Christmas Fun!

Christmas seemed to come so fast this year! We started with the family party at Granny Thora's..
The little kids are so fun to watch with Santa! Granny's house was pretty crowded but somehow that made it even funner.

Santa found our house without any problem. We are quite blessed every year to be able to spoil our children. One of the best highlights of the season was being able to attend the program Savior of the World with our YM & YW. If any of you get a chance to attend, don't miss it!!

This program was the best way to begin the Holiday Season. I think it's great to take our youth to the temple every chance we get! They need to feel the spirit as often as possible!
The BEST GIFT EVER was the telephone call from Sorella Wilcox!! She called about 10:30 and was able to talk for forty min. I shared a few with the family but pretty much kept the phone in my hand! She sounded great and we both cried most of the time! She spent the day with an awesome family and really is happy. She spoke Italian to her Dad and he was very impressed. I will post pictures as soon as I get them. We all missed her this Christmas, but we are so proud of her. Thanks to all of you who remembered her and sent her cards!
The traditional Christmas Eve pj's! Kayla said she bought her some too! Grandma Dorothy gave chocolate and money! Oh and how can I forget to share a picture of my birthday present? King Crab Legs and Shrimp!! My hubby loves me!!

Ya! a new post! Is my life so boring that all I look forward to is checking my favorite blogs for new posts?? The answer is YES! Fun YW/YM activity--you never said anything about that... Still so jealous of the ginormous crab legs. I say it's time to go to Mesquite and have some! Love your straight hair in the crab picture. I'm thinking it makes you look younger!!
