We had a wonderful Christmas Eve celebration with the Seal family at our home (and my parents even stopped by for a few minutes, too). We had a light dinner and then all the kids dressed up and presented The Nativity play for us and sang Silent Night. Then we did the wise man gift exchange (red gift is something sentimental/meaningful--my kids got books; green gift is something needed--my kids got pjs ; and gold gift is something fun--my kids got Mr. Fuzzy and Morgan got a Barney DVD) and then we did the cousin's gift exchange.
Hadley was Mary and Ryan was Joseph which only added to the wonderful spirit of this play. They couldn't even get along long enough to make it through a 2 minute play. They were fighting over who got to hold the baby Jesus while we were supposed to be paying attention to the shepherds and the wiseman following the star. Never a dull moment in this house!
