Fun after the Christmas Program

Anna and Rachel "posing".

Sara, Anna and Rachel

Anna really wanted to take a picture in front of the cafeteria snowman.

Christmas program and fun

Not a great picture of Sara...but it is her. We were too far away sitting in bleachers to get a good one.

The singing group is composed of 4th and 5th graders. They sang Jingle Bell Rock, Joy to the World with sign language, Special Season of the Year. Aletta would like to participate in the choir next year.

Aletta, Leah and Rachel waiting for the program to begin.

Monika and Anna awaiting the event. Anna and Aletta had seen the same program during the day, when it was performed for the whole school. They didn't seem to mind seeing it again. The highlight was seeing the 2nd graders perform "Twas the Night Before Christmas" with a 2nd grade student dressed as Santa. He even tried to walk "old".

We missed Sara...

Sara is doing her most favorite thing. It's especially good for Sunday mornings.

What we do on Sunday morning...

Rachel caught "vegging out".

We think that it is church work Nathan is doing. The bishopric uses a lot technology to run the ward.

Monika is trying to study her Valiant 10,11 lesson.

Leah putting together the Christmas Puppy puzzle.

Aletta and Anna decide that making a fort is the best thing to do. It was made out of chairs, a vacuum, and even had a lamp in it.


Anna thinks klompens look great as ears.

Here are the "klompen ears" sticking out.

Monika holding the wonderful gift that Nathan gave her.

Anna trying them on for size.

Enjoying the Chocolate Letters!

Sara just loves the "S".

Look, Papa, no hands!

Rachel just couldn't open her mouth wide enough.

Leah just wanted to lick it. Soon after, she was the first one to eat her whole letter.

The girls like to be goofy, especially when eating chocolate.

St. Nicholas Reader's Theater with Scenery

Orginal reader's theater written by Leah. We had invited over two other families from church: the Hawks and Isoms.

Monika is playing daughter to Ally Isom, while Anna looks on.

Two of the scenery pieces...a canal and a windmill.

Anna and Sara helping Zeph Isom with scenery. Anna traced the water lines and she did a goood job.

Rachel intensely coloring in the windmill.
