Christmas Eve Jammies

Every Christmas Eve we go up to visit Parley's parents in Bountiful. This year it was a smaller group with just our (wild) gang and Kim and her family. We had a great time visiting but Josh was literally bouncing off the walls. He was digging it all and couldn't wait until the end of the night when we got to open jammies. Here they are. Lauren and Josh got Sponge Bob and Taylor got Mario Kart. I think they were happy :)

Temple Square

Last night (Saturday) we decided to go downtown, along with 80% of the STATE. It was crowded! There was also a Jazz game (against the Lakers, whom we saw coming out of their hotel), a Mormon Tabernacle Choir concert, High School concerts and dances. There was a lot of hustle and bustle but it just added to the excitement. It was also somewhat "warm." Which means it was in the high 30's instead of the teens. I think we all had a great time and are glad we can check that off our list of "things to do" for this Christmas season.

You Better Watch Out

Santa Claus came to town. We had a church party up in the canyon at Camp Tracy Lodge and after dinner and a little program, Santa came!! It was crunch time for the kids to figure out what they wanted to tell Santa. Lauren almost didn't do it because she wasn't quite sure what she wanted yet and she was afraid to tell Santa something and then change her mind. Let's hope Santa pulls through :)

Let it All Begin

And... let it snow. It's so cold. I don't want the snow but the kids really do and Christmas is all about the kids, right? We've got all the decorations up. Some present under the tree (from cousins) and the sugar frenzy continues (it started before Halloween).
