Ryan and Emme both performed at the BYU Ballroom Winter show--such a wonderful show! They both did a great job!
Cute Elf with even Cuter kids at City Creek!
Every year, the kids do a gingerbread house. This was a kit that I found at Costco which was so easy to assemble and all the kids could participate in decorating it!
We went out to the Riverwoods with the Morrill family to go to dinner, see the lights, go on a carriage ride and see Santa.

Christopher Pop-in-Kins joined our Christmas activities this year. During the day, he kept an eye on everyone to make sure they were behaving and at night, he flew around and then hid in a new location! It was quite exciting to find him every morning!
Most excited on her birthday to have an I-Phone
Said she didn't want the same old birthday cake--she wanted a lemon poppy seed bundt cake this year! Definitely unique for a birthday, but it was yummy!
We made a mad dash to board the new Frontrunner for our annual trip to see the lights on Temple Square. We jumped on and the doors closed! :) Chase thought the ride up was great! Much more fun then sitting in a carseat in our car!
We hosted another Christmas Dinner Party with friends: Craig & Katie Pritchard, Taylor & Anndee Nadauld, Matt & Emily Magleby, Chris & Kathryn Morrill and Todd & Jennifer Chiniquy
Emme made Ninja this kitty pillow for Christmas so she would be warm in the garage...but because our Winter was so cold, she became an indoor cat and enjoys the pillow in the family room now! (Record cold--has not been this cold since 1964! Brrrr!)
Megan and Emme loving the Nutcracker

Robb and I came home from a date and Emme had turned our kitchen into a snowflake/paper chain haven!

The Holman family got on the frontrunner at the exact same time, so Emme had Abbie to hang out with!
