The lights at Temple Square

Doesn't this tree look amazing! Wow, that is a lot of lights!






We went to the Church History Museum for the first time and discovered they had a childrens museum too. The kids loved dressing up and reenacting the nativity. Taylor spent like 20 minutes making a luminarie. We had a hard time convincing them to leave!

Sledding and Gingerbread Fun

Over the past few days we have gotten dumped on...so our neighbor across the street made this awesome sledding run in the movie....

Taylor and her friend having a blast going down the hill

For family home evening we made a gingerbread house. The girls loved it, especially eating the frosting!





Beckett didn't get in on the gingerbread fun but he was having a great time playing with his Dad.

On Sunday we finally tried out our wood burning stove. It actually heated the home up quickly!

November Fun!

My handsome boys!

I love this pic of Callie!


My parents came to our home for Thanksgiving again this year and we had a great time, packing in lots of activities into the time we got to spend with them. My mom bought the girls some Christmas crafts that they loved working on together.


We went to the festival of lights in Spanish Fork (actually only about a hop, skip and a jump from our front yard!)


Deer in our backyard.

We went to a 10,000 acre tree farm in Alpine and cut down our Christmas tree this year. It was really fun and the especially enjoyed riding the 4 wheeler. Here is the one we picked.




Loading up to go find the tree....


In our matching Christmas jammies that Brandon's mom made us last year.
