Christmas Eve

This Christmas Eve was a little different from those in the past.  Nice though.  Susan and Ed were leaving right after Christmas to go back to Quartzite so they asked if we could do it here.  We had no problem with that.  We had  Lasagna that was left over from the night before, and ordered some pizzas just in case.  We invited Courtney Hammond's family as they didn't have anything planned either.  We had a nice dinner. Then we had a religious presentation where we watched some videos about Jesus and his life from different perspectives.  Mary, Joseph, The Inn Keeper, a Shepherd and Jesus himself.  Then we opened gifts for the family.  Mine got jammies as usual.    Makae and Skyler came and then they had to leave to go to a friends house where they were spending Christmas so we  didn't get much time with them, but it was nice that she came.  I felt bad she didn't stay.  But..... I guess things move slowly.  It was a really nice evening and filled with love and the spirit.

This is Olin and Ella at their house on Christmas Eve.
Olin had a birthday so this is the card I made him and he got a gift to go get ice cream in it.  He was pretty excited.
I gave all of the little kids on both sides books that we don't read anymore.  They were all in really good condition as they only got out at Christmas, so they were practically new.  Meagan sent this too me of the kids opening theirs, and even told me that Sylvie insisted on listening to the music that went with hers, and having the book read to her before she went to bed.
Alex, patiently waiting for his pizza!!

Courtney is perfect for Ethan.  They both love to pull funny faces.
