A visit to Roosevelt!

We couldn't stand to not see Nicoley, Bry and kids over Christmas so now that mom and dad had made it ... we took a drive out to Roosevelt for the day! We had a little baby shower for Presley too :) Sis made a great dinner and we had a great time again with the family! Luckily the roads stayed clear too! Thanks Sis for letting us come! We can't wait to meet Presley!!!

Merry, Merry Christmas!!!

This year Christmas morning {luckily} wasn't too early ... me and Tone were up wrapping presents until 2:00 in the morning and it's good the kids were able to sleep in a little! Baylee woke up and was so excited! We were all so spoiled and it was so great to be together as a family! Boston got a train set, Baylee got a Nintendo DS (she could hardly stand it she was so excited!) Anthon got a new punching bag and speed bag set and I got some awesome handmade shelfs from Tone and some diamond earrings. Spoiled is an understatement! We feel so blessed for all we have! My mom and dad came over and spent most of the afternoon with us and we got a visit from Joe, Jenn and the kids too! We waited ever so paitently for Tone's mom and dad and Jesse to get here safely from Washington too! The roads were so terrible and it took twice as long as it should've but at 5 minutes after midnight ... they made it! We were up pretty late to continue our celebrating with them! Our Christmas got to be spread out a couple days and we had our big Christmas dinner with them and enjoyed every minute!

Our Christmas Dinner ...

Christmas Eve at Grandma D's

Our family has a tradition to spend Christmas Eve at Grandma Dunford's and dress up, have a nice dinner, and each family performs some talents :) Baylee worked really hard at learning "Where are you Christmas?" by Cindy Loo Hoo and Boston would say "Ho, Ho, Ho" ... when they got in front of the family the stage fright set in and it didn't exactly happen. They did act out in the Nativity though ... Boston was a shepherd and Baylee was supposed to join Aspyn and Charly as an angel but decided she wanted to be a shepherd like Bos. They were so cute and we had a great night! Santa brought a few gifts before we left so we hurried home to get to bed so we didn't miss him ... Baylee was so excited and it is so magical this year! Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night :)

Once there was a snowman!

Another downpour of snow and the kids were itching to get out the door! Tone helped Bay and Bos create a snowman friend and gave them quite a fun ride in the sled! Such a fun daddy! We love the snow and are so excited for this Christmas week with Tone home!

Neil & Maddy Visit!

We got to have {visitors} for the night! It was so fun to see Uncle Neil and Maddy! Bay went to the Polar Express that night [I'll post pics soon!] and we went to dinner at Braza Grill ... yum! Bos really liked Uncle Neil and was on his lap and in his arms the whole time! Bay was by Maddy's side like glue too! Thanks for the visit! Love you guys!

Our {favorite} new CD!

Last Saturday my mom and dad took us couple kids to the Voice Male Christmas concert and it was soooo fun! Anthon even liked it :) They did a whole bunch of kids songs from their new album {Kid Stuff} and it was so great that I went and got it yesterday for Baylee and Boston ... they so love it and I can't stop singing the songs! They get way stuck in your head but they are soooo cute! You can check it out on their website ... it's worth the $16 we paid at Deseret Book :)

Sledding at Happy Hollow :)

So we {finally} got some snow! Yay! Baylee was SOOOOO excited to go sledding. We ran over to Happy Hollow for a couple hours :) It didn't last too long due to cold hands ... I just went to the store to get 'real' mittens that aren't just yarn so they get wet in 2 seconds ... next sledding experience should be better! But, we had fun! (Actually the pic at the top left of the collage was right before Tone crashed with both kids! They were headed in a hole when I took the pic and I put my camera down and saw both kids explode from the sled ... they all laughed though so no harm done ... Bos got his first whitewash with a little mud too!)

a little Christmas preview

Tonight we went with April and Dustin and kids to take some pictures for our Christmas cards! The kids were pretty cooperative considering how dang cold it was! We have red noses in most of the pics but they turned out pretty dang cute I think! Here's a couple of my favs ...
