Had SOOO much fun laughing with these ladies.
Trimming the tree
Admiring our handiwork.
My favorite Christmas lights in town.
Andrew wasn't up for walking around the neighborhood,
but at least we got to drive through.
Christmas program at church
Those are my two angels, closest to the piano.
Another church's live drive-thru nativity.
with a camel you can visit on your way out!
The girls' Christmas craft class project:
cookie and cake decorating.
My five year old did this.
Sparkly new Christmas dresses.
(And their cute big bro.)
Baking Christmas goodies for friends.
And Santa. And ourselves.
In the midst of preparing our yummy Christmas Eve dinner.

When your already-tall husband has to sit on cushions
and keep his back straight,
you all of a sudden look PETITE next to him.
Am I right?
Reading and acting out the nativity.
In the absence of a donkey,
the kids used a blue office chair.
Brandon is sore afraid.
taking her job quite seriously.
Sibling gift exchange on Christmas Eve.
This was one of my favorite Christmas moments.
The kids were SO generous with each other.
And they LOVED their gifts.
There was lots of hugging,
a tackle or two,
and big smiles.

The big day
Ready to unwrap
Santa loves dental hygiene!
This was the year of the high-pitched squeal.
All three children would start screaming when a new gift was open,
It was fun.
For a while.
Tired Christmas-morning parents
I love playing Christmas songs on the piano when all of the
chaos of the morning is over.
