So I didn't get out the digital camera and take pictures on Christmas day we were only using the other camera so my pictures are limited. We had a great Christmas and thanks to everyone for the fantastic gifts. We have been enjoying all of them. The boys got a tent and have been having fun in it. They even slept in it. Well for part of the night! We've enjoyed making gingerbread houses and playing the Wii and have been enduring strep...yuck . We even tried McCall with some solid food and she did pretty well. We surprisingly don't have much snow but we'll see what the new year brings. Hope everyone had a great holiday!

Ward Christmas Party

We had our ward Christmas party on Saturday. It was a lot of fun. A fantastic program was put together. They had a really good message sent from it. Mo participated in a rap for the program and I thought all the guys did a great job. Mo is the one wearing the ski goggles. The primary kids also dressed up as angels and sang two songs. I'll try post the video of that. Tanner was in the front spinning circles and swaying from side to side. It reminded me of my sister Shalene lifting her dress up and down at our was christmas party lots of years ago!

O Christmas Tree O Christmas Tree...

We headed out to the forest this past weekend and after enduring cold winds, crying children we found our christmas tree. This is our second time cutting down our own tree and it was so much fun. McCall was tired and didn't like the FREZZING wind but she eventually fell asleep. Here is our tree in the wild before we cut it and after we decorated it. I think I should buy some really big ornaments to fill in the gaps! It's fun getting a real tree but I do miss the nice big full FIR trees we had growing up!

countdown calendars and Thanksgiving

We had a great Thanksgiving and were able to enjoy visits from my brother Lance, Grandpa and Grandma Hemming and Great Gma Betty. Dinner turned out great despite Mo starting a fire from the turkey drippings! The boys also made the traditional countdown christmas calendars. They ask first thing in the morning for their candy of the day.
