To begin our Christmas season, we went to the Museum of Idaho's Christmas exhibit. Ridge wasn't so impressed with Santa. (Thinking back though, we didn't really explain what we wanted him to do...we just tried to throw him into the arms of some guy he didn't know.)
I made this nativity set for the boys (mostly Ridge) to play with. I got the idea from this blog.
We had a Christmas eve's eve get together with Jason's side of the family.
The kids made gingerbread houses out of graham crackers.
Brielle's won for "most candy supported"
For our sibling gift, Katie and Marc gave us money to go towards our Sam's Club membership. Since it was supposed to be a "homemade" gift, they took the money and made origami objects with it.
Bow tie, fan, chain, ring, snake, triangle, sunglasses......
It was also Marc's birthday so we got to make use of all of Jen's candles
