Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! 

We had a lovely day!  Tallie started off the day with a Diet Coke!  I seriously don't feed my kids Diet Coke, but they always seem to find it at my parents house!

Lance was so excited about his presents this year, it was so fun! 

Yes Tallie got coal... ok, it's chocolate, Santa wasn't that mean!

Tallie is obsessed with her "pee-bear" and now loves Pooh's buddy Piglet too!

Best part of my day:  Lance opened up this gun, which literally cost me $2.50 and started jumping up and down and said "YES, I got what I wanted!!!!!!" 

I gave Spence the August Rush DVD which I found at Walmart for $2.  When we lived in Arizona, one weekend my parents came to visit and we rented this movie.  Spencer and my dad literally watched it and then restarted it and watched it again.  I was so annoyed cause they probably watched it 3x in 24 hours!  I thought he would get a laugh out of it, and he did! 

All Tallie wanted from Santa was her "Punzel" doll.  The look on her face when she opened it was priceless.  She was so happy, and she absolutely loves it!

I loved having Christmas on Sunday.  It was so nice to go to church and really focus on the Savior and the true meaning of Christmas.  I wish we could go to church every Christmas.  It was awesome, I loved it! 

After church, we headed to my grandma's for a fun afternoon! 

Some of the cousins. 

My grandma made the little grand kids the coolest gift.  This little church bag that fits a coloring book and then the crayons fit in little pockets on the front, so great.  Tallie loved it! 

Tallie and Ruby are a couple months apart, I wish we lived closer to them, so they could play!  They did a pretty good job sharing the job of helping grandma open the present! 

My grandma with her grandkids that live in Utah.  We missed Ashley and Amber and their kiddos! 

Family pic with my grandma who I just love and adore so much!  And who - by the way - makes the most delicious cherry pie in the entire world! 

I am so grateful for my family and for the wonderful Christmas we had.  And most importantly for our Savior Jesus Christ, and that we could celebrate his birth, life, and sacrifice for us.

Love the Christmas photos. I missed not being in Utah for the holidays. And completely agree that Grandma makes the best cherry pie EVER.
