Annual Christmas Lights Trip

We went for our annual trip to Welton Park last night.
The lights were as always very pretty. It was extra cold this year.

(If you look really close at Joshua's hands, you can see a new trend..........a sock on one hand and a glove on the other. One glove got lost on the way there, be we found it in the driveway when we returned.)

Christmas Play

Saturday night and Sunday morning, we had our Christmas play at church. It was wonderful once again. Everyone did a really good for our family......Matt was awesome on the drums and John did a wonderful job on his solo. There were a couple of technical problems but it worked out just fine.
Here is a photo of all the kids singing at the beginning of the play. Joseph is on the first row on the left(third person) and John is on the third row on the right side(fifth person from the right).

Here is a picture of John in the small singing group. They sang Tell Me the Story. Doesn't he look so handsome and grown up in his shirt and tie?

Christmas Cookies

The boys had fun decorating cookies today. They turned out really good.
Joseph really likes to put on the gum drops...........I mean he REALLY likes to put them on. His one cookie had 6 gum drops on it's face. You can see it in the bottom left corner.

Mommy had fun too........

Family Photo

It's always a challenge for us to get a good family photo. There is always someone who is not looking at the camera or in my case making a really crazy face. This year was not different. Here are a couple of takes.
