'Twas The Night Before Christmas. . .

Right now it's just Gwen and I all through the house! Tim has been driving the kids around delivering treats to their friends. He took Gwen earlier with the little boys to give her nursery teachers something. The little boys are sledding, again. Pretty much every day! We lost a sled and broke one so we will need to get some more but not today! Tim had to go to the store this morning for vacuum bags--bummer! He is such a trooper. It's 2:30 PM and I'm still in my jammies. I have been busy with helping organize the kids and their treats (just soda and popcorn). I like them to do it today because they think less about themselves for a little while! It does make today hectic but I also don't want anyone to feel obligated to give my kids anything either! It's their chance to really think of others--they buy the treats for their friends. Sorry I am rambling. We have had some fun things happen lately in our festivities. Sunday we celebrated my niece Holly's first birthday, we acted out the Nativity as part of that night, Monday we had the Pew side over for Family Night organized by Erika (our niece)--we sledded, ate dinner, painted cookies and had a lesson, last night we gathered with the Louw side for Joseph Smith's birthday & our white elephant party. It has been just a great experience overall and makes me so grateful to have family nearby! I will include some photos from these fun times--to get caught up before tomorrow! Have a very Merry Christmas!

PS The last photo is Emily and Gwen in their Christmas dresses.
