We are ready for you
Christmas has arrived!
The stall, to admire the loot!
The walk right past your stuff
The my sister got cool stuff
Wait?!?! What? I got cool stuff too?
A ball!!!

A giraffe too? Awesome!
Wow! My sister got cool stuff!

The girls really racked up this year! Check out the surprise gift from Santa in the back. (It's a trampoline)
But of course, this was the best gift of all from Santa. Headboard! BOOM!
We had a wonderful Christmas!

Trying to get pictures is like pulling teeth

All I want ALL I WANT
Is a decent picture of my children in front of the Christmas tree.

Gosh darn it! Please! Next year Mommies Christmas wish is to have a picture of my family in front of the Christmas tree!

Christmas Eve

I love this picture! It's awesome
Santa came on Christmas Eve for a quick visit. Hannah was thrilled, Sarah not so much. We are trying to establish what our traditions are. This year the girls watched "how the Grinch stole Christmas", we sprinkled reindeer food on our lawn, read the Christmas story from the scriptures and read "Twas the night before Christmas" I think we did something else but I can't remember. We did have a wonderful time. We wish you a very Merry Christmas!

We love to ice skate

We love to play like we are ice skating. We roll back our rug and put on our socks and play classical music and sing "I love to ice skate, ice skate, ice skate!" Record hit quality right there! Well, recently added to her "ice skates"
If you can't tell Hannah shoved candles down her sock and "laced" up her shoes.

Zoo lights

We had a party

The first real birthday party that had friends and extra presents and awesome pirate hats/crowns. 
The attendees included a slew of adorable children, cool uncles, a great grandmother and
Two awesome grandparents.
We went to McDonalds. (The first birthday party of mine, that I can remember, was at the McDonalds red caboose) It was a lot of fun. ( I also didn't have to do anything which was major plus!)
Oh and the little sis attended too!
An awesome grandparent kept her entertained'
Happy Birthday Sweetheart!!!

The water park

Have I mentioned that we had a great time on our family trip? If I haven't let me mention it here. Unfortunately, our last day was without Daddy though. I REALLY wish he was there. Anyway, our last day was at an indoor water park! Awesome!
They had a little baby area with little shoots of water and a slide, A wave pool,  four Big people slides. (One of those scared the ba gee gees out of me. I was sure I was going to break my neck. But didn't stop me from doing it again) a bigger kids play area that had a slide and big bucket that would pour tons of water on you and a waverunner type thing.

That's Brent on the way waverunner.
Here's this gorgeous girl! 
 you might want to shield your eyes for this one!

Dollywood at Christmas

Have you ever been at Christmas time?
Oh my it's fabulous!
Reminds me a lot of my time at Temple Square.
We went this year with my sister and her family and grandma Jan.
Buckled in and ready to go!
Whoop whoop!
Love this guy!

Sorry for the whatever face this is. I was trying to get my daughter to have a happy face.
We took a break from the freezing cold weather and ate a warm hearty meal!
Everyone laugh at Grandma Jan!
My gorgeous little girl!
Merry Christmas y'all!!!
