Then there was much wrapping!
One particularly interesting present was a sort-of-bought-sort-of-made one. Clyde and Iris went in together to buy their Uncle Brent a very large book from our local used book store. Then they helped Daddy glue the pages together and hollow it out. (didn't get a pic of Iris, she was only allowed to glue, of course)
Lucy and her friends enjoyed practicing their photography skills on the ornaments with all the twinkly lights. Sorry about my blurriness, I used my phone camera a lot.
There was much anticipation over the arrival of Nana. She showed up 5 days before Christmas. She spent lots of time being helpful, playing with the grandkids and giving hugs!
Finally Christmas Eve came and we went to Mom and Paul's church for their Christmas Eve service. Here's a Christmas Eve service (and after) from the eyes of a 6-year-old.
