December 2017

Charlie is so dang fun! He hated this
Santa hat though! haha

Spotted this OLD pic
of Trey with kitty.
LOVE it! These
two are best friends in
this house.

Jay's work Christmas Party
We look forward each year to this. It's always
really nice! 

Jayme and Jay at lunch

Lunch with Kim and Laurel.
Afterward they came to see my work.

Santa came to my work to take pics with
the court families! He always give me a big squeeze
each year! haha
My nieces came to see Santa.

Treats galore in our house this month! yum!

A work district training. My office was in
charge of the activity...turning our supervisors
into SNOWMEN! haha

The Graf's got together to go see Star Wars at the theatre!
Here's a cousin-pic that night after the movie.

Siblings and their families are so much fun!

Making breakfast with Trey one morning.
He had been asking for sausages for breakfast for
months, and I kept forgetting to just buy them...until
one day!  This breakfast was his favorite moment that
month! hahaha

Just treats around the house all month in December, so fun!

Getting ready for a family party
wearing ugly sweaters!
He's so cute!!

At Mike and Barbara's house for the Christmas party

The cousins playing games

Time for Pixie !

Another weekend we had a fun Christmas party
at Kyle and Carrie's house!
We don't get to see Jay's side of the
family as much, and so
we were so excited about this get-together

Kristen with her boys

Carrie had a great idea to take a picture from
the ground, haha, it was really cool!

We had such a nice visit with everyone

Carrie made this cool fox picture out of fall leaves

This is a gift that Annie
and Adam gave us,
I love it so much!

The cousins had a blast playing games down stairs

Maelie was so cute 
with Carrie's new puppy

Sweet Emery !

My friend made this for me for
Christmas, I love it!

The Graf cousins have a Christmas Eve tradition
of going to Primary Children's hospital to sing carols
and hand out Christmas gifts to patients.
This is some of this-years-group!

There's the full group of singers for this year!

We had a Christmas Eve party at our home with
Kim's family. It's been tradition for us  to
spend Christmas Eve together ever
since we lived in their home with them.
We kind of feel like one family still.
Such a sweet blessing for us.

And Kolby shows up each
year as Santa! haha

And Charlie joined him in the suit this year!

Time for Santa to give gifts out...


Calling for Pixie!

Enjoying the gifts.
Jay cracks me up in this picture! ha

Christmas morning came and we relaxed alllll day...
it was pure Heaven!! Feel so blessed to be with my
family, they are my everything.

On Christmas day, I got this text from a friend, she
was watching an old Mormon Tabernacle Christmas show
and saw Jay, me, and Jayme there in the audience!
She texted me a picture of it! Trey was actually there
too, sitting next to Jay. That was the year the muppets
were with the Mormon Tab. Such a fun concert!
So funny to get her text with this, haha!

One of Jay's favorite Christmas gifts! 

It's tradition to eat Christmas dinner each year
over with Kim and Shaun's family. It's Prime Rib
each year, and it melts in your mouth. The meal
is over the top. And sometimes we even eat with their Gold
utensils. It's pretty fancy!

Jayme and her friend, Parker, went to see the
lights at Temple square one weekend in December,
these pics were so cute of them!

The last weekend in December, my presidency
was busy with the stake ym presidency and stake youth council
decorating for the multi-stake New Years Eve dance!
It was Epic!!! 

My secretary put this announcement together,
I love her creativity!

After we got done shopping and decorating the gym,
we decided to take pics at the photo booth!

Jay has always been an
amazing support in helping
me with anything in my
callings, no matter what
I need him to do.
This night he sat and collected
dance-cards from the 400 youth
that came to the dance! 
There's Jay with some of
the stake young men's

What a fun night! We even had a count-down balloon drop!

We now get to get ready for planning to be helping
with the stake valentines dance! And after that, planning
continues for stake Trek. Busy, but amazing to be a part
of such neat things with our youth in this area.
