Christmas 2008

Christmas was merry at our house this year. We all got what we wanted and then some. Here are a few pictures of the festivities.

Hannah got the sewing machine she wanted.

Since we have 2 feet of snow outside, we had to resort to riding the bike in the house.

Gramma teaching Hannah how to sew.

Hannah's first sewing project was some jammies. She sewed all the straight seams and Gramma did the rest. Then Gramma had to make Halee a pair too!

Last night it started snowing . . .

and today we have 10-12 inches of fresh new snow.

Hannah's Christams Program

Last night was Hannah's Christmas Program. The First Grade class actually had 2 different numbers to perform. The first 3 songs they performed with the Kindergarteners and 2nd graders.

The first song they song was "Go Tell It on the Mountain." Hannah is the 2nd angel from the right.

The 2nd song was "Bethlehem Lullaby."

The last song was "The Angels Sing."

Then they sat down and came up a bit later to do a play. They didn't have any speaking parts. It was narrated by someone else. They just had lots of movements. Hannah is the angel on the right. When the wisemen were happy, they did the "Egyptian Walk." Stuff like that. It was quite cute!

Halee had her Christmas program tonight. The first number was a poem called 3 Great Kings.

Then they sang, We Wish You a Merry Christmas!

And a few other cute pictures I got tonight.

The last one we actually took yesterday.

One last thing I've been wanting to tell you about is my new TV armoire. When we were trying to figure out the floor plan, I found a picture in a magazine that I wanted to incorporate. We built this area just for this purpose. I had not been able to find exactly what I wanted that would fit into this space. Ed made these bookshelves. Ed's dad found the TV armoire at a garage sale for $25! It was the wrong color, so I stripped it and restained it and put polyurethane on it. It turned out very nice.

Some of the things I was looking for in the armoire were doors that opened and slide back on the sides and drawers to put all the movies in. It is perfect. The DVD fit in the 1st drawer, the VHS (yes we still have some of those!) fit in the 2nd drawer and the CD's in the 3 drawer. It is perfect!

Hannah has her Christmas program tomorrow. Check back soon to see how that went!
