Christmas Party 2008

Every year we have a Christmas party with some of our close friends. The "original five", as we call them, all get together and we let them all reek havoc. It's so much fun! Well the original five kids has now grown to NINE and will soon be ELEVEN! This year, each of the kids had a secret pal for Christmas. We had a great time picking out just the right gifts and it was neat to see how the kids are starting to learn about the giving part of Christmas, rather than just the receiving. Aside from exchanging gifts, we ate lots of delicious food and sampled a huge assortment of Christmas goodies. It was a wonderful night!

The kids are making gingerbread men with stickers. They had a lot of fun with this activity.

This was one of my attempts at a picture of the kids all together. As you can see, I didn't have the best location. Maybe someone else got a better shot. :)

Josh and Daddy just chillin'.

We were all dressed up nice for church on Sunday and this was our sore attempt at a family Christmas photo. Kate is the only one who looks cute (which happens more often than not).

Josh is such a silly boy, here is the video to prove it.

Santa Claus

Let me just tell you, we think that Kate has gotten on Santa's good side because he sure loves her! Just check out these pictures we snapped this past weekend.

And here are couple of sweet pictures of the kids dressed up in their Christmas outfits.
