Cole's class was at the opposite end of the lunchroom from where the parents were sequestered, so the picture we got was a blurry mass of Christmas sweaters and Santa hats. His class sang Felice Navidad, and if you have never heard a Watts sing Felice Navidad, Jose and Maria got nothin on us!
This is what it looked like with the candles lit. This is an old Scandinavian tradition that we read about and have decided to make a part of our Christmas celebration, it was amazing to see how many other people had done the same, it was a very peaceful and beautiful way to spend Christmas Eve.
Another Christmas Eve tradition of new PJ's!
(I have one SEXY wife!)
Here are the kids Christmas morning, with sleep swollen faces and big smiles excited to open all the presents Santa brought to them!
Some of the other fun things we did but missed taking pictures of; spending time with Grandparents, Uncles, Aunts and Cousins on both the Phillips and Watts sides of the families, swimming, movies, playing with toys, a family nativity, New Years in Saint George, 1st night with the Jetts, CJ dancing on the stage in front of thousands of people, then getting escorted off by the Mayor and Sheriff, playing Wii with Grandpa Jack, lots of eating, saying good bye to a special dog,
It was time well spent with lots of family, love and blessings. It's been one heck of and a very interesting year. We are so glad 2010 is here. We were REALLY glad to say:
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
LET 'ER RIP!
