Our Gingerbread house
The La Jolla Christmas parade
Not a fan of Santa...this year
A Christmas shopping accident at Target.
I love that, at this age, almost all hurts can be solved with a Slurpee.
Caroling with friends from church at the local retirement home
We are so grateful to the Willoughbys for the invitation to join them for a weekend of skiing and snow fun in Park City! We feel so very blessed to have friends like the Willoughbys and Mischlers and the opportunity to enjoy these family vacations together!
Our sleigh ride got off to a rocky start, but everyone enjoyed it...except Harrison. Fuzzy photo, but the only one of our whole crew! What special people. What fantastic friends.
Park City Snow School - Kaden was eager to get on the mountain!
Ski Class with Willa and Brookie
On our own on the slopes - watch out skiers!
So proud of this little guy and his excitement about learning a new activity. He paid attention to his teachers, tried his very best, and got up when he fell down. By the end of the weekend, he was riding up the ski lift with us and skiing down the mountain (and by mountain, I mean bunny slope) all by himself. He is anxious to ski again! I love his sense of adventure and his enthusiasm for life! He is pure joy!
Harrison loved Cal-Cal's backpack
Bundled up brothers
Our beautiful, sweet, silly littles!
Oh, that face! It melts the coldest of times!
Trouble with a Capital T ... but you can't help but love this little rascal!
Fun at the Montage in Deer Valley - a walk in the life size gingerbread house and bowling!
Kaden's favorite part of the trip - "eating snow!"
Harrison wasn't feeling the family photo session and Kaden was too busy catching snowflakes...this is the best we could do.
The sledding was fantastic this year!
Sweet friendships for the littles and the bigs!
When we returned from Park City, Gammi and Pop were ready and waiting to get the Christmas holiday started!
Tom and Jerry caused an almost excessive case of the giggles - for both Kaden and Pop!
Tide pooling with Gammi on one of our amazing winter days!
Harrison's favorite activity - walking MarBear
Christmas Eve church service - don't they clean up nicely? Always a fantastic evening of song and celebration - the perfect way to remember the reason for the season.
Followed by yet another lovely Christmas Eve with the Willoughbys.
The excitement of Christmas morning is magical when celebrating with children who believe!
A big boy bike...maybe too big? It took him a few minutes and a few more tries, but he got the hang of it pretty quickly! I can't remember the number of laps we did around Busy Bee, I lost count at 482!
These two little chunks of love were inseparable...due to Harrison's obsession with sweet Marley.
A fun night for watching college football at the Poinsettia Bowl thanks to Daddy and his Red Coat!
