Christmas 2011

Christmas was so much fun this year. Brooks loved every minute of it, and Taylor and Grace were the most excited about it that I have seen yet. I loved watching my three kids open their presents on Christmas morning and see the joy in their eyes.

 Trying to take pictures before Christmas Eve church service.
We all took a nap, got up at 8:00 and went to the 10 o'clock candle light communion service at our church. It was beautiful.

 Yep, that's as good as it gets. Did I mention he is active!


 So excited that Santa brought him the Lego Brickmania tank that he wanted.

 Grace got her American Girl doll - Kanani

 Christmas with MeMa and PaPa

Christmas Programs

Taylor's class at school did a PTO program for Christmas and Grace was in the church play for Christmas. I absolutely love Christmas time! Both did a great job!

 Taylor loves to sing, but movements and dancing - NO WAY!

 Except for here! Only time he actually did something other than sing!

 "Hurry, hurry to Bethlehem! A savior is born in a stall!"

Brooks First Birthday Party

I love to plan birthday parties!!! And I was so excited to plan Brooks' 1st birthday party! I found the idea not long after he was born when I was looking for an idea for Taylor's birthday and started saving ideas then. I never want Brooks to feel like he doesn't have a birthday since it is only 10 days before Christmas. I came across the idea of doing "Winter ONEderland" and absolutely loved it. I searced for tons of ideas and loved how it turned out.

 Loved his smash cake!

 Cake pops - so good!
