It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

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 :)

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!)
