Christmas 2014! A new adventure!

Our family has grown so much that having Christmas Eve in someones home is so crowded that we decided to try going to the church for our festivities. It was a big success. We did miss the barn but we were able to add many activities to our day. We had a balloon room , a craft area, a game area, a talent show, a magic show by Uncle Dwain..of course we had dinner and carols. We did our chimes and our 12 days of Christmas. And Uncle Jared did some fun dancing with everyone!!! I believe this will be the tradition for our family if all want to come to Turlock!

 Hannah was a riot with the balloons. She was really good at bouncing them on her head.
                    Bryn was a little afraid of the balloons at first but got the hang of it!
                                               Ally and Kirsten getting acquainted.
                                 Maren is always a crack up and loves the camera.
