It wouldn't be a Christmas Parade without Santa!
Nelson's NJHS group volunteered some time to ring the bell for the Salvation Army. Nelson decided to play the trombone during his shift.
After Thanksgiving my sister in laws and I all made crafts together. This is one of them that I had to take home to finish. I thought it turned out pretty good!
We got to watch Annie in her ballet class for a little mini recital. She is doing really well in her class. She has the best splits!
I was in charge of our ward Christmas party this year. We made lots of snowflakes and hung them from ceiling in the gym for the decorations. I had to take a picture since I was so excited about how it turned out.
Candy Cane the elf came to stay with us for the month of December. She ended up in all sorts of crazy places.
For our last family night before Christmas we decorated gingerbread houses. Here's Nelson's.
We decided to sign up for a bell ring shift ourselves! Annie and Nelson came to help me. Nelson's trombone playing was a big hit! People also loved Annie's elf hat and her cute "Merry Christmas" greeting. We had a great time. I think we'll try to do it again next year.
