With Christmas becoming a blur and sliding into the rearview mirror I thought I would post some pictures of some of the memories and things my girls had fun with this Christmas season…
Christmas began with the trip to see the Christmas Lights at the Zoo
We all took in a Christmas Play downtown in the historic Dock Street Theater,
It was by our favorite 1st grader, and her name starts with J and that stands for none other
than Junie B. Jones herself!
The kids had a coupla skirmishes with LAnA, our Santa’s elf.
Here, she helped herself to the chocolate covered popcorn overnight.
And while I understand we are not supposed to touch her (or she flies back to the North Pole) I did take the liberty to reseal the popcorn to help with its freshness.
Well LAnA did not take too kindly to that !
(she tends to overreact sometimes)
And picked up the cheese knife let us know not to touch her things any more!
Well Christmas eve came.
The girls had parts in their church’s Christmas story performance.
Skylar played Mary…
Little D. played and an Angel..
Seriously, that’s what they cast her for.
And because of the numbers of youth in our church I was even cast (voluntold) as a Wiseman!
I thought that role may really require some acting on my part…
But, in the end, I did not have a single line;
just gifts to give
the play went off without a hitch!
And I was told I looked very Regal!
I looked like Yule Brenner!
But felt like the King of Somewear Hot…..
but thats another season altogether…
Christmas Eve came…
We got the kids all snuggled in bed and so Santa went to work…
He left the downstairs looking something like this that evening…
Christmas morning looked like this…
Then they received some gifts from their Grandma, Aunts and Uncles…
These spoiled girls were begging for more gifts to open…
But truly, they had all they could handle!
This time of year is all about Love and Joy and honoring our Son.
And while Christmas’s may come and go, making memories will last forever!
Make some Memories everyone!
Give someone a hug!
The season of giving and love.
Merry Christmas everyone!!
