Chirstmas Program!

My little man was in this 1st grade Christmas Program yesterday. He was adorable. He's a pretty good dancer, if I do say so myself!And if you listen closely at the end of the second video, you will here my little girl singing along to the music!

Loving the holiday!

Chris loves gingerbread! He wanted me to make it so he could use the cookie cutters, but I'm still working on the cooking part of my motherly duties. So I bought a little gingerbread house and told him we could put it together and then he could eat it. He was excited about that. He really liked using the icing. The finished product! Peyton didn't do much to help except shake the table while we were trying to ice the roof. But what would the holidays be like with out kids.......not to much fun.
Chris said this was his pop tart. He said it was very good and that he wanted to share some with Peyton. It was a little to hard for Peyton, but Chris sure enjoyed it.
Christmas is so much fun when you have a wonderful family to enjoy it with. I am so excited to see my two beautiful kids wake up Christmas morning and share with them the excitement that radiates out of them at this time of year. I love my family and the only thing that could make this holiday season brighter.....would be to share it with more family!

Ben's little sister, Michelle, got married at the end of November. We were lucky enough to find some one to work for Ben so we were able to go. I wasn't able to get many pictures due to freezing weather and a professional photographer. But here is what I was able to take. Here is Derek, Hailey, Peyton, Jacqulyn, Kyle, Chris, Dayn, and beautiful bride, Michelle. I took the oppertunity to use the beautiful decorations to get a few pictures of my cute kids. Peyton pretty much has to be where I put her, but Chris doesn't so I didn't get as many of him.
He was good for a few, but as you can tell, would rather look at uncle Kyle's camera, not mine. But they still turned out pretty good.

I was also able to get a family picture of the four of us. They didn't turn out to bad either.
Before we left to head home, Grannie Annie wanted to get a picture of her with Peyton and Chris. They love their grandma so much.
It was a wonderful weekend. I have the most amazing in-laws in the world. I am so grateful for that. I am also grateful for the temple. For the work that is done there and the opportunity we have to be sealed to our families for time and all eternity. What a blessing!
