Christmas Day 2013

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care...
And Santa did come! The next moring the fudge was gone, the milk was gone, and there was one bite of carrot in the fireplace that must have been dropped. Boen found it and was way too excited!

The kids woke up about 7am which is a record for them. We called Grammy and Papa to come down. And Grandma and Grandpa. They all came to watch the wonder of Christmas morning! This year was just so special to me. My kids were at the funnest ages. 7 1/2, 5 1/2, and almost 3! It'll never be the same, but this year was perfect in my eyes!

We had to get some shots of them waiting patiently, which never happens!

Here is Bingham with his Disney Infinity that Santa brought him! He was stoked!

Boen asked for dragons, and well, Santa delivered! Bearded dragons that is! What a joyous surprise!

Paisli got Sofia the first doll, dress, book from Santa and went on to the big gift from mom and dad, her meow meow kitty. She loves that cat!

Paisli posing with Grandma and Grandpa and her new Sofia doll!

Here are the new outfits we bought the kids, down to the shoes and hats! Pretty darling, and yes the boys were pretty much matching!
I was spoiled I got a vintage looking stereo system, it plays records, cds, cassette tapes, mp3, and radio! Also some jewelry and a darling scarf!
I got Brody a belt, wallet, and briefcase all in the leather that he loves! oh and a sweatshirt! The kids got more than they'd ever need and I really tried to cut back this year. They were so sweet tho!
After Christmas morning, we went to Brunch and Debbie's. it was delish. The missionaries were there and did some entertaining for us and it was so nice! After that amazing brunch we went to my parents, Grammy and Papa's.

Grammy gave the girls all a homemade doll house they were sooooo amazing!

Paisli's is a ballet place with the dogs cats pigs etc. taking ballet, all made by hand! Papa was in heaven with all these kids (girls to snuggle).

Violet and Paisli playing side by side!

We went home and relaxed, after about and hr, Paisli started throwing up which lasted most the night and through the next day she was so sick. I joined her about midnight throwing down and up. Not fun when you're preggers! Mine lasted for about 3 days tho. I took this picture a few days after Christmas. She is sporting her new Sofia dress and jewelry!

Just so loverly!

Here is Boen showing off what Grammy and Papa gave him! spoiled!
This boy got sick for about 24hrs two days after Christmas.

And Bingham got an Infinity guy for his new Wii game! From Grammy and Papa
Bingham also got sick one day after Christmas. Not a fun time for us! Brody managed to stay healthy and care for us. 

The kids stayed in pjs for a few days while I stayed in bed and couldn't move, needless to say my house was the biggest disaster you have ever seen when I finally came down stairs! But look how much fun they had! The boys had built their new Lego boats that we got them!

Such a fun Christmas! Next year will be fun too with a new brother!!! Can't wait!

Christmas Eve 2013

Christmas Eve was pretty fun this year. We spent the morning at home and had Grammy Papa and GG over for brunch. There was a flu going around so we kept it simple! That evening we went to Dad's Aunt's house. Barbie and Scott Sessions. It was so fun! We ate some yummy food and the boys had a wrestling match. Then we came home and opened one present each. And of course, per tradition, jammies!

Boen sportin his new pjs and slippers!

Paisli in her "happy snowman" pjs as she calls them, from Frozen... and her bunny slippers!

Bing got the same cute pjs and Boen! I still can't resist dressing them alike! Sorry future Bing and Bo!

off to bed so Santa can come!

I forgot to post these cute kiddos in their Christmas Sunday best!

Call Party

We always have a Christmas Party with Grandma and Grandpa Great Call. We had it at the church this year and ate food, played games and Santa came! Here are my kids waiting for Santa to come in!

Santa wanted the kids to sing Jingle Bells.

Then the moment they were waiting for, telling Santa what they want. Paisli asked for a Sofia the First Princess dress and doll.

I think she thought it was in that little bag. haha

Bingham asking Santa for some Legos. I always feel so bad for him. He is so huge it looks like a 10yr old is up there begging for gifts. but no he is 7 and can ask all he wants. 

Such a cutie!

Boen decided he wanted to ask Santa for a dragon. Santa always has his work cut out for him!

Paisli saying thank you to Santa!

Boen and Bing following shortly behind to thank him as well.


This Christmas was the BEST yet! So magical and special. Perfect ages, 7 5 and 3!!!

The GG Party, formally known as the Grammy Party

Paisli trying to make Elsie sit still for a picture at the GG party. We started the night off right with enchiladas salsa beans and mexican food galore! Delish as usual.

Violet didn't want to look at me either!

The cute kiddos waiting for GG to start the singing!

Jeff Meg and Mr. Lincoln

Grammy/my mom with Elsie who still won't hold still!

Sammy and Erik all the way from Denver!!! haha and look at Heather's face in the background! goofball!

Boen holding Paisli so she would listen. and cute Finn who sat through the entire program. Such a sweety!

Huddy and Bing too grown up for this stuff. haha

We always sing Must be Santa, its the greatest!

Who wears a long cap on his head? Must be Santa, must be santa, must be santa, santa claus!

Aunt Lauri helping the kiddos up front while GG plays the piano!

GG's lesson. Short and sweet. She is holding up a picture of her son Bart that passed away at the age of four to Leukemia. So sad, but she is an amazing woman and example to all of us!

We ended the night with gifts from Grammy. She gave each family a book of Aesop's fables and a few other treasures! Always a great time!
