Christmas in Oregon

We acted out the Nativity on Christmas Eve with Matt's brother and their five children, Matt's sister Molly, his Mother and Father. Matt and I got to be Mary and Joseph with Dani as baby Jesus and Carlee as a Shepard. It was a special moment as we sang and pondered in the makeshift stable filled with straw.

All the grand kids got new pj's from their Aunt and Uncle Daylong in Idaho. Thanks Natalie and Jared!

Carlee got a fairy toadstool cottage complete with three fairies and a snail from Santa. Mom and Dad got her a Tinkerbell DVD and a book about fairies. Her Tinkerbell pj's were a perfect match! She had fun but was too young to really know what was going on.

Dani got to sit in her Grandpa's lap all morning:)

It was wonderful to be in Oregon for Christmas with some of Matt's family. More vacation pictures coming soon so stay tuned.

I love that family tradition. The make-sift stable is a great addition.
