Christmas Moments (Wordless Wednesday)

Just before heading out to our traditional Christmas Eve meal at the Chinese Restaurant (yep; we're missing a couple kids here, but we let them come with us anyway)

Acting out the nativity

Santa brought scooters for Allison and Sarah

with our adopted grandma across the street

Santa brought Harmony a doll stroller and she found the perfect doll to go in it.

I did a bit of sewing this year and made five of the kids personalized superhero capes.

My mom also did some sewing and all the girls got these adorable aprons.
Watch out, small animals!

Merry Christmas! (I think this is the only photo of Christmas I'm actually in)

Not pictured: One of my favorite new items from Christmas was a 400-disk DVD player. Since we don't have television except for videos, we've collected a lot of them over the years and they are constantly getting fingerprints or scratches on them. They also take up a lot of space and the kids make a mess with them and sometimes break them. We were able to put all of our kid shows into our player and put the cases away in storage, freeing up a huge amount of space in our entertainment wall for games and puzzles. A few hours with the machine hooked up to the internet and almost all of the DVDs were cataloged. Now, we can search for a movie with a quick scroll through the names and cover photos and play it with a simple click. No more kid scratches.

That sounds like the most awesome thing ever!! I've been thinking that all of our disks keep taking up too much space as well, and they also get scratched, or occasionally broken. This method would totally help prevent that!!

I love the pictures! I will have to look into those DVD players....we have the exaxt same issue.

I am not in any of our Christmas pictures because I took all of them.

Sounds like a neat DVD player.

Great capes!

That's a great idea! I didn't even know they made a DVD player that held that many DVD's. For us, the kids just either loose the case or leave it on the ground to get stepped, so now I keep them in a big zippered case with a combination lock. They are only allowed 1 at a time! It looks like you all had a Merry Christmas.

Great pictures, looks like you had a wonderful Christmas.
Can I be added to your Mother's Guild group?

The superhero capes are adorable! I bet the kids love them. And I think my 1 year old got that very same baby stroller for Christmas. She sits in it too! LOL It looks like it was a wonderful Christmas!

I'm glad that you had a merry Christmas!

Thanks for posting your recommendation of "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" DVD. We really enjoyed that one!
