Christmas Play and Olibolen!

Jonah was the Innkeeper for our first ever children's play at Eden Bible Church. He did so well at remembering to tell Joseph and Mary to go use the stables.


Ava was an angel and she is right in the middle of this picture (behind Joseph and to the left a bit). The kids were super cute and sang "Away in a Manger" complete with hand motions.

After the Christmas play Poppop and Nana came over for presents and some lunch (thanks for the ham and cabbage rolls, Nana!)

The Food Network's gonna be knocking at the door for these cute chefs any day now...

Jon and I started an Olibolen tradition (just about the best Dutch donut you ever had) the second year we were married. Louise and I did a throwdown (taste test) for the guys this year and made one batch with granny smith apples and raisins and one batch with chocolate chips. The winner by far was the apple & raisin one!
