Dipping pretzels for our friends...
And, making tamales WITH our friends...
We always open our ONE Christmas Eve gift, the girls got pajama bottoms and the boys got "Lakers" pillow cases. We always read Luke 2 before going to bed... We DO have to remember WHY we celebrate Christmas! How grateful we are to our elder brother, Jesus Christ, that came to earth to be an example and to atone for our sins!
And opening gifts...
Mom (Grandma Measles) went to the Holy Land this year (2010) with a tour group and she brought back all the boys (including Brad) oil from the olive trees in Gethsemane.
The girls got rolling pins from Anthropologie!
