Christmas in St. George

We had a wonderful Christmas with the Stephenson family this year.  It's a small gathering, but a 
pretty great one.
My pictures got all out of order and I'm too lazy to fix it so oh well.  Here we go.   

We spent Christmas Eve at Grandma's club house with some of the other residents and members of her ward that didn't have other family to be with.   We enjoyed visiting while eating dinner and a super yummy dessert (which I ate WAY too much of).  Then we had the kids put on their nativity play while reading from the scriptures.  Then we had the kids open their pj's, sang songs, and read 'The Night Before Christmas'.  It was so nice to let others share in our family fun.
On Christmas morning Lily found and new baby doll and crib.
Maggie was super stoked about her lego set. 
Lily also got a stroller for her baby. 
Ben was very happy about his Star Wars Lego watch.  Way to go Santa! 
He also scored big time with more Legos and a handmade Jar Jar Binks doll from yours truly.  
Maggie got the movie 'Brave', a Merida doll, dress, and wig.    Here is Lily playing will all her stuff.  

Maggie at home in the dress.  I'm so glad they can share and wear the same size!  
On Christmas day Lily and I put together her puzzle. 
Warren and Ben stuck together lots.  Or Warren just liked to see all the big kid stuff Ben was doing.  I think he is playing his new video game here. 
Here we have Dad wearing his favorite Star Wars t-shirt, Ben is wearing his new Star Wars watch, and they (or mostly Dad) are building the new Star Wars lego set. Would you believe me if I told you they were watching a Star Wars movie?  
Maggie loves to hang out with Grandma and Gretel.    

Here are some pictures I took of the kiddos Sunday before church. 

Of course the favorite one is with Gretel. 
This was the best picture I got from our Nativity program.  The shepherd and his sheep were wandering doing what sheep do.    
But here is a picture of them getting ready.  Probably the cutest shepherd and lamb ever!

Your kids are so big and so adorable! Glad you had a good Christmas. Love the Brave outfit. So fun. As always, I am amazed at your craftiness. That doll is amazing!
