Christmas Eve with the Rogers Family

Once again, we hosted Christmas Eve at our house and Nana, Pop, Aunt Bethany, Lester, and Liam came over to celebrate Christmas. This year we started with dinner, then opened presents, and finished the evening off with the Christmas Eve Candlelight Service at church. We are always rushed on this day, but I still love celebrating the evening at church. Seeing my children's faces in the candlelight as we celebrate Christ's birth is something that I never want to forget. :) I just wish I had pictures of it...maybe next year.

We thought this box was funny. It definitely did not contain Victoria's Secret though....

Loving their coaster cars from Nana and Pop

So hard to get a picture where everyone is doing what they are supposed to... ;)

Ava's Kindergarten Christmas Program

I decided to just catch up in chronological order and the first event that I haven't posted was Ava's Christmas program. This year the kindergarten class hosted a mini-music program and then invited the families to help their children with making gingerbread houses.

Ava was excited because she had a speaking part in the program and we spent a lot of time practicing it. :) Her line was from The Night Before Christmas and she had to say, "And I laughed when I saw him in spite of myself." She did a great job and her little singing parts were so cute!

Hello, Old Friend...

Dear blog,

I am sorry that it seems that I have abandoned you for almost a month. I can't explain why I haven't found the time to update you other than that I am so far behind on downloading pictures, that I am overwhelmed anytime I think about it.

I have now starting downloading the pictures I took over the holiday season in all it's busyness. I am working on sorting through them and even though it is January of 2012, I am going to post a recap of Christmas 2011. :)


P.S. If anyone is still checking this blog, I promise to have some catch ups soon! ;)
