Christmas with our Family

This year Christmas was spread out over a whole week!! Caren was home the weekend before Christmas, so we had Christmas with her and the rest of my family on Monday. Then Christmas Eve was a full house with 10 have dinner at my house before heading to church with 12 of our family all in attendance. Following the Christmas Eve service we got to provide a friend with her Christmas Gift from her husband with a small live nativity in her front year. We had Mary, Jospeh and baby Jesus, 3 shepherds, 2 angels and a narrator and a goat (no one has sheep in our family so we have to make due and use goats) This was really cool with it being Christmas Eve- it was a neat way to remember the real reason for the season.

Christmas Day we spent at home, the boys were busy assembling their new garden wagon to haul supplies to the barn and shooting each other with rubberband guns. Gary's parents came and spend the day with us too and it was a nice relaxing day.

You mean they know how to read the directions
Friday we went back to my parent's for Christmas with the Walls' side of the family and you just never know what might happen there.

Oh it's a heat lamp- not a hat, but it looks so good!
And Finally on Monday we were able to get together with the Schick side of the family and exchange gifts and spend the day together.

I must say it is kind of nice to be able to spread out the events into several days rather than cram it all into a short period of time.
