Every year since I can remember we have performed the Nativity as read in Luke. This year Jadon was Joseph and Bostyn was baby Jesus (until Zhoee took his place) Jadon made me proud. He picked up on his cue to walk out and he stood so still and just listened so carefully. He can be such a sweetheart!!!! Good job, J!!!
Jadon, in his mothers interpretation of what clothes Joseph would have worn. (sorry, J)
Zhoee really likes her cousin Kaylee and took over as baby Jesus so she could sit on Kaylee's lap.
After the Nativity, we held our anual talent show. Jadon really wanted to be apart of it, even though our family hadn't prepared anything. Jadon walked right up there and told Great Grandma Jarrett he wanted to do something and turned to face everyone in the audience and said, "Now, I want us all to sing Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" So he started singing and we all followed. I'm not sure if his intentions were for everyone to sing or for him to sing solo but.... We all sang and I enjoyed watching him lead us all.

I took Bostyn up for a bath while the kids finished their outdoor adventure sledding with Dad. Zhoee came upstairs with her mittens soaking wet, and wanting to get in the tub with Bossy. I let her, big mistake, and she kept splashing him and wanting to hold him. He, of course, was patient as ever and just dealt with it. I was annoyed and kept asking her to just let him sit up and play but... after so long I had to get him out and dried off. Zhoee saw I was getting out his little robe to slip on him and begged to have it for herself. She jumped right out of the tub and insisted on wearing "Bossons wobe" She grabbed it and ran, soaking wet and naked, into her room. I finished getting Boss ready and out of her bedroom Zhoee trotted. She came out looking like this.... and luckily my camera was on hand.
Bostyn was realizing the robe did look better on him.

Even worse than being married to his sister (last blog),I'm afraid Jadon might be experiencing his first "crush"
I coach Volleyball on Wednesday nights and the kids come for the first 5-10 minutes until Bart comes home from work to take them home with him. Tonight Jadon opted to stay for the whole time with me becuase he absolutely loves to run laps with the girls. He certainly proved to be a champion ball shagger and kept himself tired running around chasing the balls. At the end of practice he begged to play volleyball with one of the girls (His mother would not do). Sophie, a girl on our team, volunteered to toss him the ball. She talked to him and encouraged him and really made him feel special. Well, on our way out to the car after practice I could hear him whispering her name. (probably practicing it becuase he had called her "Soshie" a few times and we had to correct him.) The entire car ride home all I heard was, "I want to come to your next practice to play with Sophie" and "Sophie is sure nice; I like her", "Can Sophie play with me next time too?" and "Don't you think Sophie likes me a lot?" Oh, goodness, I thought girls were supposed to have cuties until he was like 15.

What a fun night!!! After a little Christmas shopping, we went to Christmas Village in downtown Ogden. This is a family tradition of ours; We usually go the same night Bank of Utah has their open house and Bart needs to be there late anyway. But it seems like this year we're doing everything a little later. (I can't believe there's only a week til Christmas.) The lights were beautiful, hot chocolate was hot, and the kids were entertained. We were just a couple minutes late and they had closed off the line to see Santa, so that was a little disapointing but.... Even better, in my opinion, was seeing and petting Prancer and Blitzen. Yep, the actual reindeer right from the North Pole. Bostyn slept nice, warm, and cozy in the stroller the entire time. Jadon did worry about not seeing his name on the "nice lists" which were part of the decorations in about 4 of the small embellished houses in the village. (Good, it gives him something to for) Next is Temple Square over the weekend, hopefully!

We went to our ward Christmas party tonight! After dinner we had a fun slide show which had the year in review and picture from lots of activities. So, we were entertained with picture of Jadon and Zhoee at the primary water party, Bart winning the hoola-hoop contest this spring, who woulda thought! The best pic was me doing something in nursery like 3 days before I had Bostyn. I purposfully didn't have any pics taken for that very reason. Anyway, during the slide show everyone had a chance to guess how many pieces of candy were in this huge jar. I told Bart to come with me and put in a guess and he just gave me a look like, "are you kidding, I don't wanna waste my time" So, I cleverly thought I'd give us a better chance by putting in a guess for him and for myself. (I am so stinkin competetive, I want to win everything) So when they announced the winner just guess who won. YEA!!!! Bart. The sad think was that I have always been so terrible at those games. I guess way too high or way too low, but the one time I win, I don't really win!!!! The kids were quite happy to take home the candy jar. It was a fun party and we have some great friends in our ward.
