Christmas 2010

We have had a wonderful Christmas break so far. All the kids were home except for Isaac. Bailey and Chad flew in on Dec. 16th. and Paige, Brent and Leslie got here on Dec. 21. We have had a lot of fun playing games, visiting, and eating (too much!).

Paige, Brent, Leslie and Abby waiting for the annual EPR family Christmas Eve Program. Earlier in the evening Abby was helping Paige with her hairdoo. That explains why Paige is sporting such a fine looking hair style.
Miranda and Remi
Bailey reading her annual Christmas poem.
Eric and Abby playing the chimes. Angels We Have Heard on High.
The night ends with everyone including Blue listening to Eric read the Christmas story from Luke 2.

 Family photo with us letting our "Lights shine." This year our special guest was Isaac from Brazil. He wrote a Christmas letter that I shared during the program and the yearly ornament that was given out was a candle stick to remind us to let our lights shine.
Christmas morning...Leslie's first Christmas.

 Opening gifts! I think Eric is surprised.
 Abby got a Cell phone! and Yes, she is wearing frog pajamas.
Chad and Bailey manning the garbage sacks. We accumulated a bunch of trash!
Everyone gathered around the speaker phone talking to Isaac in Brazil. We had two pages of questions to ask him. It sure was good to hear his voice.
