It began with finding the perfect tree while my family was in town.
And continued with the requisite cookie making.
Dallin and Janelle and their three girls drove all the way from Indiana to spend Christmas with us! They spent most of the time on the couch reading. Just kidding. Actually, they cleaned my house and cooked multiple meals, including a gourmet Christmas dinner. And Janelle managed to plow through the entire Hunger Games trilogy.
The Nativity program was stellar. With D&J’s identical twin girls, plus Dorothy’s cache of baby dolls, we had several options for the part of baby Jesus.
Christmas morning brought its own magic, as it always does. Another fantastic year!
