Walked to the library on a foggy day. Delightful
All our loot from the library
Made our Hawaii necklaces into ornaments and put the homemade names of Christ on our tree this year.
The library got a new box of dress up and my kids love it. Here they are dressed up like rescue puppies.
We decided to do a little painting in the basement to whiten things up for Bonnie who moved in the 1st of December. It looks soooooo much better! We even painted a mural on the wall that matches the shower curtain and decor.
We had breakfast with Santa at the Helper Auditorium
Our Tree This year- always makes is so cozy at Christmas time.
We went to the park on a warm day, did window clings, and little miss maudie in her swing.
Learning to sit up, and hanging out with Bonnie in the basement.
The kids got to go to the dinosaur museum for a free day to learn about fossils. They got cute necklaces, and dug out fossil and had a blast.
Ward Christmas Breakfast was fun, the kids decorated Christmas cones with candy and had a fun ride from Max. Poor Jordan was in the kitchen the whole time.
Maudie loved playing under the tree and with the presents. We did a lot of reading of Christmas stories from our stash that has over 30 books now. Each night we read scriptures and lit a candle which the kids loved. Josie playing (she is so good at independent play) with our egg carton pirate ship.
Maudie loves to sit on Josie's lap when she watches T.V. and Dylan loves to watch Josie do Preschool on the computer.
Pulled Maudie's hair back in pig tails. She looks so different. We went down to the family history center to look at Sis. Silatoe's many nativites. She was such a sweetheart to help Josie make a craft and the kids loves the nativities.
Our neighbors had a awesome solo cup light ball and I had to make one. It was super easy and turned out so cool. I think next year we will make a couple and hang them instead of Christmas lights.
The weekend before christmas we drove up and met Bart @ temple square and saw all the lights.
It was so fun spending the day watching wrestling. Benson is a sophmore and wrestling varsity. So proud of him.
Finally finished painting my wooden nativity, and got Dylan's two year old portrait from my mom.
Josie and I on our annual mommy daughter date to get our hair cut.
Dylan has the habit of putting toys in the oven. This is when I forgot to check before I turned the oven on. He also did this a week before at my mom's house.
Christmas eve, Brenda and Fran stopped by on their way up to Centerville.
Cousins. The kids got a super cool snowman kit, now all we need is more snow in Price.
Playing Dominion with the brother in laws to escape all the chaos of kids.
We got to go to my Grandpa Charles 80th birthday party. All the Blackburns were there and it was a delight to reflect on my Handsome Grandpa's life.
Josie had a blast at Della's birthday party
Maudie and Cole
My dad built this kids table for all the grand kids for Christmas.
Trying to settle down all the grandkids we sang some songs together from Josie's music class.
The kids got to go sledding and play in the snow while at my parents house.
Because my families house was full we spent two nights at my uncle and aunt Bryce and Emily. Their little boys were so nice to my kids and they had fun going there each night.
We also got to go to a Squires family dinner. There were a lot of cousins there, which is so good because so many live out of state. I got to talk to Lile and Julia. The kids were so tired from the long days so we left a little early. This picture on the left is with my uncle Phil telling stories to all the great grand kids.
