Christmas break

Well, we finally got snow, and a lot of it!  It was great....the kids made snow men, a snow wall and we did a lot of sledding.  We hiked up the logging hill, which is quite a hike and sledded down.  By the last time, we could make it almost all the way down which is a good 1/4 mile.  Even my mom got on the sled!!!  I tried uploading the video, but for some reason I can't upload any videos right now.  I will try another day.

We had some fun with Grandma Peggy.  She took the kids to the Star Wars movie and we tagged along.  Everyone enjoyed it!  From there we went to Dustin and Anthony's to celebrate an early Christmas.  The kids enjoyed eating Taco's and getting presents.  We missed taking a group shot :o(.
 We also went bowling and then to the warm beach lights!

We went to a church in Millcreek that set up their main auditorium to be a mini Bethlehem.  It was quite impressive with live camels and booths with trade from that time (oils, skins, candle making)  Ainsley was very intrigued by the thief in the village that was taken to prison.  Then we went to a mini service, reminding us of the true meaning of Christmas.
Working on writing their names in Arabic:
Christmas was a party as usual.  The kids had a blast and we had fun sledding, opening presents and hanging out with family.
