Christmas Part I

Of Course Christmas-Time is one of our favorite times as a family!
We did our traditional Christmas Nativity Pageant for Christmas Eve
(L to R bottom: Ryland the Donkey, Dacie as Mary, Big John as Joseph, Rhett as Baby Jesus, Sterling as a wise man, Colton as a king-fu wise man
L to R top: Dan the angel, Cara as the shepherds
Not pictured: Mom as the narrator)

We rang the bell for Salvation Army one warm evening as a family, all adorned in Christmas hats and all!
Saw some beautiful sunrises
Had church parties and programs to get us in the mood
Just Relaxed & Hung Out!

AND goofed off
AND ate

Had Sleepovers under the tree with friends
(Ryland filled his jar and had his friend Ashton sleep over as a reward)

Made Grandma Roth Sugar Cookies
and sweets and presents we delivered to friends

This is probably my favorite picture from Christmas...Cara was so "afraid" of the angel of the Lord.

Our holidays lacked nothing
We were happy!
