What Christmas would be complete without making a gingerbread village?  I love it!  Vessel and I did a great job, didn't we?  Thanks for the gift Jeremy, Chandelle, and kids.  :)

Aloha 2nd Ward Christmas Party

 Vessel played the part of Joseph in the Nativity skit and his friend Katherine played the mother Mary.  They looked so cute in their costumes.  At first he was wearing a peach colored pillowcase, but was mocked for wearing "pink" which was really stupid, I know, but he ended up wearing a brown pillowcase on stage.  Yeah, don't want him to seem less masculine, right?  Dumb.

This picture doesn't really do the decorations and lights justice.  Everything looked really beautiful!

Some family photos taken by our ward photographer Christie Blake.

Family Pics

 Here are some recent family pictures from the shoot we had earlier this month.  It was the worst photo shoot we've ever had, but we got a few "keeper" shots.  Jacob refused to smile, unfortunately.  The only smiles were forced by me tickling him.  Can't be mad at him though, he's too stinkin' cute.

He's such a happy boy.  I love his smile and his bubbly laughter.
