CHRISTMAS 2013 MEMORIES


Well I can't believe it's already come and gone!  Last week was a whirlwind of fun.  I'm still taking some time away from the blog this week, but I wanted to share some Christmas photos, mostly for my benefit!

We started the week before with concerts and parties.  First, my little percussionist's Middle School band concert-


and then our last elementary school Christmas party ever!


We always host our family after our church's Christmas Eve service, and of course I forgot to take any pictures that evening.  I did get a good night time photo of the tree, though.


Christmas Morning at our house-



Next we headed out to Ray's parents' house. Nonnie always does some sort of Christmas play with all of the grandkids, and this year it was the ABC's of Christmas.


And, they all participate in a craft every year, regardless of how old they've become.  This year they made light bulb snowmen ornaments.


The next day we snapped the photo in front of our tree that we forgot to do the day before, 


and then celebrated Christmas at my parents' house.  Every year the grandkids get to sprinkle the snow on Bree's Snow Village.



I couldn't resist throwing in Ninja Boy...he totally owned it!


We ended the day with a game like Headbands but played with an iPhone.  Fun for all!


I hope you had a blessed Christmas!  See you later in the week...maybe!

P.S.  You may not have noticed, but lots of bloggers including me have been having problems with their search bar not working.  I loaded up a new version and now we're all set!  So, if you're looking for something in particular, try the Google search at the top of my sidebar.  I hope it helps!
