We had a wonderful Christmas this year. I was sad that we weren't going to be able to spend it with any of our extended family but it ended up being very fun! We of course had to carry out the traditional acting out of the nativity. Lydia began by being a Bethlehem Ballerina but by the end was an angel complete with a laundry basket pedestal. Gracie wasn't thrilled about having to be Joseph (we need a boy!) but she thought her "beard" was pretty cool. Brynlee of course was thrilled to play Mary. She was also the "director". She was insisting that Mary should be kneeling while Joseph stood behind her...her sister's didn't feel the need to cooperate:)
Waiting to go see....
can hardly stand it...
Wow! Santa ate all the cookies!
Chocolate for breakfast!
Lydia got a "Vac"!
Gracie was so excited to give Jake his present. She wasn't sure what it was, all she knew was that it was a "hunting thing" so he had to like it!
And he did of course!
Here are the girls before church in there Christmas outfits. Somehow we didn't get on all together.
