Buon Natale!

The kids put on a little Christmas play at our Chapel on Christmas Eve.  What a good looking cast!
Our little wise man.
Mary and Joseph. (aka Elise and Brady)

Our "little bit bigger" wise man.
After the Christmas Eve service we returned home for a tradition that started in my family many years ago.  Each of the kids got to open a Christmas ornament and put it on the tree.  This year they each got an ornament from our trip to Germany.  It's so wonderful to tell the stories of each ornament and it's meaning for each child when we decorate the tree together.  A family favorite it still Elise's Humpty Dumpty ornament from the Christmas when she was two.  It's sentimental value comes from her classic quote "I love mommy.  I love daddy.  I love humpty dumpty!"  

Christmas morning fun. 
Our very own White Christmas!  The temperate at our house was 55 degrees, so we headed up to Mt. Etna to enjoy a touch of winter.

Merry Christmas to All!
