Before writing our 2012 Christmas post, I thought I would do a brief picture recap of a few of the things we did before the big day.
We received a couple of unexpected packages in the mail and some gifts from local neighbors and friends. THANK YOU!!
Keri had two separate choir holiday concerts. I am thoroughly impressed with how well this middle school choir sounds. Her choir teacher is stellar!
Eli had a preschool holiday concert. I asked him afterward why he kept inserting random words into the songs, and he said because he likes to be funny! [He is also currently going through an I only-want-to-wear-shorts-or-rolled-up-pants stage. Such is life and the battles we choose to choose .]
Randy and I went to his work holiday party. [Note to self - Next year take a picture of *both* of us.]
Keri played Mary at our Ward Christmas Party.
Keri made potpourri (lemons, oranges, cloves, cranberries and cinnamon sticks) at an activity and we delivered some of it to our neighbors. It made our house smell heavenly when we simmered it!
We made our annual gingerbread house. A tradition in our family for the past 8 years!
