In an effort to better document our attempts at making memories, on Dec 3 (day 3) we made cookies as a family and I broke out the digital camera and let Lily and Amara host their own cooking show. They're sweeter than the cookies, and those cookies were stellar-good!
Day 4- Steve's idea: make a Christmas movie. We couldn't let the girls go to bed without showing off some more of their natural talent, so we decided on a story we had just read to the girls called, "The Worst Person's Christmas."
It was a rather cute story, but we didn't have much time to do the book justice. We threw together a few scenes in 20 minutes and called it good. Then we posted it to facebook, and in case you missed it there, it's here too.

And Steve just couldn't get enough of the movie making, so he put the girls to work for 5 more minutes and made this spectacular feature...

Day 5- Lily's idea: Tell the Christmas story or sing some Christmas hymns. Our family sang some nice songs.
Day 6- Lani's idea: Write a letter. We all sat down with cute stationary for Family Night and wrote/ illustrated letters to my cousin who is serving a mission in California. Merry Christmas to the missionaries!
