Happy Holidays everyone!! Last night we had our church Christmas party and it was so much fun. We don't have a picture of Rachel with Santa because she was freaking out... very scared. It was so funny how interested she was in him from far away, but there was no way that she was going to sit on his lap. Aliza was resistant to sitting on Santa's lap until she saw that candy was involved, and then she cheered right up :) Madeline was a little shy, but she told Santa she wants a Princess Computer for Christmas. I think if she got anything princess she would be totally happy. Amaya was just happy and staring at Santa's beard. The holiday's are getting more and more fun as our kids are getting older.
It's been very cold here the last week. Probably the coldest it's been since we've lived here. Usually the snow melts the same day it falls, but we've had the same snow for almost a week. I kind of like it...I think I'd like it more if we had a garage. It's fun having snow. It helps me get in the Christmas Spirit.
It's better late than never right? :) My parents and two of my sisters, Carly and Kaylie came up for Thanksgiving. It was really nice having family here. To be honest I wasn't really feeling like making a huge meal, so I'm glad my mom was here to help. Jared and my Dad played turkey bowl in the morning while we watched the Thanksgiving Day Parade and prepared the big dinner.
Jared stayed at home with the girls in the early morning of the day after Thanksgiving so I could go out shopping with my family. I remember going every year when I was growing up, so it was fun to continue the tradition.
I love my family very much. I'm so thankful to be blessed with a good parents who raised me with much love. I am grateful to have a loving husband and children. They fill my life with JOY. Happy Holidays!
