Family Pictures

On Saturday my Dad was nice enough to take our family pictures. He did an awesome job and I have so many favorites. And of course we couldn't have family pictures without Eleanor...she is a part of the family after all....


Fun Times

Chad had the whole week of Christmas off which was so nice. My parents gave us some money for Christmas and we found an awesome fire pit for our backyard! We were so excited we decided to have a camping experience at home!


We cooked hot dogs over the fire and made smores of course!


Easton enjoyed it and loved the fire. He got mad when I wouldn't let him get down so he could touch it.


We set up the tent for the girls to sleep in that night which they thought was so cool.


While the girls were brushing their teeth Easton found a new toy to suck on...






He looked hilarious with crazy monster teeth. It is actually Lydia's brush for her pony but Easton thinks it is a great teether.

Merry Christmas

Both of the girls woke up Christmas morning and completely forgot it was Christmas. Lydia even walked past all of the gifts to the bathroom and didn't even notice. We were kind of disappointed in the kids reaction to their Santa gifts. Probably because their was no reaction at all haha. And yes it was exactly what they asked for. I on the other hand was totally excited at the present sitting out from Chad's parents!


My very own pink bike! I was so excited I almost forgot to help Easton with his Santa gift some fun building blocks....


Sophie got an Ariel barbie...


And Lydia got the Magi clip Princesses...




When we started opening gifts Easton thought it was more fun to crawl on top of them and eat the paper and ribbons...


The girls on the other hand knew what to do and they loved opening everything!


 Lydia fell in love with her purple scarf from Kamrie!




Sophie got a fun magic set from Landon and even tricked herself...she thought she was a real magician haha.

Easton got a fun driving toy from Zurie which was definitely his favorite Christmas gift...



The girls  got a fun pop up tent and ball pit which turned out to be a winner with Easton also...






And chad got an awesome BSU sign from Dawnese...


and some new toys for the garage thanks Mom and Dad!



Easton even got excited about the new tools and had to check them out...


The girls got new Razor scooters thanks to a killer black Friday sale!!



We brought them to my parents house and the girls got to play on them with all their cousins and their scooters too! Their street is the perfect hill to ride down and the kids had a blast riding scooters and long boards down together. 

Merry Christmas!



Christmas Eve

For Christmas Eve we headed to my parents house and enjoyed delicious food. We has a fancy dinner on our china. One of our favorite Christmas traditions. After dinner I read the kids Twas the Night Before Christmas and a special visitor knocked on the door and left gifts!




The girls got some really cute charm bracelets and the boys...







Got some pretty awesome harmonicas! My Grandpa Buchanan plays the harmonica and used to play High on the Mountain Top as a lullaby.  It was pretty noisy in the house for awhile. Easton was so funny he kept staring at Rowley wondering why his wasn't making any noise. 



Then we got ready for our nativity play. Easton was quite the active little sheep. The moment we put it on him he was crawling all over the place and didn't stop until we took it off. I think he liked it...


Chad played a cow and executed the part perfectly....


Brad jumped in as the donkey last minute and did a great job with Mary and Joseph...



And Joseph, the shepherds, and wise men were awesome...


All of the angels did an excellent job also....





Sadly I forgot to get a picture of Sophie and Lydia in their angel costumes. Lydia decided last minute that she didn't want to be in the play.

After we enjoyed some yummy cheesecake and the kids got into their jammies all ready for Christmas morning!
