While I'm strolling down memory lane, here are our long overdue photos from Christmas 2010.
At the school Christmas program, Emmylou's class all dressed up like wisemen. They sang a song then deposited their gifts at the manger for the baby Jesus. All except Emmylou. She walked by then hid hers under her robe and took it back to her seat.
Of course we made gingerbread houses again this year.
Gingerbread tip #1: Covering your roof pieces with skittles and gumdrops makes for a way-too-heavy roof.
Aunt Emmy took Emmylou and Miller to Build-A-Bear a couple of days before Christmas to buy them their gifts: Rudolph and Clarice which they begged for constantly throughout the Christmas season.
Miller crashed on Christmas Eve but Emmylou stayed up to leave the milk and cookies out for Santa. She also decided to leave Santa a gift, which was a little stuffed animal that she got when she visited Santa at the mall. Re-gifting already!
We enjoyed "The Night Before Christmas" over and over.
One of the only photos from Christmas morning... They saw their very own claw game!
