Our Christmas Eve

Our Christmas Eve was a lot of fun. We went to our good friends house (the Nelson's) and made homemade pizza. The kids were enjoying the food and having fun when I brought down the costume box to get them all ready for re-enacting the Christmas story. Everyone was a good sport (even though they had to tell me at least 10 times that they were getting too old to do this).

Catherine played the part of Mary with Troy being the donkey.
Camden was Joseph (and studied his part intently).
Owen played the part of baby Jesus.
Madelyn was the angel (and Julianne was the narrator)
Adam, Hunter, and Trent were the three wise men (and this time Troy was the camel)
Then we came home, read Luke 2 and Matthew 2 and opened our Christmas jammies.
Then we tried to get the kids all settled down for a long winter's nap! It wasn't easy. This was a bunch of excited kids. It is so fun to have kids at Christmas! Merry Christmas!
