Christmas Eve... we stayed in Page and spent the night with our friends the Mallavias and the Buntings. We ate some good food, the guys played ping-pong...
We had the kids act out the Nativity. it was the first time we ever did that on Christmas Eve, and i really liked it. i think we may have to add that to our lists of traditions.
Trevor and Samantha as Joseph and Mary.
Katelyn and Natalie as the shepards.
Christmas Morning!! Katie and Ann were happy to be awake... Sam and Lex were a little annoyed about the whole situation!!
another big highlight was the 3 bigger girls all got rollerblades. now... isn't that the most reasonable thing a kid could ask for?!?!? they have already put about 200 miles on them! grandma and grandpa sullivan gave the 2 big girls church clothes which they were ecstatic about (they looked homeless at church up to that point)! Samantha got a stash of puzzles which have been a lifesaver.
It was a great Christmas. I love being home and just doing our own thing. And... most importantly i love remembering the birth of the Savior. It is a great time of year!
