So the first - these are the Christmas plates the kids and I made...sadly I didn't take any pictures of the kids cooking, it was a bit stressful making that many treats in one day and so pictures were forgotten.
In Preston's family it's a tradition to go to The Old Spaghetti Factory right before Christmas...so we headed off and had a really nice time on Saturday. I never understood why Spaghetti was a Christmas tradition before but after being with Preston's family for so many Christmas's it really feels "Christmasy"(is that a word?) I think we will keep it going every year.
On Christmas Eve we had the Elders and Lindsey and her boyfriend over for dinner. It was fun to have more people here for the day. My memories of Christmas are of lots of people being crowded in one house, so it was lot of fun to have them here. That night we exchanged presents with my sister and Matt and you will not believe what she got me...are you ready for this?
A RED KITCHENAID MIXER. I am so excited to bake all kinds of creations with it. Lindsey is such a great sister and she's so generous and I am so glad we got to spend the holidays with her this year.( and I am not just saying that because of the mixer.)
Christmas was a blast. Ethan and Tyler are at such a fun age this year. Ethan kept saying," This is the greatest day of my life." They loved every second of it.
Ethan trying out his new easel.
Tyler loves his new car track he was saying,"Vroom, Crash," in this picture.
Ethan was so happy to get a new "CandyLand" game becasue Tyler went the Bathroom in his last one!
