It's Tradition!

I look forward to our traditional Christmas Eve picture before bed in our Christmas jammies in front of the tree. Here they are! I better get off the computer now so Santa can come!!

Merry Christmas Eve Eve!!!

We snapped a few pictures after church today. I'm so grateful for my little family that makes me so happy!! We are so blessed and I'm practically bursting with joy this Christmas season as I reflect on all that is good and right and happy in my life!

Just my cutest boys enjoying some hot cocoa on this chilly Christmas Eve Eve night!

Family Campout

It has been almost a year since we camped as a family. The last time was slightly nightmarish with a nursing baby that didn't sleep through the night yet. This time... MUCH better!! We enjoyed chilly weather, a nice warm fire, campfire food, and a decent night's sleep! There may be more in our future!
Check out this girls excitement!

 Tired, swollen, sleepy morning faces!

Round 2

About the same.

Meeting Santa

We had our ward Christmas Party Friday night. The kids were able to meet Santa. Ivy, I promise, was super excited about it until the very second I put her on his lap. Then, she wailed so hard she flashed her tonsils for goodness sake!! And the very second I took her off and handed her a candy cane, she was fine. Girls. Jackson, on the other hand, was as pleased as could be!!

The Star of the Show

Jackson had his preschool Christmas program Thursday night and it was the cutest thing I've ever seen in my entire life. First of all, he was so handsome. And he sang every word to every song, loud and clear. I was a proud mama!!

Something to post...

In case anyone was wondering - this boy dresses himself. I wonder what his preschool teachers think. Here is one of my favs.
It's always a fun time at Bass Pro in December!

Rolling it all up...

Into one post.
Time is getting away from me. My to do list is long. Blogging has taken a back seat to a degree. So I'm throwing a lot of pictures into this post and putting it all together. 

Here we are spending a lot of our time at Wild Florida. Now that the weather is so nice, it's hard to resist a nice day in the animal park. You know... catching lizards, feeding the goats and kissing the alligators. 

 Disneyworld. We try and go about once a week. It really is so fun for the me and the kids. We just come and go as we please, ride whatever we want to ride and just enjoy our days!

 We had to hit up the airport to retrieve Uncle Jeff's bag the other day and this buddy was such a good helper. He insisted I take a picture of him with this airplane and I obliged.  
 One of the moms snapped this picture of my babes hugging at Jackson's Thanksgiving Feast. Love it. 
This little sassafras. She surely is a spitfire and has the cutest personality. We had a little run in with hand-foot-and-mouth. That was no fun. But it didn't seem to slow her down at all! Also, my kids have had their first taste of Eggnog... they love it. 

Daniel treated me to a one night get away in Daytona Beach. It was so fun! I first enjoyed a 2 hour full body massage/scrub/mud facial (amazing!) Then we enjoyed dinner, a movie, dessert and a full nights sleep. I even took a super long shower in the morning, just because I could! It was so divine. 
We ate at Red Robin... a real treat. And were updated periodically via pictures of our rug rats at home (with PJ and Lauren, thank you!) here, they were loving on Sandy.

 And, it's a little ridiculous how many pictures I have of the kids while they are sleeping. It's just too hard for me to resist snapping a picture of their perfectly cute, peaceful, want-to-smooch-all-over-them, adorable faces!
