Bedtime Stories

One of my favorite things to do is read the boys bedtime stories.  Even when they pick the same book over and over.  Some of these I have read not only to them but to their father so often, I have them memorizied.
At first Kaiden didn't want to have anything to do with these because we had read them so often, they were boring.  It didn't take long for him to inch his way over though.
He even finished one of them for me!

Christmas Gift

My oldest grandson presented me with a Christmas gift that was very unusual.  It was a nice package wrapped and tied in a bow.  When I unwrapped it, I found these.  He had told his Mom he needed them wrapped up so I could sew them for him.
 
Which of course, I did.

Christmas 2015

Christmas day brought cold and snow.  It also brought family and friends to our house for presents, good food, laughter and lots of love.
 The boys handed out gifts to everyone and then dug into their bags.
 Kaiden was pretty excited about the movie gift card!
 Laughing with Tito.

 A good time with Dad putting together Star War Legos.  Note the ugly Christmas sweaters gifted by other family members.

Christmas Play

Kaiden took part in the church's Christmas play this year.  A first, he never wants to do things like this, but he volunteered this year.  The story line was a writer trying to come up with a new twist on the same story.  She threw around ideas such as telling the story making the characters more modern, such as super heros and villians, etc.  then she was visited by the characters who told the story from their eyes.  King Herod was protrayed as a mafia boss and the kings his henchman, Mary was shown at different ages, the devil tried to talk Joseph out of accepting Jesus.  It was a nice fresh twist.

We are very proud of him.

The boys take cookie decorating very seriously.


Of course, they have fun also.

Oh, Christmas Tree

The family got together to decorate the tree the Saturday after Thanksgiving.  The boys were very interested in the stories behind the ornaments.  Trevin has been doing quite a bit of redecorating.  I dome home from work and find empty branches and 5 and 6 ornaments on others.
