Christmas

We had a fabulous Christmas this year! Christmas Eve was spent over at our friends the Drapers. One of our traditions that we started a few years back is to make traditional Scandinavian pancakes called Aebleskivers. They are basically stuffed pancakes that come out in a ball. The kids love them! Since Debbie's family has been making them too since she was a little kid we thought it would be fun to do them together. It was a fun Christmas Eve spent with friends.




It wouldn't be Christmas Eve without acting out the Nativity.

The whole gang

The kids woke us up at about 5:50...not too bad! What fun it is to see your kids so excited!

For out traditional Christmas Day matinee we went and saw Alvin and The Chipmunks 2: The Squeakquil. Jake and Jessica spent the day with us and that evening after dinner we played a new game called Quelf. What a goofy game but I don't think I have laughed so hard in my life! We have so many blessings to be grateful for all of which are centered around our Savior.

Such cute pictures! Everyone looks so grown up! It looks like the girls are growing out their hair again. Abbie's is the longest I've ever seen it! What little I could see...the wood floors look beautiful. Soo, the pancakes look good. How about the recipe (I feed 15 missionaries breakfast every month) Love and miss you all!
