Bryn Bateman Headbands

 cousin, Bryn, makes these adorable little headbands for adults and kids that also function as ear warmers. I, of course, had to get some and we love them!!! The girls were so excited to wear them, and I think Avery even fell asleep last night wearing hers. And then the first thing she asked for this morning was her "hebab".

Cute Girls!!

Here are just a few cute pictures of the girls in some of their new Christmas clothes! Avery is loving the "pretty skirts" these days. Once I put them on I can't get them off...she is so funny.


Avery had some pretty crazy hair on Christmas morning but didn't want to slow down long enough to get it fixed!

Walkie Talkies from Grammy and Papa

Finally...That stinking purse she has been wanting - along with the cell phone. Thanks again Grammy and Papa!

The 2 wheeled scooter from Grandma and Grandpa Sanders
The girls...and all their STUFF!!

Sorry for the delay in getting the Christmas pictures posted. We had a great Christmas!!! Santa was definitely good to us this year. We stayed home for Christmas which is kind of bitter sweet. It's nice not having to travel and figure out the present situation, but then it's really hard not being with your family either.
We did get to spend Christmas Eve with Steph, Fran and Wyatt. We went to eat and then watched the Christmas story on DVD. The kids then opened their pajamas from Grammy and Papa. Fran tried to get a few pictures of the kids but they (I mean Wyatt) were pretty wound up!!
Christmas morning was really exciting for the girls. They were both really into Christmas and the whole idea of Santa this year. They got some really fun toys that they are anxious to use if this snow will ever go away!
Later in the day we went down to Steph and Fran's house and then went over to Grandma and Grandpa Johnson's for dinner.
We definitely missed family that we didn't see on Christmas and want you to know how much we love you all.

Christmas Sunday

We tried to get a few pictures of the girls before we hurried off to church today. Avery wasn't too cooperative. She was too worried about her "pretty skirt" to sit still for a few pictures. This was the best we could do.
Merry Christmas!!

The first snowfall

Today we had our ward Christmas Party with Santa. When we came home we actually had snow on the ground. The girls were so anxious to play in it...they thought it was fun helping Dave shovel the driveway. He then helped them build a snowman.

Avery knocked the first head off so they had to build another one.

Then, for fun, Dave lit a lost firework (left over from the 4th of July) off the head of the snowman. The kids loved it!!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Elina, Baylee and Avery

Wyatt, Elina, Baylee, Avery
Owen and Tyler

Since my parents and Emily and Owen were in town we decided to take a family trip down to temple square to look at the lights. The weather has been great this year so we were actually able to enjoy our time walking around. We go see the lights every year but it was nice to go early before all of the holiday events begin.
