Christmas Fun!

We had a really wonderful Christmas Eve/Day with my family. We did the traditional church service, then family time on Christmas Eve. Then we came home and crashed! Then we woke up Christmas morning with Hayden (Jack was still sleeping) and read the Christmas Story and prayed together. Then....we saw what Santa brought! Here's some pics of our time together...

Trying to get a family picture was nearly impossible...


These are some of my favorite Christmas ornaments

My grandparents used to always give us kids an ornament. This is a sheep with a favorite scripture attached...


H's preschool ornament

J's first Christmas



And then there was Thomas...Hayden asked Santa for Thomas the Tank Engine...and he got it! As soon as he opened the box with trains in it...we lost him. He seriously played with the trains for about 8 hours yesterday, and first thing this morning he said, Can we get out the trains?







And Jack in a comatose chocolate state...

sounds like Christmas was grand! it was here too... I'll have to tell you about it sometime.
Got your message on my blog: no, I don't myspace any more than I post (just check it b/c my sibs use it, really). The lack-of-posting thing should change here soon. I'm done with one of my school programs and am about to cut some other things back so the spring should be MUCH better.
I'm recruiting for my team to Nepal this summer... you guys wanna come along?!? ;)
Lets have a phone date soon, k? Not before Saturday though (29th) b/c I move that day - to a basement apartment here in town - landlords are selling our place. More news when we connect by phone! love you!!!!
