Tonight the family went to Christmas Eve services. The girls were all part of the Nativity play put on during the service. We have a new priest who has managed to maintain the family atmosphere, and inclusion of children very well.
T-Rex, Blondie and Cheesie were all Angels.
Big Al was one of the three "wise women."
Everything went very smoothly (and we got the required chuckle from the littlest angel who stomped her foot repeatedly at a shepherd- probably her brother- because he wouldn't turn around and pay attention to her).
Afterwards we came home, ate our big ham dinner, and watched The Polar Express while eating milkshakes.
We are excited for tomorrow, and looking forward to spending it with family and friends.
