Christmas EVE

I wanted to start a tradition on Christmas Eve to have a nice Turkey/Ham dinner with whoever in the family wants to come join us. I love to cook nice dinners, decorate the table really nice, and use my china a couple times a year. Brian, Suzi, and their kids joined us this year. We ate a yummy dinner, the kids made snowmen out of marshmellows, had some friends come Christmas caroling at our house, and then we drove around to look at Christmas lights. I love celebrating Holidays with family, so glad I have Mark's side of the family so close to us!

Notice Marlise in the background texting, that girl can't go five seconds without texting. What is this world coming to?!?!

Temple Lights For All To See

Every Year we go see the Temple lights with our family here. It make's us realize why we really celebrate Christmas and to not take the birth of Jesus for granted. After we enjoy looking at the lights, we go over to Bosa Donuts for a yummy treat, and some visiting time with family. We look forward to this tradition every year, thanks to all the helping hands to make it possible (My brother in law and nephews to name just a few).

Every year with Mark's family, the kids act out the Nativity. It's a really nice tradition we have to get us in the spirit of Christmas. Marlise always wants to play the Angel, Cameron and David usually like to be a wise man or shephards. This year Cameron was Joseph, he did awesome with Mary. David was a Shephard, what a cutie! I look forward to this every year at Christmas time, it wouldn't be Christmas without!!

I love this picture of Marlise, this is her to the T!!

As everyone knows, I'm a BIG Twilight fan! So when New Moon was coming out, got an email about renting a theater with a group of Ladies to see New Moon of course I'm IN!! I got four tickets, one for me, my friend Carol, and our two daughters, Marlise and Kaitlyn. My preparation to go see the movie was to read New Moon again, I did in days. I even started Eclipse and read that too{I know I'm crazy}!! It couldn't get here fast enough, then it was finally Nov. 20Th!! Off we went to the Movie wearing our Team Edward shirts I made, and lots of candy in hand to enjoy during the movie. I loved every minute of it, and I'm proud to say, I'm still Team Edward!! The next week I went up to Utah for Thanksgiving, and we went and saw it again, even better the second time. Can't wait to own it on DVD so I can watch it over and over again, my poor husband!
