Christmas Eve!

Really... we could just end here!  Our Christmas Eve has been wonderful.  We ate some yummy clam chowder, listened to the prophet, acted out the nativity and exchanged some wonderful gifts. 

 We have always drawn names to exchange presents but for the past few years we have made the rule that these gifts had to be made.  Last year we exchanged some blankets, cheesecakes, coupon books, boxes, chairs, pjs.... this year was just as wonderful.  I thought i'd share some of our highlights of the evening in pictures!
Daddy reading Luke 2

Mary listening to the Angel

Charly was so excited to be Mary

Cute Mary and Joseph

Our own little Shepard boy!

The Wise men looking to the star. 

Bring on the Angry Birds!

Dad and Garrett had Chloe and Charly's name so they decided to make them thier very own Angry Birds.  The girls and all of us loved it.  Thank you boys for all the hard work put into this present!

Chloe makes Liam a Sponge Bob blanket.

Marci makes Garrett a blanket.

Liam made Marci this sign and she LOVES it!

Charly made grant this table (to cover his lego table) so that he can now use it for drawing!

Mom made dad this book.

MY favorite gift of the evening!  Grant had my name (so Cyrus helped out a bit).  Cyrus found this idea on Pinterest and made this giant ruler so I can put it up in my house and measure my kidos!  I LOVE IT!  Isn't he the best husband ever.
