Merry Christmas 2010

Christmas day was spent at Keith's parents house. Their tree is amazing and lights up the whole living room!
Joshua read to us from one of The Bible Story books.
Megan and Grandpa listening by the light of the tree.
We played a few rounds of chess, which Joshua had unwrapped as one of his Christmas presents the night before. We had to get creative this year because we had so many festive things that we were trying to do! So we opted to have a gift-opening celebration on Christmas Eve and save Christmas morning for our wonderful church service and lunch at Grandma and Grandpa's house.
Grandma sure cooked up a fancy spread for us!

Right as we had arrived around the corner at Grandma and Grandpa's house, I heard smoke detectors and joked with Sandi about possibly burning lunch. It turned out that it was the next door neighbor's house that had actually burned to the ground a few years ago...the new owners were out of town and all of the smoke detectors were alarming quite loudly. We ended up calling the fire department because there was no way to discern if there was indeed a fire in the house or not. Thankfully, there was not a fire, and now I can't recall what the ruckus was about.

However, since we had a yard full of firemen, the kids asked if they could see the truck. The firemen were fabulous and said they could visit until their next alarm went off, so each child took a turn in the driver's seat.

We were given a tour of the truck and a lesson on all of the different tools the firemen use.
