What a time with the Wii!



The children were lucky enough to get a Nintendo Wii from Abbi and Abba this Christmas. It took them a little bit to get used to it, but as you can tell they are getting it now! Matt and I have even played a best of three tennis match and, of course, I won!

Christmas Eve & Luke 2




As we do most Christmas Eves we again acted out Luke 2 with the children. We spent the evening with the McRaes and it was a great time! The children did a fantastic job playing their roles and they loved every minute of it! Selah was the star as baby Jesus...she didn't start to fuss till the very end. The night ended with a gingerbread house making contest and some hot homemade donuts!

We've finally trimmed our tree!


Due to a mischievous little two year old, we wanted to wait as long as possible to put up our tree this year. It went off without a hitch and we must say we think it looks pretty darn good. The children loved it as we listened to a little Mariah Christmas music, drank hot cocoa, and got a fire going. It was a very festive FHE tonight in the Nickel home!

The Second Half...

Here are Brower(3), Selah(2mo.), Ira(2)... the last half of the children. Selah looks very comfortable sitting in between the two brutes. Matt says she looks like Snoop Dogg in this pictures. She is still swimming in newborn clothes. She's growing taller, but she needs some chunk!
