Christmas 2012

Gifts are put away, laundry is caught up, and my house is relatively clean. So, I finally had a chance to pull all of our Christmas photos off my camera! Here is a look at our Christmas celebrations.

Eve of Christmas Eve

Then it was on to the big day!

3pm- After a beautiful children's Christmas Eve service, we went outside and took some photos with Aunt Jenn and Uncle Jade.

--Christmas Day--
6am- Jeff and I are the only ones awake. We are so excited for the girls to see what Santa brought.

6:45 am- We get the girls up :) Afton got a xylophone and sewing machine from Santa. Maisy got a scooter and talking  baby. Everyone is happy! 

8am- My Dad and Tricia come over for present exchange and Christmas breakfast.

6pm- After napping and relaxing all day, we head over to Grammy and Gramps for present exchange and Christmas Dinner.

It was a very Merry Christmas!

My Happy Place

After the events on Friday, all I wanted to do this weekend was to be with family. This is my happy place. We enjoyed the warm December weather and decorated cookies at Grammy's house.


So thankful for our blessings- little and big.

Broadway Bound

Afton made her stage acting debut on Tuesday night. After spending a semester in the "Broadway Bound" class at church, she performed "The Hard Knock Life" from Annie. Her class did an amazing job- signing and dancing! Each kid had two 'solo' lines, Afton practiced her lines over and over again before the big show.

She was confident on stage and projected her voice. 

My favorite part was how excited she was when it was all done. It reminded me of a "runner's high". She was so proud of her class and her performance!

Next semester she begins "Musical Theater". We can't wait!

In case you missed the show, I recorded the dress rehearsal. Click on the link below to see it.
