|Levi had his first violin recital. He had only had his real violin a short time, but he did a nice job being in front of everyone. He played the E string concerto.|
|The weekend before Christmas we celebrated with Grandma and Grandpa and the cousins on that side of the family.|
On Friday the 23rd we celebrated Christmas at Nana and Papa's house.
|Opening Presents on Christmas Eve. The kids had gifts from us, Gram and Poppy, and Aunts and Uncles on the Carnahan side to open.|
We had our traditional Christmas Eve meal at a Mexican restaurant.
We then dressed up and headed to church for the candlelight service. It was a very nice service, but I was worn out from wrestling a wiggle almost one year old and keeping a 3 year old wrangled. Kyle sang in both the 4 and 7 o'clock services so he stayed at church. The kids and I headed home to watch elf and eat popcorn and mint m&m's, which may be a new tradition as this was the second year for it.
After we opened gifts we headed to Princeton to Grandma and Grandpa's.
