Christmas 2010

What a great Christmas we had this year!! It started with a number of weeks of practice for Ryan and Kyle for the Christmas Eve service at church. It was so fun to see the kids get into the songs this year and the true spirit of Christmas.

Our church does such a great job of including the kids into the celebration. Every year the church hosts a family friendly kids service Christmas Eve and all the kids get to be part of the nativity. This year Kyle as a shepherd and Ryan as wise man. Kyle even helped the pastor with the sermon, he did a great job. As our tradition, we celebrated Baby Jesus' birthday with singing happy birthday Jesus and blowing out a candle in a Hostess Cupcake. The kids love it and sure makes dessert easy on Christmas Eve.

We were home for Christmas morning this year again. Papa and Dee Dee were with us to enjoy the excitement of Christmas morning. My brother Matt and sister-in-law Tomeaka join us also via Skype from the Cayman Islands. The boys have a great time opening presents even, Brady loved it. Santa this year brought all the boys new sleds and we had fun taking them out for a test ride Christmas day after all the present opening.
(this was the inside dry run we hit the sledding hill later)
