Schoessow/Deich/George Christmas 2014

Today we hosted the Schoessow/Deich/George Christmas! Even though one family was unable to come due to the flu, Tim & Amber's, we still had fun but sure did miss them. We started the festivities out by eating of course! The kids were so excited to see each other right away so they all went downstairs to get some playing time in and us adults took full advantage of eating in quietness and great conversation!

Once everyone did eat the adults announced who they had for their secret relative that year. Pops had Toni, Mom had Tom, Toni had Pops, Ken had Tim, Terry had Mom, Sandra had Ken, Tim had me, Amber had Sandra, I had Terry and Tom had Amber; it sure was fun getting spoiled and blessing someone else. Ken also gave Ava a gift to say sorry for the Spoons incident at Thanksgiving which we all still had a good laugh at retelling the story!

We then started on our Gingerbread House making contest! We had three different themes; Train Depot, Farm and a Castle. We took pictures of the final product texted them to Tim and Amber so that they could be the judges. The winner was the Train Depot; Team Pops but we demoted him due to him being stingy with putting on enough frosting so it became Team Emma and she won the prize!

There was plenty of time for foosball and legos of course before we ate lunch; salad, lasagna, yummy bread and apple crisp.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

D6 Christmas

Happy Birthday Jesus!

What a super fun and relaxing day; we even all took a nap!!! The boys were super excited to open their gifts; they each got nerf guns, legos, superhero costumes. Sawyer also got a crossbow, Mason received another nerf gun and Carter got a Spidey bouncy ball. I was also surprised by a gift from my friend Laci Jamison, two Devotional CD's! We also, as always, enjoyed opening our socks from Aunt Toni that she gets for us during her travels!

We enjoyed delicious pizza for lunch and a yummy birthday cake for dessert! Tom also did an excellent job serving us all sparkling grape juice in our super fancy cups! There was only one injury in the entire day; Mason fell off his chair.

It is always a great day when you are surrounded by your family, making memories, laughing together, building legos and having nerf gun wars!

"Where's Baby Jesus?"

"Where's Baby Jesus?" was the Christmas Program that the kids of Grace Bible Church performed for us today and they did an amazing job! This year Sawyer was super excited that he got to ring two bells, red and blue, and was able to be a Shepard. Mason was excited for his orange bell and that he did not have to be a sheep this year! We were really proud of both of them for how well they did on stage! MieMie and Papa also joined going to church this morning so they were also there to witness the great program! Afterwards MieMie and Papa treated us all to lunch at Pizza Ranch!
