Christmas Family Home Evening

For Family Home Evening last night 3 of my friends families came over.  We had soup and breadsticks, decorated graham cracker houses, and had a lesson on Christ's birth.  Scriptures were read, songs were sung, and we watched The Nativity accompanied by Amy Grant's "Breath Of Heaven."  We had a fun night and I think the kids enjoyed learning about the reason why we celebrate Christmas.  The Davis household is greatful for our Savior, Jesus Christ.

RIP Butterball

Kali had the opportunity to bring her classroom hamster pet home with her for the Holiday's, but we are sad to say that she is no longer with us.  She passed away Monday, Dec. 22, 2008, due to causes we won't discuss.  We are all very sad, especially Kali.  

Bunkerhill's Christmas Program

Kali's class sang "O Christmas Tree"
Sarah's class sang "Little Drummer Boy"
Kole's class sang "We wish you a Merry Christmas"
The kids had a Christmas program, it was quite entertaining! They have been practicing for weeks, seranading me in the car, at home, practically anywhere they had a chance. 

Decorating our Tree

It was Stella's turn to put the star on the tree, she felt special!
Kris and I had fun wrapping this baby in lights.
Kali, Sarah, and Kole having too much fun decorating the tree
Kole, very serious!
We put up our Christmas tree the Monday after Thanksgiving, an 8 foot noble fir for only $30!  Oh yeah it pays to be living in Christmas tree central!  Kris and I had to do a little rearranging of the ornaments, the tree was a little bottom heavy, especially were Stella was decorating.  Boy do we love Christmas!

Thanksgiving fun

Stella got to do the bumper cars all by herself!
Stella, Kole, Sarah, Kali, and cousin Blake

The kids and the dads went bowling, minature golfing, bumper car bumping, while the girls went a shop, shop, shopping after Thanksgiving, and now we didn't get up at the crack of dawn to go!  We celebrated Thanksgiving at Kris' parents home, and had lots of fun, especially the cousins.

And Finally.........drum roll please

Here is my little belly bump,(well maybe not that little). I can't believe that I am almost half way done!
