Finally here are some of our pictures from Christmas. Matthew read books with Grandma Proctor for a long time. He read other books besides the Princess one, but this happens to be the one I got a picture of. :)
We had the kids dress up for the nativity scene and reading of Luke 2. Landon decided he would be baby Jesus before anyone really could tell him who to be. He acted the part well and acted like a content baby. Sorry to Katie who actually is a baby, next year I will make sure I tell him he should be a shepherd or wiseman.
On Christmas Eve all the kids got Christmas PJs. Here are Matthew, Cameron, Jadyn, Bridger, Carlie, and Matthew.
We visited the Christmas village after Christmas this year. It was WAY less crowded, but it was still very cold.
The boys have loved playing in the snow. You can always tell if they had a good time if their cheeks are bright red when they come in. Landon might just enjoy the hot chocolate just as much as the playing in the snow.
We also made a gingerbread house (thanks Vanessa). We had fun and as soon as we were done Landon wanted to eat it. I didn't get a good picture, but Landon immediately took a bite out of Santa.
On Christmas Landon told me was "really enjoying the day." When we delivered plates of cookies to a few people he would say "Merry Christmas to all and to all a Goodnight." After Christmas Landon wanted to write a thank you note to Santa. His note said "Dear Santa, Thanks and Your welcome." I guess he is saying your welcome for the cookies, or maybe for being good. We really had a great Christmas, and Landon is already planning for next Christmas.
