Christmas Recap of 2012

Now that we're on into the new year I am finally posting Christmas pictures. This season felt particularly busy to me. Actually I've felt really busy since the school year started which is also when Brennan was born. So, maybe this week I've felt a sudden slow down, other than the usual cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc.

The weather for the month of December was so nice. The kids were able to spend a lot of time doing this......

 
 



The Tulsa Christmas Parade....



Brittany and Timothy walked in the parade with the church. This is the best picture I could get because I was trying to look for them and hold Brennan, too. All the kids were invited to ride on the city bus that went behind our float, but they didn't want to because then they wouldn't get the candy that gets thrown out by all the passersby.

Well, at least their priorities ar in order.




 


We also had a lot of treats to make.......



 I was able to find a gingerbread train kit this year so we were able to avoid having to do an Annual Sanchez Family Gingerbread Train. However, the kids asked if they could put it together, I said yes, and that thing was put together and torn apart before I could even think about getting the camera. Oh, well.



And then there's this cutey girl.........








I can't find any of the pictures and videos I took of the Children's Christmas program at church. All of the kids participate in decorating certain parts of the sanctuary. The younger kids take presents up to the stage to put under the tree. I was afraid Travis wouldn't walk up front, because he is basically attached to me like super glue (all the time). But, when it was time for them to walk, he went right up there along with the other kids and placed his present under the tree. He even saw me sitting off to the side when he walked by and he just kept on going. I was so proud!


A sweet, older couple from our church teaches the younger kids' sunday school, and every year they make screened tshirts for all the kids in the class. These were the best pictures I could get of these busy little ones.


 
 Bailey, Brennan and Travis







Christmas eve was spend at my brother and sister in law's new house. Here is the quick picture I got of all the kids before we left. I've been wanting to get a good picture for months now, but it seems there's never the chance. We're always in a rush, or somebody's off doing something else. But, this time I told everybody to "SIT!" so I could at least get a picture.







And one cute Santa Baby
 



At brother and sister in laws' with cousins.........
