After we got Christmas set up the kids were thrilled to find that our dear friend "Icabod the Elf" had returned again. Every day Icabod was in a different spot, and so the first thing the kids did every morning was run down and find Icabod. Sometimes he has had to find, sometime a little easier and sometimes he brought the kids surprises. This has been such a fun thing for our family.
It was beautiful and FREEZING when we went to Temple Square. This is one of my favorite Christmas time traditions....the Temple is beautiful, the Nativity is wonderful, the Christus is Inspiring and the lights are breathe-taking!! What a wonderful night!!
Sitting on Santa's lap and the Train Ride
The kids were really excited to go and see Santa and sit on his lap...
well, everyone one was fine, till we actually tried to get Kolby to sit on Santa's lap...
The train ride, after sitting on Santa's lap is such a highlight. The kids seriously love it.
Gingerbread House Making
This year, Icabod our Elf, brought us a gingerbread house kit. The kids were really excited to put it together. What a fun tradition.
My mom did it again. She sent some beautiful Church outfits for the kids... Aren't they adorable?!?! The outfits are too!
