This was our second "Holiday Season" away from family, and it was surprisingly lots of fun.
For Halloween our ward of course had a trunk or treat, and then Halloween night my sister Marie had a bunch of families over before trick-or-treating. Thank goodness our girls are cute, clearly neither Brandon or I were concerned about our appearances that night. P.S. trick or treating lasted less than 30 minutes for our family- it was freezing!
|Grace loves to "play the piano", but especially loved to play and sing Christmas carols. It was very entertaining.|
|Meanwhile, Ivy's favorite activity was finding sneeky ways to get her destructive hands on the Christmas ornaments. How can anyone get mad that face!|
|We made lots of treats this season. Clearly the presentation of these was not the goal; it is just super fun baking with Grace. She is one of the few people I know whose sweet tooth is bigger than mine!|
|I learned to love the snow. If it is going to below freezing outside at least let the land look pretty and be fun to play in.|
|I can squish and smother those cheeks all day!|
|I don't know why we even buy toys.|
|It's so nice to be able to go to my sister's house and play!|
|Grace LOVES the snow.|
|More treats. First time making gingerbread cookies~ fun and yummy!|
|Santa finally arrived!|
|Out of all the toys Grace received, her cheap "Strawberry Shortcake Polish" was her most favorite. I think we spoil our kids for no reason, they are just happy with the little things.|
