The beginning of December we went back to Texas and family for the first time in almost two years.  It was so nice to be home and I got to meet my niece!  It was so nice we wore short sleeves most of the time.

Christmas eve we had some family and friends over for a Jewish Feast.  I got the idea from a friend and it was awesome!  We ate by candlelight and had some great food, and afterwards we acted out the Christmas story.  Here are a few snapshots from Christmas morning:

After our morning family time, we headed to a dinner put on by our church.  We went for the specific reason that our children were invited to serve.  It was a little crazy with kids serving food, but adults were standing by to help.  Lucas was in charge of handing out plates at the beginning of the line and Cobin gave rolls.  Afterwards we went to hang out with family at their house.  It has been such a great year and we're looking forward to the next!
I'm a little late with this post, but this year Cobin and Lucas were in soccer.  I can't find the pics of Lucas from his soccer class.  He was too young for the club soccer by a month, but he loved his class.  Cobin was on the Columbia team and he really enjoyed it.
