Here are all the kids with their Santa hats on in front of the tree, before it was decorated :)
A day or two later we trimmed the tree!
Then we sat down at the table an put out our Little People Nativity and told the story of Jesus’ birth.
And finished the evening up with some homemade Christmas cookies (can I call it that if they came from a bag and I mixed and baked it? LOL)
(Wes feeding himself his cookie!)
This past weekend we had Michael’s aunts and uncle and cousins over and his grandmother for a Christmas celebration. Pictures are mostly of… food :)
Mike’s cousin’s daughter
Micah eating with a FORK off of a PLATE! An unusual sight :)
All 8 kids with Great- Gram!
Kristopher made a great Ginger Bread house at school!
Micah didn’t love the short days at school where there wasn’t a nap time! Brianna sat and rubbed his back while he crashed out on the couch!
And now, the house is decorated (these are all the kids’ crafts from the last week of school… in duplicate (the two boys) and triplicate (the two older girls and Wesley!)
Reading a book to Frosty and the Advent calendar
Lace with a winter scene of one of the churches from Bulgaria and a snowman that Kristopher made a few years ago
Our nativity set that the kids constantly play with and rearrange :)
Our Christmas tree- finally decorated!
Some decorations are more fun to play with…
Christmas hats, waiting for another moment to get them all out and play (it’s too HOT here! 78 today!)
