Christmas Present

For Christmas this year my mom got family pictures for us. Here are some of my favorites!

Christmas 2010

We had a great Christmas this year. I hope everyone else did as well!

School Sing A Long

I love the sing along at the school. The kids love it too.

A Christmas Carol

It was so cute, Braydon's class put on the play A Christmas Carol, the day before school was out. Braydon was Bob Cratchet in the play. It was 17 minutes long and was one of the best plays. I loved it.

Sewing Projects

We drew my Sister-in-law Erin's family this year for Christmas. Her living rooms colors are Blue and Black with an accent of yellow. So I made her this quilt to cuddle in while they watch movies.

I also drew my brother Todd. His favorite college team is West Virgina. I wanted to make him a blanket also but couldn't find any fabric with their logo. I ended up taking their logo and blowing it up and making my own pattern. I love how bright it is. It was a lot of fun to make. When he opened it he told me it was about time I spent my time working on a descent team. hahaha!

Sugar Cookie Tradition

Every year we make sugar cookies and either spend a Saturday or a Family Night decorating. This year it was our Family Home Evening Activity. Alex was our baker this year and she did a great job.

This is one of our favorite activities.

All I want for Christmas is my 2 front teeth

On December 23 Hunter lost his front tooth. "Boy that would have been cool if the Tooth Fairy and Santa would come the same day." Hunter said.

Well since the Tooth Fairy is a slacker and forgot to come to our house on the 23rd it all worked out, since on December 24th Hunter lost his second front tooth. "Cool!! I am going to get money for Christmas!" Hunter exclaimed!

Luckily, Santa and the Tooth Fairy were on the ball and did come the same night!

These are only the 3rd and 4th teeth Hunter has ever lost. I was getting a little worried but it all looks good now. :)

Temple Square 2010

Last night was beautiful. The fog made the temple look so pretty. It was a great night. I am so glad we got the chance to go. It is a tradition to always go the Sunday closest to my moms birthday. It is usually the first Sunday of December that we go. We always ride tracks so that we get a chance to visit and don't have to worry about parking. It is just part of the tradition. The kids love it, and so do I.

Santa Claus 2010

Every year Santa comes to the the big Woffinden Christmas party. Sidney was babysitting but the other kids went with us.

New Ornaments

Each year we get the kids an ornament that goes along with the things they have been doing or that is important to them to represent the year.

This year we got:

Sidney a Cell Phone- with so many texts each day what else would we or could we do for her.

Alex a flute- She is doing amazing with her flute. I am so proud of her.

Braydon a scout shirt- he has loved scouts from the time he was 5 and I was the Webelos leader. He would be getting his arrow of light this month except we aren't having pack meeting. So January!

Hunter an artist palette- he loves to draw and create this was the perfect thing for him this year.

Hunter's Baptism

Yesterday was a great day! Hunter has grown up way to fast. He was so excited to get baptized. He was sweet. He loved the feeling he had when he was baptized. He said that he felt so good and warm inside. I am so proud of him and the choices that he has made.
