Live Nativity

Tonight we went downtown to the live Nativity, complete with pettyng animals. Elise loved the animals. It started to snow while we were down there. the snow just piled up on the llama and he didn't seem to mind. Love that wool. Elise even got to held baby Jesus. Inside we had cookies and cocoa, and warmed up and Corinna had her bottle. It was a good evening to reflect back on what the first Christmas was like.

Christmas Poses

Sarah, Elise & Corinna were over last night and we took a few poses in front of the tree. Luckily for us the girls cooperated and we got a few great shots of them.

A Christmas Quilt

This year I finished Winter Wonderland, and was able to get it to the quilter in time so that it could be quilted in time for Christmas. I mostly enjoyed doing the embroidery, but I am most happy that it is finished.

Ready for Christmas

Elise & Corinna has been at our house helping us get ready for Christmas. First Elise dressed Ruthie, then they tried on hats. Next Elise made some cards. It takes a lot of concentration to write your name. Then the girls played with the gingerbread dolls. Yes they are ready for Christmas!

Grandpa's Birthday

Last Thursday we drove up to Castle Rock to meet family for Gary's birthday. The trip turned out good, despite the snow in the Springs. Everyone had a good time. Tim is hiding his good time behind his menu...

Rocket liked the corn bread and honey, and Elise like the rolls. No one left hungry.
