We've spent Christmas break shuffling around to all of my families' houses for parties, games, late nights, etc. My parents recently moved again into the same house we bought when we first moved back to Utah in December 1999. It's been fun going back to one of my childhood homes, though I still miss our old house my parents moved from a few years ago.
Brooklyn and Matt were in Morgan with his family, so she facetimed in to see him. :))
We ate food and hung around until we had to go back home for a cousins dinner with all of Ryan's cousins. We had a cousins Thanksgiving last month and it was so fun that we wanted to do it for Christmas too. It's been so fun having them back in Utah.
After we ate, we all dressed up in the costumes my family used growing up (plus a few I've added to the collection) for the Nativity story.
Norah played Mary, and Janel played the donkey haha
Jake played Joseph and everyone had a script so he helped Norah out during her lines. Notice her cute pregnant belly 😂
Baby Henry woke up from his nap just in time to play baby Jesus.
Callie as the angel, proclaiming the great news
And everyone coming to worship Jesus
Look at this good looking cast!
Ryan, Lucy, Nick, Jake, Caleb, Aunt Audrey
Janel, Jane, Me, Great Grandma, Callie, Henry, Amy, Norah
All the cousins
Once we wrestled the kids into bed, we got out our white elephant gifts for the gift exchange. It was so fun and everyone brought such hilarious things. I ended up with a Justin Bieber tank top from Callie 😂
Since Ryan and I were sort of procrastinators with wrapping gifts, we ended up staying up until 2:00am getting everything ready. I was so tired, but really excited to see the girls' reaction in the morning! It was such a fun night with some of my favorite people ever!
