Family: The Best Gift of All!

Each year, my favorite part of Christmas is having our family together. I'm so thankful that everyone came out and we had some time where we were all together. Here are some cute pictures I took that I thought I'd share. :)

Temple Lights

Sib gift exchange

Christmas Eve- Nativity and Lanterns

Cute Shepherd (or Wise Man?)

Christmas Morning

I love this one!

Cute Baby!

So I got mom's email tonight about Shaver Lake and it's good that we have to decide on that by Monday since we have to decide on beach camping by then too. I mapquested Shaver from here and it was 10 hrs. I don't like that part about it, but if that's what people want to do, we'll be up for it. It looks like the same time  frame we were thinking for beach camping (It's July 27th-Aug 2). Mom, do you know how much that costs? 

Alright. Lets figure this out :)

What? A new post on the family blog?

Ok so it's that time of year again :) Time to at least start thinking about Christmas and maybe what the people on your Christmas list might want. So Emma and Jane helped me draw names tonight after Sunday dinner. Here. You. Go. You're Welcome.

Dan -> Carrie
Amy -> Sally
Dana -> Jeff
Katie -> Randa
Eter -> Amy
Sally -> Dana
Jeff -> Katie
Carrie -> Eter
Miranda -> Dan

I'm sorry if any of you have the same person you have every year- it was a fair draw...maybe you need to really get them the right gift this year before you can move onto someone else.

Kid exchange:

Tay -> Emma
Jane -> Eli
Emma -> Dallin
Eli -> Jane
Dallin -> James
Holly -> Campbell
Sadie -> Tatum
James -> Holly

For the kid exchange we talked about homemade gifts. Thoughts on that Sal? Obviously you'll have to give James a little help with that. :)

Let Them Eat Cake!

Happy First Birthday to James! You might want to take a seat for THE MAIN EVENT in one-year-old cake eating. You will not be disappointed. (Except maybe by the idle chatter by myself and friends--feel free to ignore that part.)

Luckily, he actually consumed a lot less than he destroyed. When I gathered up all the cake he was sitting on, it was almost the same size as the original cake. Unlike Tatum on her first birthday, James did not get sick. He did wake up a few hours after going to bed that night but went right back down--sugar high, perhaps?

Wish you all could've been here, or that we'd gotten our junk together enough to have done this at the beach. Love you all!
