Christmas is in the air and that means setting up the Christmas tree. I always struggle setting up the Christmas tree because I always want it to look just right and having kids help doesn't always work. But my kids love it so I swallow my pickiness so they can enjoy it too.
They had alot of fun! Chris wasn't much into it this year.
But Bentley and Peyton made up for it!
Daddy even helped put on the angel on top!
Charly's hair is finally getting long enough to do fun stuff with! Love it!
The kids with Santa at our ward Christmas party. Yet again, Chris was off somewhere else, but he did get to tell santa what he wanted.
Grandma Sony sent the kids crayon and color books to help pass the days during Christmas break. They loved it!
Charly is so random in what she likes to spend her time doing. Here, she's reading to herself on the stairs!
One weekend while daddy was at a basketball game and Chris was at his dad's, the kids and I made home-made ornaments! They had fun! I had a hard time letting them make a mess, but it was worth it.
We made all shorts of shapes!
And Peyton felt so big using the marble roller.
Charly, we've found, looks extra adorable in hats. So we like to take random pictures of her in different hats.
Her monkey one is one of my personal favorites.
Grannie Annie had us over during Christmas break to decorate sugar cookies with Michelle, Rob, and Paxon!
Christmas Eve we always give the kids pajamas!
They were all thrilled about what they got:)
Kodey's "Santa" gift!
Chris's "Santa" Gift!
Bentley's "Santa" Gift!
Peyton's "Santa" Gift!
Charly's "Santa" Gift!
Christmas morning!!! My mom, Tara, Jaycee, Britnee, and Cody came up and spent a few days! Here's daddy helping Charly open her presents.
Peyton and Bentley had fun checking out what the other got.
It was fun to have cousins to share the holiday with.
Then the present opening continued at Grannie Annies house!
Michelle, Hailie, and I all got the same pajamas so we wanted to show them off!
We got a love sac for Christmas and the kids couldn't be more happy. They think it's a blast!
Charly was helping me go through Bentley too-small clothes to pass them on to Paxon and Ryker.
When Aunt Michelle came over for a hair trim, Peyton convinced her to paint her toes and fingers! She loves being girly:)
