Merry Christmas Eve everyone! Just a few more things that we have been doing to celebrate Christmas this year:
We went to a living Nativity at a nearby church. They had a series of dramatized scenes about the Nativity story that you walked through. It was a little long for us I think, but a nice way to remember what the Christmas season is all about. Here is Julia at the end with the living Nativity scene. Baby Jesus was a doll though!
Micah stole my phone during the King Harod and the Wise Men scene and took a bunch of selfies.
We made orange chocolate Christmas tree suckers. Orange because it was on sale after Halloween. Micah learned a new word because of it, "Sucker." He would walk into the kitchen where we had them displayed until they were gone and yell, "Sucker Sucker Sucker!"
Not really Christmasy, but Micah decided one morning that he was going to make us pancakes.
The the Winnie The Pooh outfit that the other two wore at 6 months old.
Making gingerbread houses. Again, Micah watched Julia and followed right along decorating.
And last, for FHE last night we drove around and saw the lights in Claremont, while eating popcorn and drinking hot chocolate. This house has music to go along with the light display, so we let the kids out of their car seats and they joined us in the front seat to watch the show.
