Graham Cracker Houses, Lights...


We have had another fun week of Christmas activities. Monday, we went to my Aunt Leslie's for dinner, to make graham cracker houses and the annual white elephant exchange. It was a ton of fun as you can see from the collage and we got home late. Tuesday I took the kids (minus Taran who had a study group and Timo who had Jr Jazz practice) to the lights at Thanksgiving Point. Teresa and my dad joined us. We had a lot of fun again and on the way home Teresa took us by a house whose lights were synchronized to music you could tune in on your radio. It was amazing and free--we paid $8 to see the lights at Thanksgiving Point! Thursday night was Taran's choir concert and it was very good but late. As you can see in the collage both grandparents were able to make it. Friday night Timo and his friends had their annual white elephant which was entertaining, they played games and watched Trapped in Paradise (edited w/out swearing)! Saturday was Gwen's dove performance in The Little Match Girl. She was cute and actually did some dancing. Very fun! And both grandparents came but I forgot to get a photo of that. We are so lucky to live near family it has been a great Christmas season! Rejoicing in the birth of Jesus Christ! I can't believe Christmas is this week! Although I plan to wrap more than one present this week! Hope your week isn't too stressful but full of the true meaning of Christmas... the love of our Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ!
