Tis the Season

Oh, where to start? We have been very busy the past few weeks doing fun Christmas activities.
Earlier in the month we took the kids to Ethel M, which is a chocolate factory/cactus garden. They decorate the outside with tons of lights which Devin loved. And everyone gets a free sample of chocolate which I loved!
 Hannah and Devin made their own gingerbread men and house.
 I took the kids to the Bass Pro shops to see Santa. They have free crafts every Saturday and a bunch of fun games the kids can play. The kids have actually seen Santa three time already this year and this was attempt number 1. Maybe I am a terrible mother but the crying pictures with Santa totally make me laugh.

 Our ward party was last Saturday. It was a Polar express theme--We had breakfast at the church then the kids performed a song they learned in primary.
 Jared's family had so many traditions at Christmas. One thing they always did was go down to Seattle to ride the carousel. We have done it every year since we were married.

And because we live in the desert we took the kids to Town Square--where they make fake snow. Devin really liked it and was even trying to make snow angels.

I like the first santa pic. Addy is screaming, but Devin is stoic. It's great!
