Christmas Morning

Strike a Pose!

What's up with the orange?!

Christmas Eve

After we put on our Christmas Eve PJ's, sprinkled a little reindeer food on the front lawn, and put out truffles and milk for Santa we tracked the jolly elf on the computer for a few minutes. This was hilarious! Emma was frantic once she realized Santa was fast approaching. She couldn't get to bed fast enough!

We loved having Jean & Michelle with us over Christmas.

Mele Kalikimaka!

I learned this song in my kindergarten class and it was so fun!
I want to go to Hawaii for Christmas. Mele Kalikimaka to you all!

We Believe!

We just got home from the ward Christmas brunch. The girls have been on the front porch - they're trying to see reindeer on the church roof. Emma wanted to ask Santa for a Barbie computer and Abbie wanted lipgloss but in the sheer terror of the moment Emma asked for a doll and Abbie asked for a surprise. Emma left Santa's lap saying. "Mom, I asked for a doll and I don't even want a doll." Right now, they are both drafting a detailed correction letter .

This morning Emma and I put on our artist hats and created this adorable gingerbread girl. Emma named her Sparkle. Kindergarten art homework really stretches me!

Love 'em

Today is one of those days that you wake up and remember how blessed you really are. These are some of my favorite blessings.

December Eve

Last night we rang in the month of December with our families' first annual December Eve party. We watched Elf, ate melt in your mouth peppermints and the girls slept under the Christmas Tree. This morning we woke up to a winter wonderland. It was all quite magical.
