 We spent Christmas Eve at Grandma Muir's house.
 We made gingerbread and sugar cookies for Santa.

 The kids got their Christmas Eve jammies.
 Addie discovered that Santa ate the cookies and drank his milk on Christmas morning!
 Santa even brought her a Lalaloopsy.
 Reggie got a racetrack from Santa and loves it.
He had his first candy cane and thought it was delicious.

We spent Christmas morning with Dad and Paula then went up to Grandma Liechty's for the afternoon. Of course I forgot my camera so we have no pictures of that, but it was a nice Christmas day.

I Spy

This almost seems wrong to post, but it was too funny not to.
Look closely, do you notice something out of place? 2 somethings?
Adelaide came running into the kitchen in her dance clothes with this silly look on her face. I didn't notice at first but then she announced, "look mom, I have boobs!".

Closer to Christmas

 Addie and her kindergarten class sang Christmas songs to us on Friday. It is fun to see her participating in school activities. She seems so grown up.

My dad took Addie to St. George with him Friday night so we took Reggie to the Provo Towne Center mall to ride the train. He loved it.

Then we took him to see the lights at Temple Square. It was beautiful as usual.

We went to the old tabernacle to warm up and found that they were broadcasting a Christmas concert from the new tabernacle. I snapped this picture from where we were sitting, I think it looks awesome.

I can't believe there are only six days until Christmas. This year has gone by so quickly. Adelaide is out of school for two weeks which should be fun. Do you know what I'm excited about? The winter solstice. The shortest day of the year is almost here. This means on to more daylight!

Almost Christmas

 Adelaide is really excited this year. 
So excited that she dressed up as Santa at Ma and Pa Idaho's house over Thanksgiving.
 We finally got our tree up today. This was the first year Adelaide really wanted to help.
She did an awesome job hanging all of her ornaments from great-grandma Liechty.
 Reggie is such a good little helper. He loves to help me do things around the house. 
But then there are Christmas ornaments. He likes to destroy them instead.
The tree looks gorgeous and it smells fresh and delicious.
We are finally feeling a little festive around here:)
