We had such a fun Christmas and Christmas Eve. We spent Christmas Eve morning with Tyler's Grandpa Larry and Grandma Diane and her granddaughter (and her granddaughter's husband and puppy. Guess what my kids' favorite part was? Yeah, the eggs. NOOOO, the puppy, silly!). We also went up to SLC to visit some friends. Then, we headed to my brother's house in Orem. It is so nice having my brother and his family close. The kids LOVED playing with their cousins and we loved eating such yummy food. Thanks again, Deon (since I know you're the one who cranked out such fabulous treats!).We had our traditional Christmas Vigil before bed. A tradition in Tyler's family, we read the story of Christ's birth and sing all the Christmas Carols that we can (that fit in with the Christmas story--we had to explain several times to Sheridan that "Frosty the Snowman" and "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" don't really fit in with the story of Christ's birth!) And then, Santa Claus visited us. No, really, he came down to the kids rooms and they got to SEE him! Whoa. He gave them each a candy cane and a stuffed puppy and they were SO EXCITED I can't believe that they actually slept.
Well, we did have lots of fun the whole month of December. Decorating the tree, building candy houses, family dinners, and a visit to Santa!
Jack loved Santa. Henry was not impressed. Sheridan refused to even approach him unless I held on to her. She still managed to let him know in no uncertain terms that she was expecting a high chair for her Yellow Bear. Jack spouted off a long list. Henry...well, he mostly cried.
