Christmas Eve

 Christmas Eve we headed south to Syracuse to have pizza with Grandma Susan and Grandpa Jim.  Such a great tradition!  Kristi and Brad were there as well as Kevin and Brittany and their little fam.
Super yummy and great to see family!

After we survived the treacherous drive home through the canyon we opened a couple presents.  The kids each open 2 presents on Christmas Eve.  One is PJ's and the other is one they exchange with each other.
 Super cool boat for Dillon.
 Squinkies for Taya
 Little People dump truck for Beckham

 Dillon, Michael, and I all got Denver Broncos PJ's!  Taya and Beckham got matching Reindeer ones!
 Okay just a little tidbit about our tree...   Moving from Phoenix to Logan was a bit of a downsize in housing.  Therefore we had absolutely no room for a Christmas Tree.  So we made a paper tree and stuck it to the wall!  Takes up zero space and we all had fun coloring and making ornaments to decorate it!!!
 Notice the Snowman family guarding the tree:  Dillon, Beckham, Taya, Amy, and Michael

Happy Christmas Eve!!!

All Dressed Up!

New Christmas outfits!  Super cute and all dressed up!

Christmas Party at Grandpa Jim & Grandma Susan's

 We had a great party at Grandma Susan and Grandpa Jim's house!

 All the kiddos waiting for presents!  (I love Dillon's face...he doesn't have much patience) :)
 Woo hoo a Marshmallow Gun!!!
 Cutie patooties Taya and Kylie
 Taya with some of her loot.  Hello Kitty necklace and Snow White shoes!
 Yes!  Legos!!!  (love the way the sun is striping his face)
Michael with his favorite cereal.  At our house we don't call it Cinnamon Toast Crunch, we call it Daddy's Kind.  :)
 Here I am with Milk's favorite cookie (and mine)!
Here's Beckham with all his loot!  (He was asleep while the initial party was going on so he got to open all by himself later)

What a great party!!!  Thanks for all the great stuff!!!

Christmastime Festivities

 We did a few fun things leading up to Christmas.  Including:
Hitting up the SLC Temple lights with Grandma Susan and Grandpa Jim

 All snuggly
 Hitting up City Creek and checking out the Christmas decor

 aaaw what a cutie pie!
 There were some super cool decorated balls in the front windows.  They were done with all different kinds of candy!
 then we topped off the evening playing in the food court playland
 (love the face!)

 So fun!!!
 The kids got to visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Packer Christmas party!
Beckham wasn't sure what to think.
 Dillon got up before I could get a good pic
 This is the best I got of Taya as well  (oh well)
 We had a bunch of treacherous canyon driving
 (White knuckles on the wheel!)
 Taya and Dillon made gingerbread houses with Grandma Janet and Grandpa Ron
Very cool and fun!!!
