Oakleigh's Christmas Concert

Oakleigh's Christmas Concert was today. At Oakleigh's school, when you hit the fifth grade, you get to chose between band, orchestra or choir. Before fifth you just take a general music class. Oakleigh chose choir. They sang four songs (only one was a Christmas song though) My favorite was Hava Nagela (which I probably spelled wrong) It is fun to see how mature she is getting. In my opinion she is the prettiest girl in her class.

SFFFHE ( super fun friends & family home evening)

Tonight for Family Home Evening we went to This is the place state park with our friends the Henricksen's. There was actually quite a bit to do. We went to Santa's workshop and put together giant toy trains. The kids made reindeer bags and gingerbread ornaments. There was a live Nativity and also Father Christmas with live reindeer. The best part I thought was our private showing of The Heritage Christmas Carolers. After we were done we came back to our house and Jill fed us some super yummy cookies.

Decorating Our Tree

For Family Home Evening we decorated our Christmas tree. We had some major problems with the lights but once we got that problem fixed the kids had it decorated in no time at all.
