Holiday Summary

It's been about 5 months since I have blogged my family's happenings.  So here is a holiday summary!  Halloween fun at the church...
 A Ninja, a Vampire (this is the first year that "scary" was the pre-requisite for a costume), and a Tangled princess.
 Shawn White and his gold medal...
Trick or treating with the cousins...

Pumpkin seeds with Grandpa!
 We took the kids to the bike park on Thanksgiving was pretty cold but fun.  I have so much to be grateful for and these guys are absolutely at the top of my list!

Christmas break is never long enough!  We enjoyed the lack of a schedule and and fitting in some fun.  One day we took the kids "ice skating" at the mall with friends.

 Every year we go to our local library where the kids sit on Santa's lap, tell him what they want for Christmas, and he keeps asking "what else" (isn't that enough???) and he makes promises such as "I can do that..." (Gee...thanks Santa!)  The kids always leave happy and loaded up with a bag of candy and Mom leaves scrambling to search for last minute requests on Amazon!
Here are some cute kiddos dancing to Just Dance.  I love watching them get their groove on!  
I sent Rudolph to school in December.  Super cute!
 And here is part of our Christmas card, wishing our friends and family a "Silent Night."

 The cuties all ready for Christmas Sunday.

A nativity to remember!

 All the girls sang a very cute Christmas song.

I took the girls to the library for a Mom/Daughter date at an American Girl holiday tea party.  

Ezra's Christmas pre-school party.

Finally...Christmas morning has arrived!
 The kids are happy as clams!  And we are happy to spend all day relaxing with family.

In anticipation of Valentine's Day, we enjoyed leaving love notes for each other.  Here are a few:

 Bella and her cute Valentine's box for school.  Dalmation love dog.
 I got to go to Cali's little pre-school party....
 She has the BEST teacher ever...
 And spend some time with my best little man...
 And help out at Bella's Valentine's school party...BUSY DAY!

The bulk of the holidays are now over and I am looking forward more and more each day to feeling the sunshine of spring on my back and spending more time with the kids outdoors...  I love my family!
