Christmas Eve services

Spencer and Meg sang with the children’s choir at a morning service. The grandparents came to watch too. We all had brunch together after. Rob accompanied the children’s choir in the morning and then played with the worship band at the afternoon service. We loved celebrating with our faith community.

Merry Christmas!

On Christmas Eve, we had dinner at the Dibble grandparents, Spencer read ‘Twas the night before Christmas, and we opened presents from the Grandparents. Then the kids struggled against sleep until they passed out. Meg woke up first and we opened stockings. Then we video chatted with the Felty grandparents and opened presents with them remotely. Then brunch with the Dibble grandparents and Grandma Grand. Then the rest of the presents. We passed the rest of the day relaxing and playing. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

Shell ornaments

Year at this time we were enjoying Florida with the Felty’s. I finally got around to turning some of our souvenir shells into Christmas ornaments so we can remember that trip for years to come. It’s amazing what a little imagination and hot glue will do.

Tin Can Robot

Spencer got his prizes from selling popcorn for Boy Scouts last night. He is so excited that he wanted to play with them right away. This is harder when there is some assembly required. So we put the tin can robot together tonight. The kids were absorbed for almost an hour, but disappointed to find that it would not clear the table for them when it was finished.
