Friday when the rest of the family arrived we celebrated a belated Christmas Eve. It was great to be all together again!
We had a small program where Amanda and Nolan played Sylvia's Christmas Carol for us. Amanda also showed us how her fancy accordion works.
I sang The Little Cradle Rocks Tonight in Glory to see if they thought singing lessons this year had helped my voice. Although it appears I'm not ready for Carnegie Hall, I have made significant improvement in confidence and intonation!
Ed read the Christmas story from Luke 2. Crystal stayed awake the whole time, despite working on only a few hours sleep, a time change and an adjustment from working the night shift the night before!
Afterwards we introduced Nolan to the joys of Farkle. We had a rollicking game, full drum rolls and loud screaming! Crystal was a big winner because she was willing to risk it all!
