Christmastime Part 1

Are you still with me? Are you so sick of seeing everyone else's Christmas updates? Well, I'm not. So here you go.

We'll start with Christmas Village at downtown Ogden. We went a few weeks before Christmas with Charlie and Dara and their girls; it was the first time we took Abby too. It's Christmas decoration-y, with Santa and hot chocolate and Christmas carolers dressed in period clothing. We didn't see any carolers that night, but all the rest was there. It is put up every year, where local businesses put together little houses depicting Christmas scenes.  It's fun and free!

Tiny, far away picture.

We went to Arizona for a week, where we spent lots of time with my family!

Early morning picture. Sorry, Mom, but you certainly didn't object to me taking the picture. I like Abby's scrunchy happy smile, that actually makes her look like she's trying to poop.

Mom and Keena.

Pale, tan, pale.

There was a lot of this going on. Abby latched on to her aunts and uncle and had SO much fun playing with them. She spent most of the time trying to get Hannah to chase her. Seriously, my parenting totally plummeted this week, because she was always playing with someone and I was so preoccupied with visiting with my family.

Stupid bridesmaid-y shot. We're dorks.

Keena doesn't mind being goofing around for Abby's amusement. This resulted in yoga, handstands, and rolling on the giant yoga ball to get a laugh. She loves it!

Hours of present wrapping. Mostly by Keena, who played Santa for most of the family.

Ab watching Keena.

This lucky girl got graham crackers in her stocking! She loves "gracs" and they made this post because most of our trip was spent foraging through the cupboard looking for them, or requesting them off of any adult nearby.

More to come... if you are interested!
