Christmas Eve Traditions


We love our Christmas Eve tradition of inviting friends over for French dip sandwiches and then reenacting the Nativity. We had great sports this year, and it was so much fun. 
Our angels:
 The 3 wise men and King Harrod
 Shepard and her sheep
 Joseph, Mary, and baby Jesus
 Is he not the cutest angel??

Putting up the Tree


One of my favorite days of the year. I really love putting up the Christmas decorations and decorating the tree.

Marbles is always fun, but going with Dad is a special treat.

Durham Science Museum


While Ken's parents were here, we went to the Durham Science Museum one day. Always a favorite place to visit and it was so fun to have Grandpa and Grandma Carlile with us.

Abraham's Baptism Day


We were so proud of Abraham for choosing to be baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It was such a wonderful day. We were so lucky to have my Dad and Ken's parents be there to celebrate with us. My sister Tami and her family were able to join us as well. It is a day we will never forget.

Lego Birthday Party


We aren't typically big friend birthday party throwers. In fact, this is the first one we've ever done, but 8 is a very special birthday, so we went for it. We had Lego relay races, Lego Bingo, and Minecraft art. We ate Lego Jigglers and of course a Lego Birthday cake. It was a lot of fun, but I'm happy to wait until someone else turns 8 to do it again.
