Christmas Dinner

Sunday, December 25th, 2005

With six kids between 3 and 5 years old, Christmas dinner was fun for everyone. We went to Uncle Don & Aunt Bab’s house. It got pretty wild at times, but the kids all had a ball.

Christmas Lights

Friday, December 23rd, 2005

We went to see all the lights at the Opryland Hotel. Beth was a little scared of the water light show, but the Haunted Nativity Scene didn’t scare anyone this year.

Christmas Program

Beth & Jake had a Christmas program at their school. We even got to see them signing while they sang (and caught it on video). Here are a few pictures:

(Lauren actually loved the show, she just got a little impatient waiting for it to start.)

We don’t have any good ones from the show itself because we got some video and they were too far away for the camera, but here are a few shots of them and their outfits:
