Christmas Time

Christmas time was the best this year! Not to sound lame, but it was magical! We went to Heber City and rode the Polar Express. The kids were so excited to go to the North Pole. I will never forget there eyes when Santa joined us on the train. Pure innocence and excitement! We also went to the play Scrooge at the Washington Terrace playhouse. We had front row tickets which made the show even better. I was shocked at how much the kids enjoyed the play. I thought they would get antsy,but to my suprise they didn't. They sat completly still until ntermission. At intermission, the kids went on the stage and danced around like the actors. It was so cute! Harrison got into it the most. Maybe he will be an actor!
Christmas Eve was great. Tyler's parents and Jennie and Mike came over. We had an old fashioned Christmas Dinner. The kids hardly ate anything because they wanted to open presents, so after dinner they got to open gifts from Gramps/Grams,Jennie, and Mike. They were spoiled, but after each gift they said "thank you."
Christmas morning was memorable. Malone came into our room first. He came in to tell us that Santa left him a snowboard. The excitement in his eyes I will never forget. Boston was the second to wake up. I could hear him say, "Wow" when he saw all of the presents. Finally, Harrison woke up. He was so tired, but as soon as he saw all the presents he woke right up! Boston was so funny opening presents. He unwrapped them as fast as he could! Harrison on the other hand, wanted to show us each gift. He liked his clothes as much as the toys! Malone was so excited. When he got his IPOD he held it up and said it was the best day of his life! I knew Santa did well when he said that! Later that day we went to my Aunt Lana's for dinner. Lots of wonderful Mexican food!
The next day my parents and Aunt Kellie came over before we went to Las Vegas to give the kids more gifts! Again, they were spoiled! They loved everything that they received! My house looked like a toy store!
It was so nice to go to Las Vegas after Christmas. Usually, I'm really sad that Christmas is over, but this time I had something to look forward to. We had so much fun with the kids. Boston had another birtday party in Vegas at Peter Piper Pizza and then once again we exchanged Christmas Gifts with my brother! Again, they were spoiled but they appreciated what they got! I heard many thank you's when they were opening the gifts.
I will never forget this Christmas. All three boys could hear their bell Santa gave them ring! I hope they always will hear that bell!

Your kids are so sweet, mine could use a little gratitude lesson. My Dallin got an IPOD this year too. I'm glad your holiday went so well. By the way, your kids have little angel faces, they really are adorable!
