CHRISTMAS eve EVE!
On the night before Christmas Eve my family came up to our house. We ate dinner and then drove to Willard to see the lights at "Fantasy at the Bay". We were excited to see that Santa was there, because we hadn't gotten around to taking the boys to see him. Well, after waiting in the cold for a few minutes we went inside the tent to see "ho ho" (as Ethan often calls him). The whole time we were talking to Ethan outside he kept saying that he was going to sit on Santa's lap and that he was excited. We get inside and he immediately goes shy and starts freaking out. He wouldn't sit on his lap or even look at him. So, Logan starts crying and getting upset also. Well, this picture is the best we could do; with Chris and my Dad sitting on his lap. I hope Santa's knees didn't hurt too bad after wards. I hope that next year Ethan will do better. Does everyone else have problems with their kids and Santa?
On the night before Christmas we had a fun party with Chris' family. We ate Navajo Tacos (my favorite) in candle light (well, we tried, but Logan freaked out when they turned the lights out). We also played the the candy bar game and opened pajamas. I love getting new pajamas!
Christmas morning we woke up a little before seven and talked to my brother Dane on the phone for a little over an hour. It was great getting to talk to him. He has an accent, which is funny, and him and his companion sang Silent Night in Spanish. It was awesome. After that we opened up our big present, a Hard drive camcorder, so we could record the boys opening their presents.
After getting ready we headed up to Smithfield to hang out with my family. It was starting to snow, but we made it there before it got too horrible. When we got there we opened more presents (thanks everyone!) and then we played games. It was a lot of fun and I am looking forward to New Years and having more fun!
