Christmas 2011!

Wow I can't believe Christmas 2011 is pretty much over! We had a wonderful Christmas weekend, but this week is basically a blur. I have been sick since Monday night and so far two of the kids have been sick too. I'm really hoping that we are able to have a good New Years weekend! Anyways I wanted to share with you some pictures of our Christmas!
Last Thursday we had some fun learning about Hanukkah!
My husband is the champion Dreidel spinner!
On Friday the kids were in charge of Dinner, and dessert! They made pizza and cupcakes!

They put on a wonderful Nativity performance for us! I told them earlier in the month that they would do one on the 23rd and that they had to plan it all themselves. Buster was quite the little director. Mary! Photobucket Photobucket 
I forgot to take a picture of Sweetpea as the angel. 
After the performance they each sang a song for us. Sweetpea has been practicing The Christmas Shoes all month(she loves that song), and she completely floored us by singing the entire song all on her own without any music. It was beautiful and it brought tears to my eyes! After the performance we drug out a couple of the kids mattresses, and they got to sleep in the living room. We watched the Nativity Story and the Grinch Who Stole Christmas!

Christmas Eve was spent at my mom's house.

After we left there we went to my Sister in laws house for a bit. My husbands cousin sewed these dresses for the girls! Sweetpea with cousin S, and M! Unfortunately Buttercup was hiding behind the tree. Photobucket 
Christmas morning we got up bright and early. Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket 
I searched high and low for this music box!
