Every Christmas Eve my dad will read the story of Christ's birth (with the Kurt Bestor cd playing in the background) while we act it out. As you can tell, due to the shortage of little kids we all have to usually participate. This is probably my favorite part of Christmas actually.

These photos are actually gifts for my dad for Christmas. He never looks at my blog so I am totally safe to post these. My sweet grandparents live out in no mans land, which is a tiny sage brush town called Bicknell. They are both in their 90's, and still kicking!! Over Thanksgiving weekend Dustin and I got to drive down and visit. It was so good to finally be able to spend some time with them. We got to listen to my Grandpa talk about his stories of growing up and being drafted during WWII. I think since Dust and I have been called to family history now, the stories are becoming more and more interesting to me. Anyway I love how these pictures turned out! I seriously had to beg them forever to smile! Both kept telling me they look better in pictures if they don't smile- Ha :) Then when I showed them the ones of them smiling they were like, "oh that does look good." Dustin says that I am a lot like my grandma in a lot of ways. He is convinced we have the same laugh. Anyway I love these two people! And Grandma if you ever do get internet and look at this ...Thank you both of you for being so wonderful!
