We started our celebration with a little bubbly and a lot of food.
Such a classic Jon face.
Then it was time for our traditional Nativity program complete with angel chimes, of course.
Caleb was the narrator this year. We love singing all the Christmas hymns as we read.
And we hang the Nativity ornaments on the tree as we go.
Natalie thought that the baby Jesus should go at the very top of the tree.
Then she wanted to lead us in Joy to the World.
We always finish our Christmas Eve by watching the Little Drummer Boy. Then it was time to get the kids in bed so Santa could go to work.
The kids in their Christmas jammies. Natalie loved her "jammies with feet" so much that she's still not taken them off.
Santa was really good to all of us this year.
Look at Alyssa's face...nothing like the excitement of Christmas!
I love mine so much, I just had to share the joy.

Here's a clip of our favorite moments; her first solo and a bit of adorable hip hop.
Did you hear me whisper "that's was awesome!" after her solo? I didn't know she could sing a solo part so well. Way to go, Lys!

At first I didn't think it was that drastic, but judging by the reaction of others, it must be pretty shocking. Caleb wanted to know how long until my hair would turn back. Alyssa stood speechless with mouth agape. Both have been pretty honest about preferring me blonde.
It's OK if you don't like it. I love it!
