I love these two so much!


Fisher put chopsticks in his mouth today and said, "Mom, I'm a whale-rus!" (not walrus...)  :)

Taylor text this to me. I love that man more than I am capable of explaining! He is perfect for me!!

All ready for FHE tonight!

One last picture before Grandpa, Uncle Clint, and Aunt Natasha leave. Sad!! It sure was fun while they  were here though. We made some good memories! I sure love my family and am very, very grateful for all of them!

We have had SO much fun with my family in town!! I can't believe the week is already over and they have to leave tomorrow. Sad. We had some "boy" fun this morning. Cabelas, Costa Vida, and Scheels. Then dropped the boys and kids off at home and had some "girl" fun. Target, Old Navy, and DownEast. 
These circus peanuts are for my sister-in-law Megan. We were laughing and teasing each other last night after the temple. She hates these treats and I thought of her when I saw them today. hahaha! :)




 Kolbi refused to get out of the cart. She's a sweetheart, just like her mom.

A little snuggle time with Grandpa watching a movie.

 Taylor's little brother went thru the temple for the first time tonight. It. Was. Awesome. It felt really odd, not complete without Maddie, but it really was great! All of us there in our white. Pretty incredible!! We just HAD to get some ice cream afterward, too. :)

We got tons of snow this morning! The boys went shooting, but forgot to take a picture. The one thing I asked for! haha :)

We skipped naps and headed to Scheels. Kolbi is exhausted. Poor girl!

All ready for the magical moment!



 Oh, the excitement!!







Up at the in-laws that night! We always get matching pj's. I didn't get a kid picture; shoot! This year us girls some matching Gap soft shell jackets. It even has the thumb holes, which I LOVE! The boys got some UnderArmor sweatshirts to go along with their basketball shorts. Wahoo!!




Look at how cute my computer is now! Taylor and I have the exact same computer. Exact. It's nice to have mine look unique now. I laughed out loud that I picked the same print for my pantry shelf liner. Taylor knows me so well! haha! You better believe that's an electric blanket too! I'm one happy "grandma"! :)

We woke up to snow!! Wahoo!






We had our big Christmas feast. Honey Baked Ham, homemade rolls, corn, twice baked potato casserole... Yum!

We took some cookies to a firehouse. It seemed like even a better idea with the shooting in New York this morning. 

After all of that fun stuff we had a little spiritual evening. Listening to the Forgotten Carols, reading Luke 2, and also my favorite Christmas picture book. What a great day!!

At church this morning. The choir sang "O Holy Night." It was AMAZING! That is my most favorite Christmas song and I had goosebumps the entire time. 

Taylor's friend, Marshall came by tonight to give him a gift. Wow!

We get a new family game and Christmas pj's every Christmas Adam. 

Last of all, we all slept around the tree. Best tradition!!

Look what I did today! I love it! I've been searching for something like this for a little while and almost jumped up and down when I found it in TJMaxx.

My Dad, brother, and sister-in-law got into town bright and early this morning!! I can not believe they are finally here! That Christmas is finally here!!! After a relaxing morning; they drove thru the night, we headed up to Temple Square to see the lights. I had the brilliant idea of taking the new train up there. The train on the way up there was INSANE! Bad, bad idea on my part. 


There was no where to sit for the entire ride so we took some pictures to make it more enjoyable. :)


 Temple Square was so super crowded, but beyond beautiful at the same time!


Waiting for the train ride back...

Oh man! There was SO many people waiting for this train. If we missed it, we'd have to wait 1.5 hours for the next one, so we gave ourselves plenty of time to get there. Natasha somehow squeezed herself up the line of the train and scored us this ENTIRE section. It had 4 seats in it. We were totally awesome and fit all 9 of us in there. It was quite comfy too! Tasha totally earned my high praise! This picture makes me smile!
