We had such a fun Christmas this year. We spent the few days before making gingerbread houses...
and tree ornaments.
The kiddos on Christmas Sunday. Actually, it may have been the Sunday before. I can't remember. Anyway, they're cute. :)
We had many visits with Santa this year. This is number one. We went to the Lighting of the Park and Santa was there!
Number two. Santa gave us a personal house visit this year. How lucky are we??!! Well, Bekah's less than thrilled.
Aaron thought it was pretty cool.
Kaylee was dressed up for the occasion. :)
Unless we travel home to Boise, Christmas Eve Eve finds us at the Villa's annual Christmas party. Always a good time. Lots of friends, food, music, and laughter.
The shirt says it all. :)
I don't know what sort of magical powers these hispanic women have, but they can ALWAYS get Bekah to sleep in their arms. Unfortunately, Shawn and I are not blessed with those powers. :( On the up side, it's probably because we make them sleep in their crib. :)
Making the rounds delivering Christmas goodies. The kids loved it!
This was the first year we acted out the nativity scene as a family. We loved it and the Spirit it brought to the home on Christmas Eve.
Santa number 3 was the ward Christmas party. Was really fun with a nice musical program and good food.
And finally, Santa visit number 4, again to our home AND on Christmas morning! He even brought along an elf!
As you can see, we were in the middle of getting ready for church during this Santa visit, so baby girl's hair leaves a little to be desired... It's all good though - just keepin' it real. :)
I've been having a hard time uploading my videos to blogger, so I've started posting them on youtube. Here are a couple of links for Christmas videos:

Yay for Christmas! I love that time of year, and am always a little sad when it's all over. But then there's New Years, and I love that too. Then we start all over again!
