Christmas Eve we went to a friend's house for dinner, a talent show, singing carols and a nativity play. My pictures are lousy, but here are the few I got. Nicholas was Joseph. Thomas was a wise man. Estella was an angel (no pictures of her...but she was adorable standing on the couch shouting out her line).
For our family journal, after the fun evening with friends, Jackson went to the 1st Presbyterian Church and played his cello in their Christmas Mass. He missed out on looking at Christmas lights with the kids and I, and also on reading Christmas stories and putting the excited children to bed, but it was a good experience for him and he felt good about doing it.
