The One with Christmas in Denver Days 3+4+5

We're finally back to home-sweet-home so now it's time to play some major catch-up!

Christmas Eve-Eve we did some stuff. See that's the problem with not blogging everyday - I can't remember! And I was super bad at taking pictures so even that doesn't solve my problem. I think we went to the mall which was utter madness because everyone was buying last minute presents. Other than that we spent most of the day inside looking outside at the GORGEOUS snow-covered Denver metropolis.

Bethany and Peter brought some books to entertain Evelynd - one of them in particular Fox loved to bits.

On Christmas Eve Margi and Tom hosted their annual Nativity in the barn. Fox was the staring role of baby Jesus!
(Thanks to Jay for all of the following pictures.)

Friends and family and horses and dogs gathered in the Evans' barn to watch and behold a reenactment of the nativity.

Chris was Joseph and I was Mary and we swaddled baby Fox and laid him in a manger.

Throughout the night we would sing carols and Nick accompanied us on the piano.

Margi was the angel, naturally, and narrated the nativity.

Peter and Evelynd.

Christmas morning we woke up bright and early!

Looks like Santa came to town!

We opened presents then ate a delicious breakfast of homemade cinnamon rolls and egg casserole.

Before we flew out to Colorado we had our own Christmas at home. We didn't want to haul all the presents out to Colorado just to bring them back. Goodness knows I'm not a light packer as it is - to add presents would just be the cherry on top! Fox doesn't quite 'get' opening presents, but he sure likes what's inside them!

His toys entertained him for about 5 minutes each then he wanted our cell phones.

Kids these days :)

Monday morning we packed up and drove to Utah. Our Christmas in Colorado was two-fold in purpose: enjoy time with family then take Nick to the Missionary Training Center where he will learn Spanish and then fly to Leon, Mexico to serve an LDS mission for two years!

What beautiful photos! That first photo of the snow looks like a postcard!! Fox opening his presents is so gorgeous - my 5 month old son just wanted to eat the paper from the presents......and then he just wanted to eat the present inside! ha ha ha
