Christmas Eve for the Bryce Family

This year we spent Christmas Eve at David's parents home. We had a fabulous dinner, a fantastic nativity, an awesome talent show and a fun, surprise visit from Santa.

Joseph made a cute shepherd

Mary and an uncooperative baby Jesus

Some darling angels

The entire cast

We can't have Christmas Eve without some music

We got to see a Tuba, Guitar, Piccolo, Trumpet and Kazoo musical show. It was amazing!

Grandma Bryce makes gorgeous Christmas quilts

Santa surprised the kids

They had a lot to say

This was Santa's reaction when I told him I wanted a Southern Caribbean cruise for Christmas!

Abby was wishful under the mistletoe

Grandad came to the rescue!

We saw some fun lights on the way home

It was a little foggy as we got closer to home

When we got home we got to open up the package our missionary son, Rick sent us from Guatemala!

We took a family picture with all the stuff he sent us

He sent this little Guatemalan washboard and said "It's called a pila (sink). I want it to go right above the sink and dishwasher. Why? So that all the kids never complain ever again about having a machine to do their work for them. I've been using a pila to hand wash every dish I've every used and sometimes even my clothes since I got  here. So every time they complain, tell them to look at the pila model. Most of the really rich people don't even have a dishwasher here".  I am grateful for my dishwasher.

He sent John his own personal Pokemon battle letter
