Monday before Christmas-
We had a great day full of LOTS of snow, and later that night had two of my piano students over to my house for a little recital with their mom and dad. We all had a really fun time and the kids did great! :) (The little girl switched her song on me and had me play the duet with her, without ever practicing before... sheesh! :) It's so great to see how much kids can learn.
Tuesday- CHRISTMAS ADAM!!
To all those who don't know- We celebrate Christmas Adam around here. (The day before Christmas Eve... Adam came before Eve... Get it?) Since we do so much traveling, Santa thankfully obliged to come one night early just for us so we can have a morning home with our presents. That day, we went over to our great friends' house- the Blodgetts... and had a little Christmas party with them. Dallin had a great time out in all of the snow... don't mind the pink outfit... he borrowed from a house full of girls... :)
note to self...
We woke up and found that Santa had came! But Dallin was still sleeping... so we waited... and waited... and waited... and finally at 10:30- we decided that we would wake him up! He wasn't very happy with us, and he took a minute to get fully woken up (as you can see in this video). I felt so bad though. I think he thought that Santa was going to BE there when he woke up. :( The rest of the day he kept telling everybody that he "ate his cupcake all gone" but that "Santa was lost! He was not there!" I guess I should have explained that one a little better... Here's some pictures of some of his presents.... Once he really woke up, he really loved them!
We woke up and had another morning full of presents. It was really fun. Dallin opened up one of his bigger presents- a Little Einsteins Rocket with all of the people (For those who don't know- it's from a show on Playhouse Disney). He LOVES this show. Jeff and I were really excited to give it to him.
At about 2:00- we headed down to St. George to My great grandma's house and had a wonderful time over there. We got a lot of gift certificates for some fun dates (We LOVE that!)
Friday- Day after Christmas-
I went out to lunch with my sister Kellie and my friend Marci and her little boy Kaylin. Pasta Factory! :) I seriously am so in love with their breadsticks and alfredo... there's no other place like it! I wish I had a Pasta Factory in my house! Or at least a lifetime suply of their alfredo... We did a little shopping and I finally bought an outfit for our little girl. Dallin picked out one too, which I thought was really cute. We played Scene it with my family for a little while and then that night, Jeff and Dallin unfortuneately found themselves a little under the weather. Not fun at all!
Jeff and Dallin felt a little better, but not quite themselves still. We headed over to Kellie and Garrett's house and made a Christmas Dinner for my Dad and his wife Dana. They flew in that afternoon (my dad has his piolet's license) and we had a fun little afternoon with them. I might add- just to make my brother mad... that my dad WASTED him in Madden.
MY LAST DAY IN NURSERY! :) Oh happy day! I can finally go to Relief Society again!
A Beautiful day!! Jeff and our friend Bruce took Dallin and his oldest daughter Eva sledding. Jeff didn't even wear a jacket most of the time because it was so nice outside. The kids had a blast... and the guys almost died a few times... :) Luckily I wasn't there the whole time to witness the crazy stuff...
Ok... Well... So that was a REALLY REALLY long post... but this really is like my journal so I needed to do it. We really had a great week, and this week has been just as fun... (But more relaxing thank goodness!) Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!!
