Life in December 2010

Daniel turned 7 in December! He was very excited to receive this journal from his Primary Teacher Sister Deans.

Since his birthday fell on a Sunday this year, we were able to celebrate it at Mimi & Papa's house after church.

Blowing out his candles.

Daniel got to bring in birthday treats to his class at school. Here he is with Mrs. Peterson his English teacher.

Lizzy was enjoying painting some pictures, as well as her face, nails and body!

We took the kids to Temple Square in Salt Lake City to see the colorful Christmas lights.

It was actually a great evening to go, because it had been raining that day so there weren't many people there seeing the lights. Luckily, the rain stopped just when we got there! Perfect timing...

Rachel really enjoys getting her picture taken and here she is saying 'cheese!'

On Christmas Eve we invited Dave's family over this year to celebrate. Lizzy was enjoying some laughs with Uncle Brad.

The girls loved spending time with Uncle BRad

Christmas morning. Santa brought Daniel a new bike, Nathan a tub of Legos and the girls their own dolls.

Papa came over early Christmas morning to watch the kids open their gifts. It was fun to share the excitement with him!

Dave & Daniel

Dave's big gift to Ashley was that he watched the kids for four days while she went on a girl's trip with her friend Emily to San Francisco.

It was such a fun trip. LOTS of shopping, eating out, sleeping in, relaxing. Ashley & Emily were just in Paradise.

While in San Francisco Ashley & Emily met with a color/style consultant who told them what colors to wear, what styles to pick out, hair color suggestions... so they spent the rest of the trip shopping for new clothes to follow his advice.

On New Year's Day we got together at Ashley's parents house and went sledding.
