So as for the Christmas season, we had a great one. I'm going to tell about in pictures, so here goes.....
|This was later that day at the Ethel M. Chocolate factory. |
We went to see the light display and tour the factory.
|The Chocolate factory|
|Then after the chocolate factory we went to watch the live Nativity|
put on by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day. They did a really great job.
Abby and Elsa loved to pet the animals.
|The girls with Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus|
Actually his name was Nathaniel. (His mom was right
behind me) He did great on this night. Dallin and Calvin and Clint
went earlier in the week and they told me that he was crying for
most of the show.
|This was the crowd after it was over. They all wanted to go down and|
meet and take pictures with the cast. Including us.
|Elsa made sure I got a picture of her touching the sheep.|
As soon as I did, she was outta there.
|She didn't know I got this one.|
It was a goat anyway.
|The angels were amazing!|
|Elsa with a Roman soldier.|
|Of course, Ella the Elf came to our home for Christmas. Elsa left her this note|
along with a bracelet she made her.
|This was our little adventurous elf, repelling down the tree.|
|These were the new Christmas clippies I made for the girls hair.|
Now I need to make some for Valentine's day.
|Here, Abby was writing her letter to Santa. Everyone else did too,|
but for some reason I didn't get a picture of them doing it.
|This was Abby and me at the Christmas concert. We went to see|
The Desert Chorale (Voral Chorus) and The Nevada Pops (Symphony) sing and play Christmas
songs. Really put the spirit of Christmas in all of us.
|Abby receiving her Perfect Attendance award. |
A BIG accomplishment for her!
|Elsa got one too! She was so happy! |
She also got the A/B Honor Roll award!
|On Sunday before we left, we had lunch with Great Grandma Anderson.|
Uncle Rudy was there and it was nice to catch up and visit.
|Then, of course, we made candy houses|
This was Abby's.
|This was mine, (Britta's)|
|This was Elsa's.|
|Elsa also had a piano recital.|
She did such a good job.
She played "A Coventry Carol" and "Joy to the World"
|Abby was proud of the star she made on top of her house.|
Well, I hope you enjoyed our Christmas so far. I will do the rest of Christmas tomorrow.
Here is the video of us sledding with our friends. I put it on Facebook, so for all you who don't look at Facebook, Mom. This is for you. Hope the link works because I could not get the original video to upload.
