All things Christmassy

How come almost every Christmas tradition we have happened to fall on the same weekend?  That's how this past weekend was--super busy and super fun, but super tiring!  

We started off with dinner with friends and the Singing Christmas Tree.  It's the first year I can remember that Zeb wore short sleeves!  It was such a strange feeling for it to be so warm.  

I had my big camera with me, but the flash wasn't working.  This was the best iphone picture we could get.

The next morning we woke up for the Madison Christmas Parade.  These boys were too cute!

(Sara Beth was at a birthday party...that's why she isn't in pictures!)

Forget Santa being the highlight, it was the ninja turtle!

Funny how we ended up right next to Uncle Brad's sister!

Later that afternoon, we went to the Nutcracker!  The girls went on field trips to see the shortened version when they were 4, but I had never taken them to see the whole thing!  I forgot how good the 2nd half is!

We ended Saturday with the UMC Pediatric Christmas party.  It's fun to get up every now and then!

There was also a lot of leaf raking--and pile jumping!

Monday evening, FPC had the Getty's come and do a concert.  The 3rd-5th grade choirs got to sing a couple of songs with them.  Sara Beth is in the middle in chevron.

Zeb has a group of 1st year medical students that he is mentoring this year.  We have both had a lot of fun getting to know them. All the m1s are divided into color groups--so the red and green groups had a Christmas party last night at Iron Horse.  Obviously, it was a tacky sweater.  They played a Christmas movie game and got prizes for dressing up!

Plus, we got a tour of the unopened BB King museum that is in Iron Horse.

It's a big deal to get both of us in "costume", so I have to have it recorded!
