December was a fun and busy month. The first FHE of the month we decorated our Christmas Tree.
We put Jaxon to bed before we put the tree up because we knew it would be easier. I love Jaxon so much, but he would have made decorating the tree very hard. A few days later he decided to bang a couple shatterproof ornaments together, and he proved that shatterproof ornaments can shatter. Luckily they don't shatter into little pieces.
In order to get Christmas cards done I needed to take some updated pictures of the kids. I got a few good ones out of them.
Here is our Christmas card. Sadly I did not get them out to everyone. Maybe next year will be better.
Naomi had her dance recital this month. She did such a good job. We were very proud of her. I think she was most excited for the flowers she would get from us afterwards.
Here are a couple videos from her performance.
One weekend we went to the Temple Lights at the Mesa Temple. The kids loved it.
We went to a family Christmas party and Santa came.
Some of Cory's family came to town to celebrate Christmas. We had a lot of fun playing with cousins, making Gingerbread houses, and decorating ice cream cone Christmas trees and cookies.
Christmas we opened our Pajama presents and wrote Santa a letter. While the kids were nestled all snug in there bed Santa built some toys and loaded our stockings and left many presents under the tree. That morning the kids woke up and were so excited to see what Santa left.
Naomi loved everything she got. And Jaxon loved his truck so much that it was hard to get him to open any other present.
For lunch we went over to Cory's Dad's house. Naomi had fun playing with her cousins and her cousin's new puppy named Paws. Naomi kept saying she got a new puppy cousin.
That night we went to Cory's mom's house for dinner and to open more presents. Naomi and her cousin wanted to show off their new socks from grandma Sharon.
What a wonderful month we had spending time with family and remember our Savior.
