Then, we began moving into our new house on the day after Thanksgiving. We are finally settled (mostly) and ready to celebrate our first Christmas in our new house.
Then the boys participated in our annual Church Christmas Pageant. It was a committment because we practiced the entire week before and there were 5 shows that filled up our church all the way to the 3rd balcony, but the boys enjoyed every minute, and so did I. I am so blessed to be a part of such a special church and have such an awesome Church family. We had so much fun sharing in the pageant fun! They were the cutest little Christmas lights EVER! :)
We also got invited to the annual Gingerbread party, hosted by my friend, Traci's, MIL. Price was in school but Owen had a great time making his gingerbread house with his best buds.
This past week was busy with school festivities. Owens school party was first. The kids sang a little jingle for us and then we had fun eatting all the goodies.
On Thursday, Price's class did an Authors Showcase where they put on a little play, did a sing along and each one read a book that they had written and illustrated. It was so cute. Way more then I expected from a class of 5 and 6 year olds. In the little play, Price was the little boy in the "Gingerbread Man" and he did a wonderful job!
Then we had the Josh's family Christmas on Saturday night and you'll never guess who showed up........That's right, SANTA, himself!!! Their Aunt Jessica knows him personally and asked him to stop by. The boys loved sitting in his lap and wouldn't leave him alone.
This is our first day out of school and we have enjoyed it by sleeping in (at least I have) and we went to see the Chipmunk Movie with some of our best friends. We have lots of fun stuff planned for our break but mostly we will celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. I hope that I can make sure that with all the fun things going on, the most imporant reason we celebrate is to remember HIM!!!
I hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful time of celebrating with your family and friends as well.
