What a month!

Well, December flew by!  We had such fun this month.  Here are some pictures...

 The kids wrote their letters for Santa!  Then put them in the tree, so Santa or his elves could come get them while the kids slept.

 This is us at our Ward Christmas party.  They had a cupcake buffet.  Of course the kids LOVED that!
 ...and the ham and rolls.
 I think Dallin had one to many cupcakes. Ha!

 I loved this one of the snowman melting.
 No party is complete without Santa, right?  Elsa loved to sit on his lap.
 Abby did too, but she looked like this the whole time sitting there.  It reminded me of "A Christmas Story" where Ralphie gets all nervous and forgets why he's there. 
 Not even a treat bags got her to smile. 
 This is what we all looked like just about every night while watching Christmas movies.
So comfy, huh?!
 Here is our living room at night.
 One night we had hot cocoa and colored wooden ornaments. 
 You never get too old for that huh?!
 They all had fun!

 This year Santa sent an elf to our home.  She would go to the North Pole to report to Santa of the kids behavior, then come back and sometimes she would get into quite a bit of mischief.  The kids cousins, (Hannah's kids)  got a boy elf and Laurel would call us just about every day and tell us what they caught their elf doing, then we'd tell her what we caught our elf doing. It was fun and she got a kick out of everything that our elves did.
 This night she was looking at the baby Jesus with the rest of the toys.
 The weekend before Christmas we went to Salt Lake for Clint's company party.  While we were there we stopped and visited Grandma and Grandpa Anderson.  It was nice to talk to them.  They are so cute!
 We also went to Temple Square and played in the hands-on museum.  They had a Book of Mormon theme.  It finally dawned on me that they probably change it every year to go with the primary's theme for the year. (Last year it was "I am a Child of God."

 The girls were preparing some food for the missionaries somewhere in South America.
 The girls were trying to throw the tortillas in the bucket.

 Abby was dancing like the spanish women dance.
I'll post more pictures tomorrow!

Wow looks like so much interactive museum and Abby looks like a natural.
I miss G-ma and G-pa! I miss you!
Loved the elf pictures...I should have taken pictures of our Elfie. Oh well, there's always next year! Thanks for making it so magical for Laurel.
