Christmas 2009

Christmas just keeps getting better and better with each passing year. First off, the holidays are so much fun with kids. And as the kids are getting older they are beginning to understand the true meaning of's fun to give gifts to each other but remembering the gift of our Savior is the most important. I think one of the best parts for London and Sutton was going to the store to help pick out a present for the families helping families program. On Christmas morning, London exclaims "Mom & Dad, the little boy got his gift today and I think he is so happy." It was nice to see that she wasn't so wrapped up in her own Christmas morning gifts that she forgot about others. We also watched the Nativity story which they always love and we talked about Jesus' birth and why we give each other gifts at Christmas.

Taite's favorite part of Christmas is attacking the tree. She loved the beads and the lights!

For London it was a special Christmas with her first American Girl Doll...Kit!
