Oh Christmastime, Oh Christmastime

We enjoyed another wonderful Christmas season in Arizona.  All the fun and none of the cold.  Yes, please!  The kids loved doing the countdown chain every day and we had plenty of activities to keep us in the Christmas spirit.

The kids had fun making and delivering treats to our new neighbors who all said, "Thanks!  Wait-who are you?"

The lights at the Mesa Temple are always a hit.  We didn't lose each other once!

Update: Jeff is still very handsome.

Update: Harrison still has one sweatshirt.

We all enjoyed Christmas morning in our Star Wars pajamas.  Santa brought Harrison "Star Wars Battlefront" for the Xbox and Jeff got all of the Star Wars movies, so that's what we did all week.

Santa brought Jeff a suit! Now he can drink Nespresso with George Clooney and Danny Devito.  But not really.  He's Mormon.

Santa brought Chloe this adorable Instax Mini 8 in raspberry.  The learning curve on this thing is steep and expensive, but I think we've figured it out.

Santa brought Miles a watch and a jacket that zips up over your face.  Now he can commit the perfect crime.

We had a little fun with the wrapping this year.

Harrison knows Miles so well.  This came with gloves, of course.  

Everyone knows Chloe well.  She's finished half of these already.

Jeff's parents gave us Rock Band and so far the tour is going well.  I think we play Milwaukee next.

Santa was kind enough to bring me a new camera and I'm so grateful.  It's already made a huge difference in my photos.  December was a busy month for my photography business, so that added a new dimension to the season.  It was so fun to get Christmas cards from some of my clients and see my work in print!

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

I had the same pleasure of getting Christmas cards and realizing you had taken the pictures. Christmas morning in Star Wars pj's is my new dream. Can't wait to play Rockband!
