We ended up inviting 4 or 5 families to come to our house from 6:30-8:00. I told everyone to bring a treat to share and we visited and all the kids that came did the nativity while Shawn read Luke 2. It ended up being a great evening and I think everyone enjoyed it.

At about 11:00 we got to talk to Kami!!
We did some more sledding in the afternoon:
Caden, Maddie, Isabelle, Nolan:
Christmas was perfect.
