Christmas the entire month!

Christmas morning can sometimes feel like a let down...that was all it's over and done is less than an hour. So I've tried really hard this year and last to make Christmas last the entire month. We've done something every night together as a family. I probably should just post the entire list but here are a few of the things we've done.
*Put up the Christmas tree
*Read our favorite Christmas books
*Attend the kids school program
*Make treats for the neighbors
*Decorate a gingerbread house
*Church dinner
*Listen to favorite Christmas songs
*Lights at temple square
*Secret Santa
*Write letters to Santa
*Go to our friends Christmas party
*Watch our favorite Christmas movies
We still have a few more days til the big day and we are looking forward to the time we spend together each night and I think that's what I want my kids to remember most about the holidays.

Meggan's Big Day

Saturday was Meggan's Big Day. She became the newest member of the church in our family. She was baptized by her amazing dad. One of Meggan's best friends Megan was baptized as well. It was a great day and we had lots of family and friends come and support her. We are so proud of her for making this important choice and glad she is ours.
