Christmas 2015

We had a fun time for Christmas this year.  We had Caleb, Doranda, Malachi, Talitha, and Tianna, and their families up for a visit and we got to skipe/talk to Isaac, Nathanael and Joshua and their families.  We also talked to our parents down in Arizona.

 Christmas is all about remembering the birth of Christ and we had a Christmas skit to get us into the right mood for Christmas.  Tucker played Joseph and Penelope played Mary.  Scarlett and Leon were shepherds who followed a star to see the Christ.

 A little hard to see in the dark.  Doranda was the narrator.

 Joseph and Mary could not find any room at the inns.  Leon was the inn keeper.

 Finally Joseph and Mary found a place in a stable and Jesus was born and placed in a manger.

 The Woestman family sang some Christmas carols.  You can't see Doranda, but she's playing the piano.

 Then we had a meal on a blanket in front of the fireplace and ate simple food: meat, pita bread, and fruit.

 Next morning it was time for stockings.  Doranda and Tianna put out stockings for all their children.

 The best thing about Christmas is getting together with family.  Here we are starting to open presents.  Dallen, Caleb, James, Evan, Ashton, and Scarlett.
