This was our first Christmas without family. Bond started the celebrations off with two very badly sprained ankles as a result of church basketball.  It is now a month and a half after the fact and they are just now starting to feel somewhat normal again.
On Christmas Eve, we had some families and the missionaries from our ward over for dinner and a nativity "rendition".

Christmas Eve Jammies.
Christmas morning.
Bean's hat from Bear and blanket from Belle.
We got to Skype with Bond's little brother who is serving a mission in Madrid and currently assigned to the Canary Islands.
Bear and I at the downtown Christmas Festival.
The homeschool Christmas Party.
My mom has always been in charge of the veggie tray at our Christmas Eve party, this was my attempt to fill in for her absence while she and my dad are missionaries in Salt Lake City.
Lots of late nights, led to falling asleep on the floor.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Bug had his first acting opportunity as Max the dog in the Grinch production.  He loved it and is asking when he can hit the stage again.
