Christmas 2011

Here it is February and I haven't even blogged about Christmas yet, I am so far behind I know!!  The truth is that the last 3 months have been busy, like really busy. The Holidays are busy times in general and with my photography business it's also the busiest time for me. I feel terrible that my family blog has fell to the wayside, but I have just been tired and honestly don't feel that too many check in these days anyways. But for my own family, I need to get back on the wagon and capture these times.

We made out first gingerbread house...

We were lucky to have lots of family here for the Holiday. Grandma Carole, Uncle Ted, Kristin, Monty and the kids all joined us for Christmas. I was bad about taking pictures this year. I decided to just relax and enjoy it most of the time.

Ryan read his annual Christmas letter.

 Chloe still loves the babies!

The kids performed the annual Nativity Story.
 Chloe got to be the angle this year and Christian a wise man.

Santa was good to all of us this year...

 Christian's gift to daddy.

Christian's school Christmas progam

One thing I really love about Christian's school are all the extra activities that they do for the students and family. One of those being a Christmas program. Each class participates with a song and everyone is also invited to try out for lead roles in the play if they want to.

Last year Christian wasn't able to participate because it was the same night as our Church Christmas party and we were in charge of Santa. This broke his heart! So I vowed that this year he would be part of it no matter what and he was.

He was amazing! He was the star for sure and glowing as bright and happy as could be. We were sure proud.

His class sang Rosie the Red Nosed Reindeer (it went along with the play). :) I actually didn't bring my camera along so these are from another parent.
