Christmas Morning!

We woke up at 7:30 (the latest in my 26 years of marriage)! Madi was so cute and very excited about all her gifts. She got dolls, a Nintendo DS, a guitar, a robe and slippers!! Robert got a skateboard and an Iron Gym, Logan a wetsuit and a book. The family a flat screen!! Yea!! It was a nice Christmas-the best part is watching Madi! She said, "I love Santa!!" I am so excited to get up to Utah and see the other babies. We will post more pics during that week!! Merry Christmas to all!!!

Live Nativity!!

We read the story of the Savior's birth and the kids acted out the story. Robert was the narrator. Baby Jesus was a blonde-huh???? I think Marissa's friend (who is a girl) was Joseph!! But all and all it was great and the most important part was hearing again about the humble beginnings of our Savior!

Making Reindeer!!!!

After the Holiday Program, Madi's class came back to the room and made cute reindeer. I love first grade!!!

Holiday Program!

SORRY MY CAMERA SUCKS!!! I had to make that disclaimer because if I am at any distance the pictures are blurry and I can't erase the red eye. But you can get the idea! The first grade sang two songs, both of them had little dances to go with them. The Hanukkah song was about the candles so they were dancing with thier hands above their heads like flickering candles. So cute (and funny). The other song was Feliz Navidad-where they did a cute dance and pointed at the audience saying "I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas"-very cute!!!!

Around The World Celebration!

The first grade had an Around The World Celebration where they learned about the traditions of different countries. The last day they had a luncheon with foods from the different countries. The countries were Italy, China, Mexico, Israel and the USA!! These are a few pictures from that day (my camera battery died after 4 pictures:)

Ward Christmas Party

Saturday night was our ward Christmas dinner. It was a back to Jerusalem theme. They had authentic food and decorations. Robert brought his friend Sasha. They even had a petting zoo-which Madi enjoyed. Our Bishopric was the three wisemen in a little play that they did. It was a fun evening!!

San Francisco Getaway!!!

This weekend Tim had a business trip in San Francisco so I decided to join him to go visit my cousin Sabrina. I arrived Thursday and took BART to Walnut Creek and that is where the fun began. Sabrina and I went out to lunch and then that night she had a big Christams party. I didn't really know anyone, but it was fun to get in the Christmas spirit!! The next day after spending a little time with my hubby I picked up Sabrina and we went for a marathon shopping day in Walnut Creek!!! It was great ot spend the day shopping and talking and LAUGHING (which we do alot of together)!!! Total therapy!!! That night we joined our hubbies at a nice dinner and then back to our hotel for a relaxing jacuzzi!! The next day we met up for donuts and to say good-bye! It was too short and super fun! Tim and I spent the day in the city shopping and having fun before we flew home!! As we were heading back to BART to go to the airport it started pouring rain and we got soaked!!!! The sun was setting on the flight home-beautiful!!! What a great weekend!! I love my cousin and I am glad we could get in a few days together!!! Let's do it again soon!!!
