Christmas Eve

We had our annual Christmas eve party at Jeff's aunts house. It is really fun with lots of great food. Every year the kids also get to act out the Nativity scene. This year Ryan was Joseph, kaylee was an angel and Taylor was Mary. We also played a few fun group games and did a white elephant gift exchange. Before the party we did our own traditions. The kids opened up their Christmas Jammies, and a Christmas book. We also read the story of Christ's birth out of the bible and set up our nativity set. When we got home from the party we got on our Christmas jams and read our story and went to bed. This is our annual Christmas eve pic on the stairs. One of these days I will post the pictures from each year that we have done this. I think It will be 8 years in a row.

Tyler was a Donkey and Taylor(Mary) rode in on his back with the help of Ryan(Joseph)

Kaylee had her first clogging performance on Saturday. She did such a good job. It was so fun to see her get up there and do it without being too nervous. She is really growing up. The performance was really short and I wondered if it was worth all the time, and effort. We had to have the black pants, socks, and a blue bow. When it was all over Kaylee told me that she wanted to do it again. I guess it was worth it since she loved doing it.

If you can't tell Kaylee is the one in the middle front. She is playing with her hair and waves at the start.

Girls Scrapbook weekend

In November a group of Scrapbooking friends and I went up to Jackson for the weekend. We spent the entire weekend inside working on scrapbooks, talking, laughing, eating, and watching movies. It is so great to have such a wonderful group of friends. Our husbands were joking about how much scrapbooking we really got done. We worked nonstop both days. I scrapbook online and I completed all of 2006. It was a fun weekend.
