Sam practiced his talent to blend in with the decor. You can't tell which one is real, can you?!
Richard practiced blending in as well! See that blond head way back there? That's my viola playing son participating in an amazing Christmas concert. Really, they were awesome!
After we got Sarah and Rachel home for the holidays Brittany treated us to Holiday Lights at
Thanksgiving Point. They were very pretty!
The best part was the funny paper glasses that made all of the lights shine like stars with six points. We had to take them away from Dee, who was driving (!) because he acted like he was on some psychedelic speed trip.
Did I mentions there were 8 of us in a van made for 7?
We got to meet some beautiful reindeer too! I felt sorry for them being out in the cold, but I was reminded... "Duh! They are from the North Pole!"
This picture is from another day when I visited Britt at work.
How cool to go to work every day and see Dasher and Dancer!
There were naps a-plenty and Samwise took full advantage!
The Master and I attended a yummy dinner for the Stake leadership. It was held at The North Hampton House, a beautiful old LDS chapel that has been transformed into a reception/event center. It was earlier in the month and really put me in a holiday mood.
I was actually going to post these photos and tell you all that my living room was all decorated...I wish! How perfectly cozy that would be!
We were treated to each organization's leaders performing for us. This is the Stake Young Men's Presidency singing "White Christmas" (the silly version from Home Alone) while upside down and dressed as frogs! All I had was my cell phone. Sorry for the blurs!
For me, the best of the night was the Stake High Council or "The 12 Singing Elvi"
singing Blue Christmas.
Here is my own personal Elvis!
Next time I will share with you our Christmas morning pictures. You know, fresh out of bed, no make-up, gorgeous and all!
Have a happy day!
My day is sunny and 5 degrees.
