Geocaching..... on Christmas

Eric had a little trouble with this one. It required Riley's assistance to retrieve so Eric could sign the log. Rule one of geocaching: carry a step ladder or always take a kid with you. :)

Eric and Riley at the point where the earthquake struck in April. Yes, it's a geocache, called an Earth Cache. Had to do a few caches with Eric's new gps. Plus, he got a Signal the Frog toy. He's either been really good this year or somehow fooled Santa.

Birthday Fun

Yesterday was Nolen's birthday party. Here he is playing basketball with Grandpa. I'm not sure who had more fun.

In case anyone needs any last minute gift ideas, Riley and Alexis seem to really like playing with baby toys. They were playing with some of the toys that Nolen received.

Church Christmas Play

Today was the Christmas play at church. Brody had the honor of playing baby Jesus. Here he is with Mary (aka Sarah) and Joseph (aka Ray). The kids all did a wonderful job!!

Riley's Christmas Program

Riley is the kid with his hands over his eyes.

Riley is to the right of the girl in the yellow shirt.

Santa showed up after the kids had their program. This is as close to Santa as he would get. It's alot better than most years. Each year we take him to see Santa and he cries and won't even come near him. He even got a present, a book. As we were leaving, he asked me "where's the reindeer & sleigh at?" I'm thinking where'd this come from? So I tell him that they are out back hiding from everyone. We repeat this process and he finally accepts my answer.
