We had a great Christmas!!! It was alot of fun to see Kate so excited for Christmas. This was the first year she really understood Santa and presents. Let me tell you about our Christmas events.
On the Sunday before Christmas we went up to Grandma Stephens house and made ginger bread houses. Aunt Cally made Kates for her. I made one for Tagg but its not even close to as good as Cally's. Kate had a lot of fun putting on the frosting. Tagg just had fun eating the candies.

Then on Christmas eve Kellen came over and decorated cookies with Kate. They had fun putting on TONZ of frosting...not to mention licking the knifes after every time they put frosting on. (Thanks to Grandma S. Kate would not take off that Lion outfit.)

Then while Kate and Kellen were frosting cookies a special visitor came. Santa!!!! He came to tell the kids hello and to go to bed so that he can come bring them presents. The kids were so excited they were jumping up and down. Tagg and KaraLyn liked sitting on Santa's lap.

On Christmas morning Mama and Papa Leetham came over to our house and watched the kids open presents and Papa made his yummy hot chocolate. The kids had alot of fun. Kate got a new bike and a sled and Tagg got fun trucks and balls. Then we went up to Grandma and Grandpa Stephens house and opened more presents. Then we went down to Aunt Lauras house where we opened even more presents. Then we finally made it to Mama and Papa Leethams house to open the final presents of the night. All I can say is that we had a great Christmas!!

Jake relaxing. He looks really tired.

Tibble Fork

Today we decided to go to Tibble Fork for a fun family outing. It was way cold but so beautiful!! The ice kept making weird noises and was making me really nervous. We weren't out on the ice but I did not like those sounds. Kate loved running around and throwing rocks on the ice. Tagg was just happy to be outside. Kate of course did not want to wear her coat and Tagg did not even want to even get close to wearing his hat!! We had a lot of fun!!

Kate and Tagg sitting on a rock by the water.

Jake walking out a little bit on the ice. Isn't he hot!

These pics are of the ice crystals on top of the water they were really beautiful.

Me and Jake enjoying one of our favorite places.

Happy Birthday Tagger Mans!!!!

Our baby is one!!!! I can't believe that time has gone by so fast!!! I love you little man!!
Taggs football cake. He loves balls so i decided on a sports cake.

He did not know what to think at first......but enjoyed it when he finally got the hang of it.
Enjoying the cake!! He loved every min of it.

Don't bug me I am still eating.

Opening the presents!!

Enjoying the presents. He loved every single one of his presents. I am going to say the baseball stand that I gave him is the one he likes the best!!! Only because I gave it to him.

Kate and Harvey enjoying the presents also.
