Christmas in Color

I've been promising the girls we would make it through the drive through Christmas lights, but we kept getting busier and busier. It's so rare for all 4 girls to be home long enough to go to the lights that it gets tricky. Then of course when we tried to go they were sold out and lines were an hour long. So we waited until after Christmas, which was the best thing we could've done. There were hardly any cars which meant we could take our time and enjoy all of it! The girls loved singing along with the music and seeing all the fun lights!

Sweet Dreams!

I love how this girl sleeps. She's a pretty crazy sleeper and ends up in lots of random positions. I especially loves when she is in a dance pose...I'm not sure if she was doing a stag leap or a posse, but I like to think she was flipping and twirling in her dreams!

Grandpa Brewer

My grandpa continues to struggle with his health, so I wanted to stop in for a visit. I played the piano for him and my grandma for about 45 min and chatted with them a little as well. I love my grandpa and the example he has always been to me.

Pendleton Christmas Party

I think this is the last Christmas party of the year! It's always so busy but so much fun! We got together with my mom's family for breakfast. It's always so good to mingle with my cousins and catch up. 

Grandpa Brewer

My grandpa has been in poor health for years. Every Christmas it seems like it will be his last, but then he keeps on going til the next Christmas when he says it again. I was able to find a couple hours to go over and visit him and my grandma. I played the piano for them and also chatted. It was nice to spend some time with them without the kids around.

Brewer Family Fun Day 2

We had another fun day with the Brewers. We started off with breakfast at my parent's house, then headed to Airborne to let the kids jump. The kids all had a great time! Ryon and Jana head home after Airborne and we split for the rest of the day.

Brewer Family Fun

Since my brother is in town my family planned a lot of family get togethers. Today we started out swimming, headed home for a few hrs to play with Christmas toys, headed to temple square (we didn't make it to that), then back to my parent's house for game night. We joined up for the game night and had a lot of fun!

Christmas

I love being reminded of the joy that kids have as they get excited and anticipate things like Christmas. They all slept in the girls' room last night for their annual sleepover. We are the worst parents and make them wait until 9:00 before they can come wake us up. Luckily they slept in too so they didn't have to wait very long. We enjoyed our time together all morning and the kids loved their gifts and what Santa brought them. After we relaxed for them morning we headed over to the Ericson's to enjoy lunch and the afternoon with them. As you can see from the pictures the kids loved everything that grandma and grandpa Ericson got them. For the evening we headed to my parent's house to spend the evening with my family. Once again...grandma and grandpa got them perfect presents. They all definitely got spoiled! We finally made it home after one of our more exhausting Christmases!

Pre-Christmas

Here are the pics before the kids were allowed downstairs. We made sure the kids knew we were going to take it easy this Christmas bc we are building our house and we just took them to Cancun as part of Christmas too. They all know they will be getting new bedrooms and fun stuff in the new house, so we didn't want to spend a lot for Christmas.

Christmas Eve

We always spend Christmas Eve with the Ericson's and we love the traditions that we have. We went to Michael and Natalie's this year for dinner. The kids all opened their new pjs then we watched the church's new Christmas nativity video. We rushed home to get ready for Santa and the kids headed to bed! (Britney hasn't had a favorite animal yet, so it made it hard to find hoodie pjs for her. I took a chance and got her llama pjs and even got her a stuffed llama in hopes that she would like the pjs more. She absolutely loved them!!! Llamas are now her favorite animal! She even had to have her picture taken in front of the llama picture!
