On Sunday I offered #3 some of these crackers. It was so funny because instead of just taking the crackers he went to the refrigerator. I opened the fridge and he got.....

I happen to love taking pictures, but when it comes to Christmas I rarely take many. I find that when I start taking pictures I remove myself from the scene. I like being there with my family and therefore we don't get many pictures. Here are a few from our morning.
Christmas Undies for the boys
Talking to my parents with TokBox and letting them see the boys open their gift which was a Wii.

My coworker gives so much to our family. She loves on my boys and graciously made these blankets for them. She is the same one who made the quilt for #4. So all four boys now have a blanket made by her. The boys loved it and #2 said it was the reason he slept in so well :)

Another performance for the children's choirs at our old church. I have the boys go to missions and music on Wednesday nights. Two things which I highly love and can be passionate about. We were able to go and hear our children singing. #2 actually sang which I was wondering if he would, but you have to love the hands in the sleeves. #1 is all about a performance and did a great job. I love the costumes they were able to dress in and create a beautiful picture of the birth of Christ.

I came outside today to find my boys playing broom ball. Has anyone taught them this kind of game? No, they were able to think it all up on their own. Just goes to show when boys play there must be a ball and something to hit it with.

#1 is in his 2nd year of piano. Each year he has two recitals, a Christmas one and the end of the year one. He did a superb job playing his four songs. Piano is not his favorite thing. He does like it, but mom will not let him learn another instrument until we have a few years of piano underway. He is musically gifted and we love hearing him play on his own. For myself, I recall countless hours of driving my own family crazy with practicing or just playing to get out frustrations or boredom. He will thank me later:)

I have to admit I have had a hard time getting with it this year. Maybe because stores put out Christmas so early now that I tell myself to ignore it and once it finally is here I am caught off guard. So we have been trying to get into the season now that it is here. One of the best ways for us is to head downtown for the lighting of the Mission Inn. It was so much fun. The fireworks were great, but #3 didn't enjoy them. He was scared. We then attempted to walk around the Inn, but it was too cold and windy. We also were getting some whiny boys. We went home lit a fire to warm ourselves up.
