It was a quieter Christmas Eve this year compared to the last couple—in 2010 (our first Christmas in Denver) my sister Monette and her family still lived here and in 2011, Monette had moved to Alaska, but my sisters Mirien and Marliese and their families both decided to come and visit for Christmas. This year, Milan & Rachael were spending their vacation in Arizona, but we were glad that my parents, Melayna, and Morgan & Ashley (and their cutie-pie Clara) stayed in town to hang out with us!
We all chimed for a while and then performed our nativity.
Whoops—somehow missed getting a picture of Berkeley. She was the angel and the star, and Melayna, Patrick, and I rounded out the cast as wisemen/women!
Finally, a drive to look at the neighborhood luminaries. Here is our house—first year we decorated the exterior of our house with lights too! I think we did a pretty good job, although these pictures don’t do it justice.
