Scenes from Christmas

Mary and baby Jesus

An angel proclaiming the good news

Shepherd with interesting sheep

Christmas Eve jammies

The traditional Christmas Eve jammie pyramid

And on Christmas morning I opened the slipper box--the one I'd seen on the counter and had to hide myself. The one that Lyle made a point of wrapping right in front of me, completely stealing away every last element of surprise.....

...until I opened the slipper box and found this....

....and from the garage Lyle brought in this.....

It was a perfect Christmas.

I got a camera too. I got a Canon Powershot SX10 1S. I have to read up on what all it does still but for now I know how to point and take pictures in auto mode. Looks like you had a great night. Aidan was so excited this year he wanted to go to bed right after dinner and the opening of pajamas at 6:30 at night. I can honestly say I think it was the first time I had to force one of my kids to stay up until at least 8:30. Anyways looks like the kids put on quite a show. I especially enjoyed the sheep. I look forward to all your posts in the New Year!!

A Christmas Eve jammies pyramid? How does such a tradition even start? lol

And Lyle? You da man!! Nice work.

Looking forward to excellent photography from you, Eileen!

I'd have to ask my Mother-in-law about the origins of the jammmie pyramid because that came from Lyle's childhood. I'm sure it was quite impressive with a family of 8kids.

I'll see if I can track down some vintage photos!
