Christmas

This year we spent Christmas with my family! We went up to Silver Mountain for a few days right after we got to Washington and stayed at a resort where we skied, went sledding, and swam in the 80 degree indoor water park! Then we went back to my parents house and had our Christmas Eve party where we did the nativity, opened our pajamas, and watched the Nativity Story. Christmas we got up and opened presents then waited around to talk to my brother Riley on his mission. It was so nice to talk to him he has grown so much and is such a wonderful example for our family! The next week was full of family gatherings involving food and way too late of nights! We had a lot of fun it was so nice to spend time with family that we hardly get to see! Grace got way off schedule as kids always do on vacation and we cut her some bangs! It was a good trip but were glad to be back home in the warmer weather!




















i made this advent with some friends we patterned it after the pottery barn one!

Both of your bangs are cute! I made that advent calendar too, it's on my blog. How did you get yours to stick to the wall? I made a loop for a hook but when I moved it to my front door since it was wider i used velcro stickers that didn't hold it up the whole month...

It looks like you guys had an amazing holiday. Skiing looks so fun. I haven't been in years. Grace is so funny how she was wearing her princess dress on Christmas. Jaylee did the same thing. And your advent calendar is soo cute! I want to make one. Where did you get the numbers? Did you make all those little pockets by hand?
