Zoo Lights at the Zoo..2009

Well, we went down to Salt Lake to look at some lights after Christmas and really wanted to go to Heritage Park but they closed the 23rd. So, as we are driving through Heritage Park we notice all the lights across at the Zoo and I remembered they did the Zoo lights and the kids said lets do that. So we got there the last hour it was open and went in. It was really neat and you were able to still see some of the animals and then all the lights they had through out the Zoo was incredible it really takes a lot of time to do this. It also would have been a lot more fun had it not been 16 degrees, just a tad bit chilly. But us and my mom and my brother Tyler braved it and made we made it through with a little hot chocolate and thankful to the indoor pets so that we could defrost a little and start again..

Christmas Night and White Elephant gift..

On Christmas night my brother, his wife and there 2 kids (my cute niece and nephew) came up from Salt Lake and we had Christmas again. Thanks again guys for everything! My nephew loved his ball he got and my niece loved her stuff and being able to play with the boys. The adults this year also decided to do a white elephant gift exchange and as you can see Joe grabbed a gift opened it up and tried to pass it along because as you can see it he didn't really want the raggyann and andy dolls (but my sister in law wanted them so he was happy to give them up) he then opened another gift that was stolen away from my brother and then he ended up with this picture of himself that I blew up to poster size. I also did one of my dad that neither one knew about and so it made it really funny. Everyone got pretty much funny gifts, but all in all it was a lot of fun and hope to continue the tradition for many years..

Christmas Morning 2009..

Well Christmas morning was a hit! And from what you can tell it looked like a tornado hit the living room. But the kids had fun and that is all that matters.. They didn't get up to early (about 8:00 am) and after everything was said and done my brother who also came up from Vegas cooked us breakfast (yes amazing) but actually it was all really good. And then after breakfast you can see some of the after effects, a lot of sleeping and lounging around, but that is what I love best about Christmas Day is that there isn't anything else to do but play and sleep......

Christmas Eve.. 2009

On Christmas Eve my parents were able to come up from Las Vegas and be with us. The kids were so excited because we usually don't have family around for the Holidays so it was a special treat. The boys got to open there PJ's (our tradition) and then one other gift. We then baked cookies to set out for Santa and then sent them off to bed so we could bring down the rest and finally get to bed..

Ward Christmas Party 2009..

We had our Ward Christmas party last weekend and it was so wonderful. Dinner was great and they had a choir from a local Junior High come and perform and they were just wonderful... They even got our Bishop involved it was great. They even got someone in the ward to dress up as santa and take turns with the kids, it was a lot of fun! They loved it so much and I thought Jake was going to pass out he was so excited to see Santa.. It also was great to do it there at the church cause it saves me a trip to the Mall. Overall it was a great night and was nice to visit and enjoy an evening as a Family.
Merry Christmas to all...
