2014 Blue Jeans Week 52--Christmas

Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!  Our week was great.  Filled with a birthday, lots of music, good food, and family.  We are so grateful for our Savior Jesus Christ who gave the best gift of Himself for us.  He is the reason for the season.  Here is a look at our week. . .
The girls were practicing a number to play Christmas Eve at our neighbor's house and at our house.  Christmas Eve is full of lots of music at our house.

In between all the Christmas stuff, we had a birthday!  Miss A turned 17.  SEVENTEEN!!!  When did that happen?  She is an amazing girl who blesses our family so much!  Sure love you Miss A!

Our tradition of sleeping by the Christmas tree on the 23rd.

The girls got Mr J in to help them on their musical number of "A little Drummer boy" with Mr J being the drummer boy :)  It was a beautiful number!

Christmas Eve--having fun singing songs with Grandpa!

One of many musical numbers Christmas Eve was a duet by these two.

Our Nativity play is always a highlight of the evening!

Ending the night with the kids opening one present--which is new PJ's

Our Christmas countdown candle made it to the 24th!  

Hello Christmas morning!

Miss E must have been really good because she got the ipod she had been wanting :)

A blanket I made for Ben.

Miss O loves markers!

Ben making our traditional Christmas morning breakfast of ebelskivers--A Danish tradition he got from his Dad who served his mission there.

And more Christmas fun at Nana and Grandpa's later in the day.  What a fun Christmas Day!

  1. Looks like a wonderfully fun Christmas week! Cute picture of you and Ben. Love the tradition of sleeping by the tree. My boys would be all over that. Happy birthday to miss A! 17!!! She's a beautiful young woman and that's a great idea to have an ice-cream bar instead of just cake. Glad you had such a fun- filled holiday. Enjoy your new year.
