Christmas Festivities

The Christmas festivities continued as we celebrated with my Dad and Sandy, Sateen and John, and Greg and Carilly.

We had everyone over to our house and had a great dinner and a wonderful time.

Anna had a Christmas program at school. She had a short speaking part with her kindergarten crush!

And we tried to get a picture of everyone in their Christmas outfits before church but Adam was not interested. This is the best we got!

Disney Magic

A few weeks ago we went to Disneyland on a slow day and decided to meet lots of characters. We waited in line for the Princesses for the first time since the wait wasn't as long as it usually is - and I think the kids all agreed it was worth the wait.

So here are lots of pictures of the kids with their favorite Disney characters. Next time I need to get in a few of the pictures.

'Tis the Season

Last weekend the holiday fun officially began, and the festivities included our Ward Christmas Party. The primary put on a great Christmas play, and Anna was an angel. As the song ended she sang one more line all by herself. I wasn't sure if that was supposed to be part of the song, but according to the words found here, it was. However, according to our church's version of the song, it was not. So she had a solo - it was pretty cute.

We've seen Santa quite a few times already this year, and they saw him again at the party. It is nice to have all three kids liking Santa. No crying this year!

I don't have any pictures but a few weeks ago we went to a Drive-Thru Nativity in Huntington Beach. I highly recommend it, or anything like it. It was a great way to start off the Christmas season remembering the true reason for the season. The kids are excited to celebrate Jesus' birthday!

Reminiscing about this time of year in Utah. Glad we do not have to deal with real weather.

My current desktop background. I want to go back to NY and take pictures of them sleeping in various locations throughout the city.

Izzy is hardcore!
