Our Christmas

Only one hour flight home. 

And we have this. 

We spent Christmas with my parents, The Hills, Zac and his girlfriend Rachelle.

Sweet baby Sam turned one.

SOOOOO darling.

Lots and Lots of cards. Wayne claimed the liverpool rummy trophie. Once.

He talked about it a lot.

So much good food.

 Our neighbors famous display.

Cousin playtime.

Time with daddy.

And snow.

Christmas Lights in Boise

It was the coldest night we'd had all winter and we somehow forgot Collin's coat. He stayed warm and toasty in mine. I pretended I was warm.
I literally almost froze my butt off. Really, it was barely hanging on.

It was still a lot of fun though.

Pretty Christmas Girl.

Christmas Eve

Our Christmas Eve at my parents home always includes a program of singing Christmas hymns as we read the Christmas story, lighting a nativity of candles. 

Wayne, Molly, Sam, Zac and Rachelle were there too. I just wasn't great with my photo taking this year. 

Collin knew all the songs except for "Far Far Away On Judea's Plains".
Notice the music is upside down.

By the end of the program, the only candle still lit is the one representing Christ. 
Lydia likes to be the "snuffer".

Collin sang all of "Hark the Herald Angels Sing".
That was my favorite Christmas moment this year.
It made me cry. My mom too.

I was thinking tonight about how thankful I am for the minutes I have every night with my sleepy babies.
Lydia snuck into Collin's room just then and snapped a photo. :)

Our Halloween

My parents came down for Halloween this year. 
This was why we moved back West :) Everything is more fun with grandparents.

My mom dressed up as a crazy redhead.

I have no idea how to take a non blurry photo in the dark.

Quite the hall!

Papa took all the peanut stuff home with him.
