Family Movie Night

Grandpa Ron and Grandma Connie had gotten Emma a biographical book about Laura Ingalls Wilder.  Emma enjoyed it so much that we have been reading "Little House in the Big Woods".  Shortly after we began reading it, the kids started playing "Little House."  Emma works in the kitchen, and Caleb lines up all the stuffed animals we have in the house and shoots them with his Pooh-Bear gun.  Then they smoke the meat and store some of it for winter. =) 
My mom found a DVD that had two Christmas episodes of Little House on the Prairie.  So, we all got cozy on the couch and enjoyed an episode together.  It was great fun, and happened to be an episode that told the story of Baby Jesus.  Now, every time Emma sees a Christmas star, she says, "Happy Birthday Baby Jesus" just like Carrie did in that episode.  It's sweet.  And, Noah even held Ezra's hand during the show:

How cool! We've been really into those stories lately too. They have one season on dvd, but we haven't started the books yet. I used to love those!
