While we were down in Utah over Christmas, we went sledding with my family. We did it the lazy way, behind a 4-wheeler, but it was a ton of fun. Ziah was cold most of the time, and wanted to be held a lot.

The Saturday after Christmas, we had the Moon Family Christmas party. I was in charge of it. Jake and I decided to do a dinner and serve the kinds of food that Mary and Joseph would have eaten. I assigned each family a part of the nativity to talk about or a musical number. We started off by talking about Mary and Joseph and then we ate. We had salmon, rice, pita bread, hummus, fruit, nuts and sparkling grape juice.
After we ate, we finished up the nativity with people talking about all the other parts. I forgot about taking pictures until the end, so I don't have a lot of anything.

A couple days after Christmas, we went down to Utah for my family's Christmas party. We stayed at Milisa and Lance's house while we were there. One night, Tean was playing with Brody and Lance and all of a sudden he yelled out that his tooth came out. His second front tooth had been loose for a long time and he was afraid to just yank it out. It finally came out!
He wanted to wait until we got back home to set it out for the tooth fairy because he wasn't sure if the tooth fairy would find his tooth at his cousin's house.
After we opened our presents and talked with my parents, we headed up to Jake's parent's house to spend Christmas with them. We took up our present that we got his parents, a "Bug Assault." It was a gun that shoots salt at flies and kills them. It was pretty cool. Everyone loved using it to kill all the flies that were around the house.
On Christmas Morning, Tean woke up around 8:15 and came into our room so excited because Santa had eaten all of the cookies and milk that he put out the night before. We had to wake up Ziah, then we went to see what Santa brought and open up presenents.

On Christmas Eve, we went up to Jake's brother's house in Idaho Falls to celebrate. We first had our dinner of food that Mary and Joseph would have eaten. We had fish, rice, flat bread, hummus, olives, nuts, fruit and lamb. It was really good. I really like it because it helps me to think about the time when Jesus was born.
After dinner, we did the Nativity. Tean wanted to be a shepherd this year.
He was a shepherd with his cousin Ben.
After acting out the Nativity, everyone got to choose one Christmas song to sing. Ziah just wanted to play with the tree and the presents during the singing. I love the spirit that the singing brings.
Ziah thought it was funnier to bang his head with his present instead of opening it.
