Christmas Morning is here!

Abbies big present was a princess art set.  

Joey's was a basketball hoop.

Looks like a little boy on Christmas morning huh?  Oh wait, he is a boy on Christmas morning.  ;)

It was a a fun Christmas morning together as a family.  So much fun to watch the kids get excited about opening presents and what not. Special day!

Chrismas Eve on Natal Street

We drove up to Mesa and spent Christmas Eve with all my (Amber's) family that live up there.  We did it at Heather's cute house this time, and had a wonderful time!  

Heather arranged for us all to help make hot chocolate mallos rolled in chocolate and candy cane pieces!  Mmmm! 

My sister gorgeous!

My daddy-o!  Passing out the presents like the good ole days. :D

My sister Jen at 7 months prego!  (so glad she was home and not in New Mexico's hospital!)

The little cleptos!  They opened presents without any of us knowing...then we didn't know who they were supposed to go to!  LOL The little stinkers!

Slap bracelet joy!

Abby, Sam & Jen.

Cute couple... Heather & her boyfriend, Bobby, next to their gorgeous tree!

Candybar game!!  

We had so much fun playing this!

Nice catch of Dave huh?  :)

Go Abby!

I love this picture!  I love my family!  I'm so grateful we got to be with them this day.  They mean the world to me, and I love being able to be with them for holidays...and well, any day I can get!  Merry Christmas!

Abby in the Children's Choir

A friend in our ward started a children's choir and Abby was super excited to join!  

This was on their performance day.  They were adorable! Abby loved singing the fun Christmas music!

The girl's favorite song was the one where they got to play kazoos.  Are you surprised? 

Here are a couple little videos of the girls singing.  They are kinda long, so no pressure to watch the whole thing.

A Choo-choo They Can Chew Up

Ginger bread train time!  Can you feel the excitement in the air? I thought the kids were going to pass out they were so ecstatic!

Ta-da!  All done.  If you look hard, Joey's face has quite a green tint to it! :)

Ok, this is the kid shelf...they can play with these decorations.  But the reason I took this picture is because of where Abby chose to hang the mistletoe! :)

Making the Tree Even More Pur-tee

It's finally time to decorate the tree!  Yay!

So not ALL of the ornaments were a foot above the ground. :)

Lift me! :)

Abbies turn.  Man these kids loved decorating the tree!

I spy a Joey.  This isn't the complete final tree product.  I added red and gold ribbon looping around it that looked gorgeous!

New lights this'll take some getting used to.

Let's see...I would be 6 months prego here.  :)  The holidays really made time fly through November and December.  Not bad!

Oh, Christmas Tree

We tried something different this year...Costco!  

We had no idea that this was how it would come.  In the back of a semi.  :)  We had heard they were amazing trees and an amazing price.  

So on top of the car it went!  Here goes nothing.  Totally opposite of anything we've ever done. 

We got it home & were ready for the unveiling!

....cut the string...

and VOILA!  She was really a gorgeous tree.  We felt blessed!
