Christmastime in Utah

What's Christmastime without taking a trip to downtown SLC to see the beautiful lights of Temple Square? We joined my brother and sister and dad and Linda. We lucked out and went on a warmer night, but it was still packed with people. I'm always in awe of the lights and spirit when visiting Temple Square. The kids all behaved well for such a special place. Emma's favorite word for all animals is "puppy" so the donkeys in the nativity scenes were "puppy"s. Afterwards we headed to Gateway for some yummy food.

We took the kids to see Santa last week at South Towne Mall. They have the best Santa and set-up. It was a long wait but they made it to the big guy. Stephen wasn't sure what to say to him and Emma would not have anything to do with the man in red. I guess I'll be writing apology letters to Santa to make sure Stephen and Emma get presents on Christmas morning.
Children make Christmas that much more special. Merry Christmas to my little ones!

So Random

Here is a look at the random going-ons that have happened the last few months. Typical Utah weather, beautiful fall day one day then snow a few days later. Stephen was so excited to get out in the snow and play even though there was only an inch on the ground. I was just glad to have raked all the leaves before the snow fell. As of now, there hasn't been any new snow, but just wait 15 minutes and the weather will change.

Emma is getting to be such a "big girl" that she wants to do what her big brother does also, like homework, eating cereal but still is the little girl getting into toyboxes and just being silly.
