|This is our tree at work. It was a cute little thing |
and it was fun to have it up during the month. It was a
service tree. We picked little cards off of it and bought
presents for the child that was listed. These were kids in
need in the community.
|My work does a great party each year|
for Christmas time too. This is our probation officer in
my office, who plays "Santa" each year.
He is the real-deal too!
|He asked me what I wanted for Christmas,|
I told him I wanted my mortgage paid off!
|Ok...seriously...we live in the BEST neighborhood!|
They do cool personalized things like this.
Santa drives down our street on a fire truck one
specific Saturday morning ...he comes around our
street like a couple of times...and throws candy out on
our front lawns if he sees a child looking out the window!
Pretty cool tradition! We love it each year!
|Yummy hot chocolate that we had for the Foxwood ward|
Relief Society sisters for our Christmas dinner/program.
|This month also brought Jayme's fist semester of COLLEGE!|
I spent a lot of time with her getting her all set up!
She wouldn't let me take pics of her..dang girl!
|They also had a cool Christmas tree at UVU College|
|Here is our Ward Christmas Party!|
|The decorations were so pretty|
|He looked like a zombie at the doctor!|
|cute zombie though !|
|Jayme wrapped all her gifts she had bought for us all...|
and we decided that we were going to be spoiled !
|Date night !|
Jay took me to HuHot, this was such a fun place.
I want to go back soon!
|Soooo...this snowblower is 2 years old...but brand new!...|
it's only been used like twice...maybe...maybe only
once actually. BUT...it is broken. So, this is the second year
thatJay has pulled it out to try and fix it...to no avail ...yet.
|This cute Clock we got as a gift from Mike & Barbara|
this year for our family for Christmas, we love it!
It plays a different Christmas song each hour.
|...and this is how I kept my feet warm at work all winter, lol !!|
|Snow each day out my work window|
|The judge gave us clerks all bracelets|
for Christmas gifts. She gave us each a
different one that she picked out individually for us.
|cute picture of Jayme this winter|
|Our family got together for a fun Christmas eve lunch at|
Red Robbin up in Layton and a movie together!
We decided to make this a yearly tradition!
|Christmas Eve, Jay took our family out to dinner|
at the Olive Garden. It was so awesome to be together
with each other and the kids and just having fun
with our family. After dinner we went over to
Kim & Shaun's house for pixie and treat!
|Jayme had us laughing as she|
took our picture :)
|Jay, getting in one last wish request from "Santa"|
|Shaun made "grinch" cookies..these were the best!|
|Calling for "Pixie" to come!|
|caught a quick peek from Pixie & Trixie|
|Trey showing the gift he|
got from Pixie
|The kids got Pixie pajamas|
|These cute girls !|
|Back at home after the Pixie party and the kids went to bed,|
|.... and we are ready for Christmas morning !|
|These are some of my favorite|
decorations of Jeannettes that we
have in our home now.
|Christmas morning, kitty loved the wrapping paper|
|The kids were very happy Christmas morning!!|
|Kitty loved my electric blanket that I |
got for Christmas
|Face-timing with Grandma & Grandpa Graf !|
They were so fun as they were learning how to face-time! haha
|Trey's "too cool to smile" teenage pose!...|
but I got him to smile for me still :)
|We got plenty of a white Christmas & our|
snowblower is still out of commission...so Jay
got his exercise in Christmas morning to say the least!
|Kim's family came over to visit us on Christmas day|
|Jay made Jeannette's recipe of "Special K" treats|
|I made a yummy breakfast caserole|
|Jay made our traditional meatballs and hotdogs|
|We went again this year to have Christmas dinner at|
Kim & Shaun's house! We love this memory with their family!
|The fam !|
|Macy fell asleep in her|
tent, too cute!
|The day after Christmas, we met up with family and|
visited Jeannette's grave. Then we went over to
visit Grandpa Wood. We had such good visits together!
