Well Christmas this year was one to remember. It was filled with such great memories. I loved being the wrapping elf in the basement where Will let me use his Ipad to listen to christmas music. I loved staying up late and finally watching the presents come up from the basement when everyone was sleeping after all these years I finally know where they come from:)
I loved during our little family scripture time Kayla was telling us all about baby Jesus while playing with the Nativity sets. It's amazing how much she knows. I love the chaos of everyone trying to get everything wrapped and people yelling, "Don't come downstairs or close your eyes!" I love that this year I got to sleep right next to the tree. All the beds were taken so I was lucky enough to sleep there. We were all laughing at the thought of everybody coming down in the morning and everything was opened..whoops! The big thing this year was Kayla's baby obsession. She saw this baby set online and looked at it and said," I want all of it". So she got all of it. It included basically everything a baby needs and about 6 babies!!! Yikes. and yes I had to sleep with all of them staring at me. When they both came downstairs, Kayla was so overwhelmed and went into Adrienne's lap. Annabelle was very different, she stood there for about 2 minutes with her mouth wide open. It was hilarious!!!! I loved when Annabelle poured her stocking out filled with lots of toys and candy and the only thing she grabs is her new toothbrush and yells" I want to brush my teeth!!!".
I really love seeing the joy of when someone wants to give someone else there gift. I love chirstmas morning and the joy that it brings. It's just not the presents but the feeling of being around family and its a great time. There is always a sentimental gift given. I love seeing my mom or dad tear up really easily. Luckily this year I got a good one. I made my mom a collage of the family and gave her a picture of her and I. My dad really wanted a picture of him and I and I loved pointing out to the family that both frames are on the mantle. I'm thinking favorite child??haha. I loved having William and Amanda come down and Sara and Brad spend the night. We usually always go see a movie on Christmas afternoon so we saw Tron. It was interesting..It was in 3-D. Not sure if I like that but the movie was filled with action and it was fun to see. Christmas was great this year! Not that anyone even looks at my millions of pictures but like always there are tons! (Click to enlarge)
PS. We all noticed that it started to snow Christmas morning and then it stopped in the afternoon. It was picture perfect. just magical
Christmas Eve Pictures. We had a great night filled with good memories. After some scriptures and some words from everyone we all talked about how we missed mark. :(
We all missed this guy so much! Wasn't the same without him. Good job working!The fishers slept over!!! Loved having them there except for the unexpected throw up mess that Annabelle left in my room. I'm thinking too much late night candy..
Sara got a new kitchen tool....yikes!I got a Costco certificate and the first thing I say after Thanks of course is how much?? Everyone was laughing so hard. I mean I was just curious..
