It always seems to be the case that when you have the most to blog about you always have the least amount of time to blog. So as per tradition, you get a giant overview of our Christmas activities in one ginormous post. Grab a mug of hot chocolate. You're going to need it.
The week before Christmas we rode the train up to see the lights on Temple Square.
It was a cold night, but we came prepared with a Thermos full of hot chocolate.
Then the next day we went and made sugar cookies with the nieces and nephews/cousins. Alex spent most of the time shoving cookie dough and sprinkles in his face and then wearing this expression of illness. It was that night the puking began.
Ella's school did a Christmas program. When it was her class's turn to sing, the teachers so nicely propped this giant poster in front of her class so no one could see them. Oh well.
Alex went face first into the snow once, was run over by other sledders once, and went through a giant pine tree once. He still had fun.
Then it was Christmas day. The kids got everything they wanted, and then way too much more. It was a crazy day of fun with all the family.
