We are back from visiting my in-laws, so I am trying to catch up on blogging. We had a really nice trip, but it's always good to be home again. Be sure to also check out the pictures from our kids' Nativity play further down the page. It's new.
On Christmas Eve, we had lunch-dinner (what do you call a meal at 2 pm?) with a family from church. Afterwards, we went to another family's house for cookies and hot chocolate, which was pretty much our dinner. There was several other families there, so there was lots of talking and playing, and a game of Phase 10 for the moms. We had crackers and cheese when we got home, before opening the pj gifts and settling in for a movie. So did not calm down our children.
First up- a picture of our (very dry and very dead) Christmas tree before Ryan and I went to bed on Christmas Eve.
Elizabeth loves soft things.
This picture of Elizabeth's face cracks me up. She had this expression on her face almost every time she opened any of her gifts. I was just trying to get a picture of Emma with her first CD player.
After lunch, we went outside and played in the snow. Hello white Christmas! (Emma credits watching "White Christmas" before bed Christmas Eve for the weather pattern.)
