Merry Christmas

We did something new this year, and that was to go to Maggiano's (the best italian food I've ever had) for Christmas eve. We had enought leftovers to last us the entire weekend and I didn't have to cook a thing. So yummy! The bishop and his family did have us over for Christmas dinner so we did have the traditional stuff but it was nice not to have to worry about all the bells and whistles. We also had a special surprise Christmas eve. It started snowing and Luke insisted in going out and playing in it even though it was dark. I couldn't say no to the kid seeing as it was Christmas eve.

The kids got to open up their Christmas eve present which was pajamas. I was worried they would be disappointed but they seemed content just to be able to rip something open.

I guess Luke and Bella were good kids this year because Santa hooked them up.

Christmas morning and our little snow bunny wanted to go play. We had a good 4inches. It was our first white Christmas that me James have had since we got married.

Luke conducting his new trian set.

For the past couple months Bella's favorite thing to do it color. After she finished opening her presents she went straight to this table. We have to hide our writing utesil because if anything is within her reach she will find it and color on any piece of paper she can get her hads on (including books, magazines, trash, and important documents).

I don't know why your blog hasn't been updating in mine regularly...

anyway...I wish Drew was like Bella and only colored on paper. You should see our walls...they are even worse than before...along with lamp shades, our water cooler, the kitchen floor, the carpet, the couch, the kitchen table, the fridge...he will basically color ANYWHERE! I just have to remember to smile!

can't wait to see you guys at the wedding!
