The Nativity and More

The day after Christmas we celebrated the "Christmas" dinner and Nativity. My mom broke out some awesome costumes and all the kids looked great. We even had the newest grandchild Benjamin play the baby Jesus. He is so tiny you can't even see him in the picture. Nora was a donkey and really played up her part. You can see her playing stubborn on the floor in the second picture. Afterwards, fun Aunt Katie made balloon animals and hats for the kids. We have some amazing talent in our family.

I have always loved the idea of having kids act out the nativity. It looks like your family has some great traditions. It also looks like you got some fun gifts this year. I am glad you guys had a nice Christmas.

Do you remember dressing up when we were kids and acting out the Christmas story at your house?!?!? I actually found these pictures a couple days ago. I love how the grandchildren carry on the tradition now! How special!

Wow! Your mom has some pretty cool costumes! Wish we were able to see you guys this Christmas! We'll definitely have to plan better for the next time (if we're still here :(

Merry Christmas! I looks like you had a great one. I love Nora the donkey. I am sure she was excellent. Spencer, sounds like you did a wonderful job filling your wife's wish list. Way to go! Good luck with the big New Year's Eve party.

Merry belated Christmas! I love the family picture in front of the tree on Christmas morning...such a cute little bunch of people! Fun to be around family and cousins - that is the only sad part about our Christmas this year.
