We had a great Christmas! Fun and busy and tiring, and I'm sad to see the vacation end. This post is FULL of pictures. But when you've got five kids enjoying holidays...well, the camera doesn't sit still for long.
Here is Paige at her 2nd grade sing-a-long.
And Corinne at her 5th grade sing-a-long. The camera died after one picture so this is the closest I have. Front row in a green shirt.
Here is Corinne, as a shepherd at our ward Christmas party, making her way to the stable. You can see that it really was crowded in Bethlehem that evening.
We had our annual Felt Christmas Party at Jake and Lisa's this year. It was a fun evening, and the kids love exchanging gifts with their cousins. Claire got a phone and a crown.
Nicole and Corinne at the party.
Spencer and Koler playing with Spencer's new John Deere.
Paige and Mayci with the new Lite Brite
On Christmas Eve, Grandma Pat and Grandma and Grandpa Lindhardt came for dinner. Here is Pat giving Spencer a photography lesson.
We also held a small cello/violin/piano recital. Good sports, these two!
Matt and Nicole. (He looks tired, but being Christmas Eve, his night is just beginning. Muwah-hahaha!!)
After putting on their new jammies, they all promptly fell asleep.
Treats for Santa and his eight plus one reindeer. Individual servings, of course.
All lined up on Christmas morning for the big reveal!
The frenzy begins.
Santa ate his treats!
Spencer with his new gun.
Nicole and her new set of pastels.
This is Spencer's new piggy bank. Don't try to tell that to Claire, though.
