Christmas fun

Writing letters to Santa is taken pretty seriously over here. This year was no different. We had a family home evening dedicated to writing the big man. Rebekah was very specific as she told Dad what to write. Jace and Hyrum were thrilled when we finally got our first batch of real snow. They bundled up after school and went out to get started on this years snow forts. Grace went out for a bit to help but would not keep her gloves on. After a few handfuls of icy snow with her bare hands she decided to stay inside with mama. Every Friday we have Friday night movie night. The month of December was filled with all our favorite Christmas movies. We had a Grinch night with "Grinch juice" and green "Grinch popcorn". The kids picked a name out of a bowl of who to buy a gift for this year. They loved planning and picking out gifts. Here they are with the gifts they wrapped for each other.
