A yearly tradition. . . Each year since we’ve been married, we have had our picture taken by the Christmas tree (this was our 9th!) It’s fun to look back and see how we’ve changed (or aged-- yikes). With each year that passes, it only gets better!

This Christmas we spent a few days at Suzanne's parent's house. It was great to have the whole family together. For us, Christmas is all about family. It just wouldn't be the same without them. We love Christmas, and what it means. Most importantly, we celebrate the birth of our Savior. Then we mix in a whole lot of fun with family, yummy food, gifts, service, laughter, and togetherness! The Sunday after Christmas, we all went to church, and then came home to snap a quick family picture.

My sister, brother, and I. Much love to them!

"Santa Clause is Coming to Town."

There's a story behind this one. The Santa Clause on Brent's lap is a motion activated Santa that moves his mouth as he sings: "HO HO HO, Merry Christmas! You better watch out, you better not cry. . ." You know, the song, "Santa Clause is Coming to Town." Each year my mom gets this Santa out, and since my sister's triplets first Christmas they have been deathly afraid of it for some reason. This year, two of them got brave, and decided he was a nice Santa. However, N, still wanted nothing to do with him. Notice the shirt over his head! Brent was trying to talk him into not being afraid, obviously to no avail!

He finally decided Santa wasn't that bad, but still wasn't happy about him being so close.
