of his BUSY schedule to stop by and say "Hi" to the fam.
Jeanette got a gift.
Kelsey wasn't sure about Santa.
Troy just wanted to get hold of Santa's beard. Luckily Dan was able to hold him back!
Corban gave his list of wishes to Santa. (A little too late, buddy)
The beginning of the Nativity.
David has been the donkey since he was 12 years old! According to Emily, who played Mary, the reason why Uncle Dave is the donkey is because he won't break! Others had their own philosophy but we'll stick with Em's.
Mary. wrapping the Baby Jesus in his swaddling clothes as Joseph looks...around.
After the reading of Luke, acting out the Nativity and singing Christmas hymns at the appropriate places, we convened in the kitchen for ginger bread house decorating.
Nicole's team consisting of Kelsey and Keiti. Their house had the fewest decorations but those girls sure had a good time eating the candy.
Jeanette, Em and Rachael putting the final touches on the only house that stayed together!
Christmas eve in new pajamas. Perhaps this will be our next year's Christmas picture! (perhaps not!)
Christmas morning. Jacob playing the drums.
C8 admiring her Cabbage Patch Doll.
Jeanette loving her gift...
...but not as much as Jordan loving Jill's Snuggie!
Christmas dinner with my parents, brother, sister and their families.
Ending the day with a little Wizard of Oz
and a cuddle with Troy!
I am so blessed! I hope everyone had a fabulous day!
