Well, I have finally found a moment of alone time, it seems, for this whole month. I can't believe how crazy it has been, and I can't believe how long it has been since I have blogged. Sorry for not updating. I told Dave I was going to loose all of my blogger friends if I didn't post something soon. So I thought I would post a few of our Christmas pics for the Holiday season.
Christmas gift exchange at Grandma Leavitt's house. The kids all drew names around Thanksgiving time and we traded gifts on Christmas Eve. It is so much fun for the kids to shop for each other and give them their gifts. We then usually go to the Santa Clara Christmas Eve program but decided to skip it this year because my whole family is here for the wedding and we spent Christmas Eve with them.
Christmas Eve at Grandma Jensens's home. These are a few pictures of our party at Grandma Jensen's playing a little Christmas style fear factor. It was a lot of fun. Even my parents played and were good sports about it. Thanks to Jessica, Kaydee and Shelbee for the great party and good food.

It's finally DECEMBER 6th and Emilie made it to her 7th Birthday! YEA!!! She woke up really early this morning and wanted to open just one present. Her new outfit (hence the picture). The rest she will wait for later in the day to open. She chose not to have a party and wants to go shopping for her own present and out to dinner. I love her for not making me throw a party. She makes great choices already! HAPPY BIRTHDAY EMILIE, WE LOVE YOU!!! (if you look really close you can see that she lost her other front tooth and now she just has to ask for her 2 front teeth from santa for Christmas.)

On Monday we went to the Nativity at Tuachan. My mom's ward did the Nativity and my sister and her fience were Mary and Joseph. It was neat to see. After the program Santa is waiting outside for all the little kids to tell him what they want for christmas. A really nice man offered to take our family picture with Santa and then he emailed it to us. It was very thoughtful of him since we didn't know who he was. (just a sad note to mention that this is our only family picture with Josh in it.)

This is the best thing about living in St. George in December! You can eat fudgecicles in December---outside!!! My mom took this picture the other day while she was watching my boys. They are the best of brothers (most of the time!)
