Christmas Time

We started our Christmas time with the Parade of Lights in Denver this year.

Ugly Sweater Party

Our ward had an ugly sweater christmas party and Gabi and I decided to go for the 1st prize. So bought matching women's cardigans and color coordinated our turtle necks and won 1st prize. Well worth it.

Usually on Christmas Eve we read the story of the Birth of the Savior from the Bible but this year we reenacted it. This is a tradition for Kate and Aaron so parts were given and costumes were found. I think we did a pretty great job.

Mary and Joseph and baby

Angel and narrator


Shepherds and sheep

The whole cast (except one wisemen to take the picture)

I realize that most people say this but I really do have the greatest family. I love being an Aunt and I have a greatest nephews and niece. I have been lucky this year to be able to spend a lot of time with them with visits to California, Kansas, and Utah for a baby blessing. They change so fast. Here are some of my favorite pictures of Auntie time.

My computer has this program that makes funny pictures. We were entertained for almost an hour. These are some of my favorites

I didn't know you had one as well. I love the reenactments and the costumes! By the way, I can see why you won the sweater contest. Although I have seen some of those on some elementary teachers. I swear I will never wear one.
