Christmas Eve 2013

It's been a tradition the past few years to host a casual Christmas Eve dinner at our house.  We typically have sushi or some kind of seafood.  Josh always does a great job of preparing the sushi!

One of our service projects this year was to provide gift bags for the moms at the Eugene Mission. These are some of the items we included.

Fiddle Performances + Visiting Valley West

Ronan's turn

A group of us brought our kids to Valley West to visit our dear friend Sasha and to sing Christmas Carols to the residents there. 

Tate was eager to greet everyone and give lots of hugs. :)

More December Fun

Santa came to the EWEB Christmas party and I love that my big boys were willing to join Tate for a picture.  Tate had a lot to say to Santa. :)  We all had a good laugh listening to him describe in detail all of the things we wanted for Christmas.
