A Merry Little Christmas

Our annual Christmas Eve program was hijacked by the kids this year, and they rocked it!
A Live Nativity :)This year's new books to add to the collection were Gingerbread Baby and Christmas Day in The Morning. Both are ExCeLlEnT!
Making Cookies for Santa! (and some leftovers for the helpers!!)Everyone was "big enough" to help this year. (Notice the self-cut bangs?! She thinned them out all on her own, and was NOT HAPPY to be interrupted before she "finished". Merry Christmas Eve Mom!!)Do you remember EVER being this excited?Dress-ups were delivered by Santa!New Hooded Towels! All the rage.Apparently there is an award for the recipient of the largest gift. It's all about size, baby. (I was unaware of this before...)
And they spent all day creating and being creative with their gifts!

And at the end of the day, which was very merry, we were happy and tired, indeed.

Happy Birthday Jesus! Thank YOU for the best gift of all!

What was your favorite part of the holiday?


  1. I thought that last picture was me for a sec!

    Fun pics. I love Gunnar's face over the Martian Matter.

    And every 2-3 yr old has to cut their bangs at least once...just hope it's only once...not too shabby!

    I love that this Christmas I'm magically in the mood to cook!

  2. i LOVE the Gingerbread Baby! Have you been to Jan Brett's website? Great stuff.

    Merry Christmas!
    At least Syd got your freakin' thick hair. Unless you compare with a "before pic" you really can't even tell it's been thinned out because it was so thick to begin with.

  3. OK, so I love the haircut and I want to know where the pictures are of you and Chris in the hooded towels. I am sure that Chris's was bright orange with pineapples and mangos on top! I was so happy every time I saw this AWESOME ornament from my favorite friend in North Carolina. I love your new Christmas book choices. All that being said, we missed you so much. We got the basement done and can't wait to show it all to you.

  4. I thought the last picture was Kasey for a second, too.

    Where did you get those hooded towels? They look nice and big. All the ones I ever find are pretty short and are becoming inadequate now that the kids are so tall.
