Christmas 2009 ... lots and lots of pictures ...

The children made some Christmas gifts for me, the cute bell is made by Emma and the gift boxes and hand stitched hearts were made by Rick and Tom.

On Christmas Eve all three children participated in the church service. Tom was a shepherd, Rick a wise man and Emma sang in the band. The four singers had their hair, make up and nails done and they looked so much older! The girls and band did a great job performing the christmas musical!

On the 25th we went to Siebe's sister in Amsterdam. We stayed with them for two days. My brother-in-law, Ton, created a wonderful dinner on the 25th and the 26th! On the 27th we celebrated Christmas with my parents, sisters, brother-in-laws and cousins. It was a busy, but wonderful time!

Our newest family member; the snowman!

A very white Christmas?

Yes .. we finally got a thick layer of snow, so we could have snowball fights! The kids loved it! Today we'll build a snowman ... so much fun ... it looks like a 'white Christmas' for us indeed!
