Loving the memories!

We actually had a more mellow holiday season this year. This was definitely welcomed by us! Well, let me clarify. Christmas week is filled with traditions for us each year. We love it. We wouldn't have it any other way! But the month of December is often a busy season for us going to festivities and get togethers to celebrate the spirit of the season. This year, we only had one Christmas party to go to. It was a nice, welcomed changed. Maybe it is preparing us for a CRAZY, busy 2011. Who knows?? :)

This Christmas party was at Bill and Linda's friends house. It was so sweet of them to include the three of us in the fun.

Big Papa and Aubrey Rose ready to watch the true Christmas story performance. A tradition for over 30 years!!! They reenact baby Jesus' birth. It was ADORABLE!!!

Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem. Mary give birth to God's son. There was no room for them in the inn. The beautiful angels appeared saying "Glory to God in the highest!"
The shepherds visited glorifying and praising God.
The three wise men followed the bright star and came bearing gifts...
And he shall be called Jesus!
For over 30 years they have taken a "cast" picture. :) Here is Christmas 2010... Our favorite wise men and angel. :)
Auntie Blair and Aubrey Rose
After the performance we all gathered around the piano and sang Christmas carols. They had jingle bells, Santa hats, elf hats, reindeer ears, oh and microphones (kitchen cooking utensils) was adorable!
Aubrey made some adorable friends too...
Jingle bells!

We had a great time! Here is everyone gathered around the piano singing fun Christmas carols. Aubrey was loving it!

We loved being apart of the fun!
