It's Christmas!!

We had a really wonderful Christmas this year!

We woke up Christmas morning and the girls were very excited to see that Santa had come!

They opened all their presents, and we had a special Christmas breakfast.

We went to church after presents, and Jason had to go to work :( the Christmas program at church was terrific, and afterwards, we headed over to my mom's house for MORE PRESENTS!

We had a really terrific prime rib dinner, and Jason was able to come over from work to eat with us.  Merry Christmas!

Nutcracker Fun!

At the dance studio where Lizzy and Rachel take ballet, they did a little holiday Nutcracker show!  The girls had a lot of fun, and the dances were so cute!

The funny thing about this picture - my mom's name is Susan, and her fiancee is John!

Ward Christmas Party

This year at our ward Christmas party, my family came and shared in the fun!

Here's grandpa ready to eat dinner!

My sister, Angela, and I played a violin and viola duet together!

Lizzy was so cute singing with the primary - she thought it was too loud!  The leader told them to sing loud so Santa could hear them, and then Santa came out!  Lizzy told Santa what she wanted for Christmas, but Rachel was too scared to do it.  Later, Rachel was upset that Santa wouldn't know what she wanted, since she hadn't asked him for anything, so we wrote him a letter and sent it to the North Pole!
