Merry Christmas Everyone.

Merry Christmas everyone. We've had an amazing Christmas with a house full of activity.

Here is a picture of Emily, Aurora and Jessica just before all of us left for church on Christmas Eve. We met up with Michele and Wade and the triplets. The church was packed when we got there, so luckily, the front pew was open, so I got to sit up front all by myself with all the kids. We love getting a front row seat, for all the manger and choir activity. Also, in the front seat, I get to sing as loud as I want and not one of the kids "shushes" me. They sing loud right along with me.

Then on Christmas morning, we spent over an hour opening gifts and ohhing and ahhing over all the gifts. Three families get a lot of gifts!

Here is Emily teaching Aurora the finer art of climbing stairs. As you can see, Aurora is a quick learner. She has no stairs at home, so this was fun for her, but scary for Mom.

Jessica and Aurora are sporting their nice matching PJ's. It's a good thing Jessica has long hair, it's hard to tell them apart.

Aurora totally loved all her presents. Especially the fuzzy farm with noisy animals that Auntie Donna gave her. Here she's playing with the balls that came with the pelican toy that she got.

I can't get over how beautiful Jessica is. She is so mature now.. and she looks a lot like her dad now.. NOT that he is beautiful... but oh my his big girl is for sure!
Aurora will be skipping up those stairs in no time!!
