We haven't been doing all our usual Christmas activites. In the past there were things we just always expected to do when Christmas time rolled around again. With our move we are having to give up some of the old yearly activities and find some new things to add to our celebration at this time of year.
We did drive down to attend our former ward's Christmas Dinner.
Molly was excited to see her friends there too. It was fun to be there with all the people of our old ward again. It felt just like home.
When we attended our new ward's Christmas dinner I forgot to take the camera so I don't have pictures but the we had fun there too. We sang and ate and meet even more new people.
We attended a bell choir concert that was given on Temple hill in Oakland. It was a great opportunity to go and see the grounds all lit up for Christmas.
I didn't realize we hadn't ever taken the kids to the gardens up on the temple. The lower level has some lovely gardens and great view of the bay.
It was a fun event!
