Christmas Joys (lots of pictures)!!

We decided to cut our own Christmas tree this year. Here we are at the Rusty Gate Tree Farm...about 45 minutes from home.


The cousins "ride" on the tree.


The girls "help" dad carry the tree to the car.


We visited the "North Pole" (in Coeur d'Alene) and saw this beautiful display of lights.


Gemma's first time decorating a Christmas tree!


She's putting on her own ornament.


Gracie gets to place the angel on the top!



Gracie and her BFF at her school's Christmas concert.


A little nervous just moments before showtime.


Owen and Gemma anxiously await the music.


Gracie in action!


Sisters after the show.


Next it's Gemma's turn...in front of the tree at her school's Christmas concert.


Gemma had quite a bit of stage fright and didn't sing much. But we're proud of her for hanging in there and standing with her class through all of the songs!!


I think she was relieved when it was all over.


Gracie loves to frost cookies!


She's showing Gemma how to do it.



Gemma's turn!


Gemma's cookies


Gracie's cookies


Both girls were in our church's Christmas program this year.


Still has some stage fright...


Gracie sang beautifully!!
