December Holiday Fun

Of course the month of December was filled with all of your usual holiday fun and festivities. Here is a photo recap!

The kids had their Sunday School Christmas program at church, and I was a stage hand mom to help. Nana and Papa came to see the performance, but it looks like we forgot to take a photo!

Christopher the Elf returned to visit again this year. Some nights he got into trouble, some nights he had a message for Marly and Dean, one morning he delivered donuts.

He returned to the North Pole to report to Santa before Christmas Eve! (I could do an entire post about our Elf, but there simply isn't time!)
 We went to see 'Llama, Llama, Holiday Drama" at the Stages Theater in Hopkins.
 We were joined by our friends, the Lyons!
 First we ate at the Big Ten across the street, and everyone had a fun night.
 Among gathering with our immediate families (for another post), we headed home to Hector for Christmas Eve with the cousins. We went to church at First Lutheran, then on to dinner at Auntie Jan and Sheldon's. Santa made his yearly stop too.
We went sledding the Central Park hill in our town over the holiday break from school.
 It was such a balmy Minnesota day, the kids even took off their coats.
 Then we had a family date night. We went to dinner at Salud on Grand, drove up and down Summit Avenue to view the lights, then drove through the Lake Phalen lights display in St. Paul.
 Oh.... and I got a Keurig for Christmas. That's fun right??????
A few more holiday posts to follow, but I had to start somewhere!
