Merry Christmas

We headed down to Utah for Christmas this year.
Here is Allan with all the girls after Christmas Eve dinner.

Here are the girls in their new Christmas Jammies from Grandma Jean.
They were being cute and posing and so I had to put a few pictures.
Grandma Vicki bought them cute slippers.
On Christmas Morning there were lots of presents to be opened.
I love Lilly's Face in this one. For the last 2 years I have taken the girls to the dollar store and let them pick out presents for eachother. It's cheap and they get the experience of giving presents.
Allan thought I had too many rules for opening presents because we opened them one at a time and then the kids had to thank the giver and give them a hug before I would let another one be opened.
Today (the 26th) we went to the mall and Build-A-Bear to spend some Christmas $ and then the kids played at this playground while I grabbed a few after Christmas sale items.
Christmas day also leaves just one month till my due date January 25! So here I am nice and pregnant
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! At the end of this year I am feeling so blessed to have such a wonderful family and a new baby almost here. I am especially grateful for my testimony that I have a loving Heavenly Father who sent His Son Jesus Christ to be an example and make it so that I can live with my family forever. And also for the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ, The Book of Mormon, and for a living prophet, Thomas S. Monson, and for continuing revelation. We are all so grateful for wonderful friends and family who have supported us and shared another year with us. We didn't send out a Christmas card and update this year because I am waiting and will be sending out something once the baby is here, but we have enjoyed getting your cards and letters. We love you all and send best wishes for a wonderful 2010!

If you're staying in Utah for a few days you should bring your girls down to play with mine!

We'll be in town until the 31st, then we're heading to Logan for New Years.
