Christmas Eve Handbells & Hugs


Katie had the orange bell, and I helped her ring it at the right time. Eventually, she got tired of my meddling and just rang it when she wanted -- a handbell jam session of sorts.

12 Days of Christmas

Last year R made a Christmas CD to play in the car and the kids just love it. Scott's favourite song is The 12 Days of Christmas, and he likes to hold up his fingers to show the number as he sings. He's a fan of Rudolph as well, but don't try to sing it any differently than the CD or you will get a scolding.

Nativity Story

Auntie N led the kids in a flannel-board retelling of the nativity story. When she told the kids that the wisemen brought gifts to baby Jesus, Scott piped up, "And so did the drummer boy". Scott knows his Christmas carols, so don't try to trick him.

What a wonderful way to spend time with the very most important people in your lives (including the baby Jesus) as your family got together. Was the new camera working?
