Christmas Eve! We started the day with our tradition of breakfast with our good neighbors. I didn't get any pictures, but it was lots of fun. We are very blessed to have such good friends.
We continued the day with more tradition...going to see a movie as a family. We rarely do this during the year, so it is a real treat when we get to do it. What movie did we see: The Hobbit!!! We have been counting the days until we could see it.
We loved it!
It is a fantastic movie with the classic fight of good against evil.
We loved everything about it, but especially the message that good must work together against overwhelming odds....and that evil will be defeated!
After the movie we met at the cemetery to light candles and remember loved ones that have passed on.
We miss them!
After the cemetery we headed to Grandma and Grandpa's for our tradition of reading the scriptures and acting out the nativity.
We found evidence on Grandma's computer that Moms and Dads are in cohorts with Santa..
and his elves!
Getting dressed for the nativity...facial hair is a fun dress up!
Mary and Joseph with baby Jesus.
The nativity scene was acted out as Grandpa read from the scriptures.
We are ready for Christmas!
But first the kids got to open their Christmas pajamas.
Our last Christmas with our missionary...at least for two years!!
On Christmas Eve pajamas are cool!
We are ready for Christmas day....now if we could just fall asleep!!
