WOW was December crazy and exhausting, but tons and tons of fun!
One of the first activities we did was make gingerbread houses with my mom and my sister Tia. I think they turned out pretty cute for our first time ever making them all on our own. We also spent 4 or 5 days of jam packed fun in Salt Lake City visiting my sister in law where we decorated sugar cookies and had a snow ball fight with cousins.Then on Friday Shawn and I met up with my family and went to temple square to look at the beautiful lights,and have dinner at "The Roof" restaurant. The next day we were able to attend my cousin Jonathan's wedding at the Mt. Timpanogas Temple.
We got back home from Salt Lake just in time to get ready for Santa. Christmas Eve we spent doing the traditional Anderson events which are; Mexican dinner, followed by the Nativity Play acted out by the littlest of Anderson's, and then the grand finale of the evening opening up pajamas and posing for pictures. This year my mom came up with the idea of having each sibling and their family sporting pajamas that represented their favorite team or college. Since us Tobler's aren't big sports fans we represented the Big Dogs from Virgin Valley. Christmas morning our kids woke us up at 6:00 on the dot. Who knows how long they had been awake but they new they couldn't wake us up before 6. Santa definantly found our house and the kidos were very spoiled. This Christmas was really nice at our house because we were able to have Shawn home as he has had to work on Christmas for the last 3 years. We were also lucky enough to have him home for New Year which we spent with our good friends the Frei's. We go over to their house every year and have dinner and good conversation while the kids play all night.
We have had a wonderful year and have been greatly blessed. We are surrounded by amazing family and wonderful friends. The kids are all healthy and growing way to fast sometimes I find my self looking at Kylee and wondering who's kid she is because their is no way I have a child that old. Time sure does fly by and I am anxiously waiting to see what the year 2010 brings.
The girls look cute in their Christmas dresses that mom my bought for them.
