This year, we hosted my family for Christmas on New Year's Day. Our family is getting big...17 of us now! I set up 2 long tables in our family room so we can all sit together.
Binga brought a craft for all the kids to do...making glitter ornaments! It was a mess, but the kids had fun. Except they all forgot to take their ornaments home!!
Binga paid Anna $0.50 to rub her feet :)
Hudson taught Jacob how to play Bunco.
Mia got bored one afternoon, so she decided to put together a play for the kids to put on for us. It was....controlled chaos! But the kids were really cute :)
Rhys didn't have an assigned part...she just kind of stepped in wherever she wanted. ;)
Tate (3 yrs old) the sheep
Kaedyn the inn keeper
The stable scene with Joseph (Bryce), Mary (Anna), the cow (Isaac) and the sheep (Tate).
Rhys wanted a ride on the donkey. :)
Jacob & Hudson, the shepherds.
Kaedyn, now as the angel of the Lord, telling the shepherds the good news!
Hudson, Jacob, and Kaedyn as the 3 wisemen.
The cow lost part of his costume...
Gift time :) Papa & Binga spoiled the grandkids :) and all the cousins drew names.
My absolute favorite gift Jacob got... "Now we're cooking with peanut oil" HAHAHA!!!
Bryce had Jacob's name and got him a Nerf gun...
I think he likes it...
Isaac got a cowboy costume from Papa & Binga. He's rarely been without it since! He loves it and he is the absolute cutest cowboy I've ever seen!!
AND a jewelry box! AND another watch!!
Papa & Binga gave Mia cash, but they made her go on a scavenger hunt for it! :)
Poot out yur hands!!!
By the next morning, she'd already finished one of her books. She got more than a dozen books over the week and I'm sure she'll have most of them ready before February gets here!!
