It snowed quite a bunch while we were up in Utah over the holidays. I loved it! Abby had a blast sledding down Grandma & Grandpa Omer's front yard too!
and licked our gloves! Life was good. Well, until the snow soaked through our pants and we thought we were freezing to death! What can you expect, we're Arizonans...and proud of it! :D

Times at the Omer's home are never slow or dull! It was wonderful getting to be with family through the holiday times! This is Dave's Mom and Dad for those who do not know.
I love it that our kids are getting old enough to remember relatives that live far away. Especially Abby talking about them long after we have seen any of them. :)
The famous Utah Aunts! We love you all!

Pheobe had me this year for her secret sibling...and it was funny, because I was WITH her when she bought this pizza stone! I secretly hoped she had me...and was delighted when I found out she DID!
They love their Grandpa!
Talent time--haha, ya right! I try anyway. I'm going to also try and get some video clips of everyone elses' talents on here soon. It was a great talent show this year.
Guess whose legs? Britta? :)
We ate yummy food, and many of us left with some too!

Santa was SO excited to give his awesome Craigslist find to Abby on Christmas morning! He could hardly wait!
She likes it! Woohoo!
She made us eggs and muffins too! Yum!
I emphasize "our" Christmas morning because we had Christmas morning on Dec 24th this year. We were leaving to go to Queen Creek and then on to SLC, UT, on Christmas Day (the 25th), around noon...for over a week long vacation...so the idea came and floated around until we decided it would be a much more enjoyable Christmas morning to do ours a day early. And OHHH were we SOOO glad we did. It was wonderful! The kids knew no differently...they would've celebrated Christmas morning in August if we said so! lol
This is what a shoe is for, right? Eating. We only got Joey a couple present, so I wrapped his shoes separately! :)
Daddy got Abby a princess jacket! Yay!
Here you can see two of the fun surprises Dave gave to me for Christmas:
1- An awesome double stroller/bike trailer!
2- Our very own Talbot Toss game set that he made!
I loved all of my presents--thank you sweetie for all the thought that went into finding fun gifts that you knew I would love!

Some good friends of ours invited us over to decorate Christmas houses. Abby was in HEAVEN! An entire TABLE full of candy? Did I die and go to heaven? :D
We had a great time... building our house...and eating it!

I love Christmas Tree season! The house always smells wonderfully festive and the lights bring such a warm feeling to the entire house. It just begins the many memories for the season...good ones!
Abby LOVED helping this year. And really both kids did great at leaving the ornaments alone. Well, except for the candy canes. They slowly disappeared as the days went by. (LOL) But that's how it should be right?
We have an old string of lights that we didn't need or use this year. So we just left them by an outlet and plugged them in whenever the kids were tempted to pull other lights off the tree. They had a blast playing with them in their laps!
Of course it was IMPOSSIBLE to get a picture of Joey with lights while holding STILL! So, sorry, you get blurry one again! Just know there was pure joy on his face every time he got to touch them!
This was hanging ornaments "Abby style"!
