Our year is ending with SNOW.

December 25th 366 challenge
One of my favorites from Christmas. This is the gift Michael gave to Benjamin (family gift exchange)... a poster sized map of Middle Earth. In color. Complete with labels, the poem, and many other really cool details. I need to take a closeup sometime. I love my kids.

Christmas Eve 2012
December 24th 366 challenge
One of these things is not like the others...
My mother in law gives us a bear every year! Yes, starting with the first year we were married (which also was Michael's first Christmas... ) So we have 17 bears, plus an extra for one of the years Tom worked for Walmart and we got one from there. Jules just fit in perfectly...
December 23rd 366 challenge
Mom's birthday cake! CAKE!!!! Don't know what it is but I WANT SOME! :)
(we celebrated a little late, due to other things we were doing like going to the temple and shopping...)
December 22nd 366 challenge
Samuel and Juliana playing. She has so much fun with everyone!
December 21st 366 challenge
Benjamin's Hobbit Hole... plus the gate at the top of our hill in the backyard, which leads to a VERY large park... that we get extra snow from for our forts, snowmen, and Hobbit-Holes.
December 20th 366 challenge
Liberty, upon wanting to come inside, was SO upset that she couldn't bring her NO-man in with her.
December 19th 366 challenge
Made lots of cookies with the kids today. Good times! Gingerbread men (and bears, wreathes, stockings, etc...)

December 16th 366 challenge
Our three year old Liberty! I can't believe she will be leaving Nursery (18 mos to 3 year old class) and moving on to Sunbeams in Primary in just 3 weeks! (Sunbeams are the 3 year old class in our children's classes at church). She is growing so fast!
December 15th 366 challenge
Liberty got to meet Santa at the Ward Christmas party (after the Primary Nativity where Christopher was a cow... and I had three rowdy shepherds, too...) She liked being able to meet him, but wasn't all about presents... she just wanted to give him a hug.
December 14th 366 challenge
This is the Nativity by the Kansas City Missouri temple. I love it. I love the simplicity, that Mary is holding baby Jesus, and that Joseph has his arm around Mary.
December 13th 366 challenge
Juliana made it to the stairs crawling, so Samuel climbed over the baby gate so he could talk to her through the gate...

December 12th 366 challenge
And, today we sold our car. Our little miracle car that made it from Texas to Missouri, to Illinois and back a few times as well, when all we bought it for was for the 2 mile commute (on flat terrain) to work and back in Amarillo, TX...
Well, it pays for some of the plumbing fun we've had this month!
December 11th 366 challenge
This is my favorite Nativity. I love my Nativity sets.
So, the Lord of the Rings doesn't fit but it's still pretty... ?
December 10th 366 challenge
Liberty was telling her babies to be nice to each other. She loves these two babies right now...
December 9th 366 challenge
December 8th 366 challenge
Samuel with some fun gifts... he got a big one and a little one to give away. (the big one is ONE POUND of Reese's... two BIG cups!)
December 7th 366 challenge
Nathanael's creation with Magnetix... I think it's supposed to look like that :)
