We had our ward Christmas party last night, and look who showed up!! Peyton and Lainey were excited all week that they were going to see Santa. They knew exactly what they were going to ask for.
At the last minute, Lainey decided that she didn't like Santa, and wouldn't sit on his lap. Peyton was so concerned that he wouldn't know what she wanted, that he waited in line again to talk to Santa, so that he could tell him what Lainey wanted.
What a cute big brother - watching out for his little sister!!

They also decorated cookies (Granny B's!!!)- that was a big hit. All the kids liked that. Lainey just licked the frosting and sprinkles off of hers.

Decorating the Tree

Time to decorate the tree. My kids really love to do this. They pretty much decorate the tree by themselves. It really makes for a fun day, and a fun tradition.

Posing in front of their masterpiece!

Christmas Lights

On Sunday we went to visit Scott at the hospital. He got moved to a different room, so my kids were able to see him this time. He had surgery on Saturday, and it went well. Now he has to just recover. After we left the hospital a bunch of us went to see the lights at Temple Square.

Here is Peyton and Lainey. You can't tell from the pictures,
but this tree was the most beautiful one on all the grounds.

Peyton was so funny, he kept wanting to pose for pictures. This one he is laying on the sidewalk (don't ask me!!)

Peyton is posing again for a picture, I wish I would have
had a better camera, these pictures would have turned out awesome!

Well, I guess that this one turned out alright. My kids just kept
asking if we could go in the temple
