December 1st to Christmas

We started out our Christmas season with the Annual Christmas Parade downtown.

The Grinch

It wouldn't be a Christmas Parade without Santa!

Kambree is in the school choir and we went to listen to her perform her Christmas program.

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!

Luke and I attended Kambree's class Christmas party. They started off the party with a relay race.

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.

A few more funny things that Candy Cane did.

It really is the most wonderful time of the year!

Love your decorations at the church. Your gingerbread houses look great, Brad's pic is especially appetizing
