helped them set up their Nativity collection..

|Diddles' teacher served her mission in Holland, and she had the kids make paper shoes to leave out in the hallway, and learn a Sinterklaaus song. They were so excited to get chocolate letters in their shoes! Her teacher is amazing! |
We went to this amazing stake Christmas party and Stewart and Annette's ward building. It was A Country Christmas, complete with hay rides, a band, cinnamon rolls, huevos rancheros, hot cocoa bar, photo booth, and so much more. We had so much fun!
Fun Christmas find: Marie and Emily never had matching stockings with the rest of us. I decided to search on Ebay and see if I could possibly find one with the old pattern, and found them! Mom worked on it during the long days in the hospital, and it was fun to see all the stockings hanging in a row.
We had a cookie exchange and our traditional Nativity Pageant. It was fun to be there for that! We usually had to miss it.
Quite possibly the funnest time was Christmas Day, after all the presents had been opened, and the toys had been played with, and the boredom set in. We all converged on Mom and Dad's house for games and puzzles.
