Our Christmas Season in Pictures

We did so many things throughout December into January that I thought I would just post some pictures with short explanations. We had many chances to do extra service and were happy to help others. We were glad to have Calvin here for a few weeks to play lots of games and to do go to a few extra fun places. It was a very merry Christmas season.

Decorating the tree - stockings - Advent calendar from Krista

Rhianna's piano recital

Kindergarten Gingerbread Party with Rand


Real Gingerbread Men with the Neumillers

Enchanted Snowfall - Soapy foamy bubble snowflakes...not quite the real thing

Christmas Eve Nativity Story - Calvin as donkey with baby donkey Seth, Rhianna as Mary, Rand as Joseph, Stephanie as shepherd, Steve as angel, reappearances by Seth and Calvin as wise men

Christmas Pajamas for everyone this year!

Even pajamas for Calvin - here with a new game on Christmas

Mini Golf

It rained (and snowed in the mountains!) - Calvin taught the kids to make paper boats and it may have even snowed on us for about 1 minute!


Pima Air and Space Museum - Maybe my new favorite thing in Tucson - so many great planes (but the camera batteries died) like the huge boat/plane, Blackhawk, Top Gun type plane, Air Force One, helicopters, mini planes, bombers - Amazing!!

New Year's Eve with the Neumillers - food, games (like Lego Minotaurus), fun - and we all made it to Midnight!!

Final snowball fight - this time with extra stuffing from Build-a-Bear Make and Play

We wanted stockings that were nice and that also reflected our love of more modern and contemporary design. I did a question on Ask Metafilter and got pointed to a cool shop on Etsy. Here is the question I asked and it has the Etsy store in it:

Although I just checked that link and the Etsy shop we bought it from no longer seems to show up.
