|The season doesn't really start until we've seen the kids' Christmas concert|
and school is officially out. Jared's class performed "Mary Had a Baby"
on recorders as well as singing several other songs between scenes of the play.
|This was my daughter's first experience as one of the lead roles in the play. |
She seemed to be very comfortable up there and did a very good job
of her lines.
|Another game had us all sliding gingerbread men off our foreheads, down |
our face and into our mouths. Most of us were unable to do this, Jared
and Auntie Brenda were the only successful ones.
|After our traditional dinner on Christmas Eve, Santa stopped for a short |
visit before heading on his trip around the world. This year, he brought a
naughty and nice list and had good reasons to go with his decisions.
|Even Daddy took a turn on Santa's lap. Poor, poor Santa. What he doesn't|
put up with ...
|Kaitlynn was very happy with her new stereo, and quickly ran off to |
rearrange her bedroom to make room for it.
|Bear received a giant chewy Kong and instantly fell in love with it. He |
grabbed it and walked around the house making funny, happy grunting
|He took it everywhere with him, putting it down for only a few seconds to |
eat some snow.
