Christmas Eve and Christmas Day

We celebrated Christmas Eve a day early since John has to work at the Ltach Christmas Eve night. We had ham, funeral potatoes, frog eye, rolls and corn for dinner and enjoyed a program that included the kids singing, playing the piano, a song sung by John, his testimony, watching a Nativity Story and opening up of Jammie made by grandma Linda. It was so nice to have just our little family. We will head to grandma Wendy's tonight for another  Christmas Eve party.
Christmas day was nice except for the fact that Annistyn woke us up at 330 and couldn't understand why we wouldn't want to get up yet...yikes.
The kids enjoyed their gifts and seemed happy with everything.
Their big gifts this year
Bryson got Utes Bedding that he has been begging for, a phone and a bunch of smaller things.
Saedree got a guitar with a bunch of clothes and other little things.
Anni got a karaoke machine and a journey girl doll, and a bunch of girly things
Boston got a scooter, a couple video games and a ton of toys

Video Games

Boston cracks me up on a daily basis. I found him playing Lego Indiana Jones sitting like this.

Boston loves to write names

The other day Boston was asking me how to spell names, I wasn't really paying attention because I was trying to get some Christmas things done. When I looked up and saw that he was actually writing them, I was super impressed. Miss Heidi is a great Preschool teacher.

Mom's birthday

For Moms birthday we all went to Texas Roadhouse. It was delicious as usual. It's super cute when Boston and Trace get together, Trace always tackles Boston and tries to kiss him, it's super cute.

Riley Christmas Party

We always have a good time when we get together with the Rileys. We ended up having a dance party where everyone got crazy :) I have some pretty awesome black mail videos to share when it's needed haha

Garretts Wedding

Garrett was married in December 18th in the Salt Lake Temple. It was beautiful but very cold. It was nice to be able to go up there while the lights were up and the nativity was displayed. We had some time to walk around before our family dinner at the Joseph Smith building. We took the kids to see the Tabernacle and told them about Grandma Stevens and the many years she sang in the Motab. It was a good way to spend time during the Christmas season.

Ward Christmas Party
