This year I talked the boys into acting out the Nativity. Dan read Luke 2 while the boys "acted it out". They didn't really do much acting, they just dressed up. And just in case you wondered - they were dressed up as shepherds and not jedis. Jack was an angel. And Sam's lightsaber was supposed to be a shepher's staff.
This year Carrie and Todd were here for a wedding. We loved playing with Penny and Stella and playing Settlers with Carrie and Todd. Yay for cousins! The only one we were missing was River.
