Christmas 2009

What a wonderful Christmas we had... We enjoyed the early morning with three excited kids. (except I truly believe I was more excited... I kept waking up all night and could not sleep... ) We went to my moms for a bit and then made it home by noon to fix a Christmas dinner. Korey's parents drove up to enjoy dinner with us. The afternoon/evening some friends and family stopped by to visit. Enjoy some of our pictures of our morning. Some of them are traditional photos I take every year such as the one below and the ones with the kids and their gifts.

All the gifts laid out for the kiddos to open in the morning....

The boys really wanted a Wii... especailly Jarom. So Korey thought it would be neat to have Sariah get it and unwrap it....


Elijah and his gifts... he is still really enjoys art stuff....

Sariah and her stuff... (now isn't she cute)

Jarom and his stuff... well actually half the Wii stuff was Elijah's and the Wii was actually a family gift. But Jarom is happy!

Sariah's favorite gift lip gloss... she recieved about 15 things of it... thankfully she is really good about just keeping it on her lips... she loves that stuff! What a girly girl she is! She loves the color pink.

3 happy kiddos... (lip gloss in Sariah's hand)

Korey's gift... 2008 portion of my blog into a book for him... I`ll do 2009 very soon for him! He really enjoyed it!

Christmas Eve...

We drove to Coalville and enjoyed our Christmas Eve there... Games... Sleigh Ride... snow... yummy food... fun gifts  and good comapny! We came home by 9PM so that the kiddos could be snug in there beds for Santa Claus to come...

The kiddos and some of their cousins... all in their new PJs from Grandma & Pa

We all throughly enjoyed our Sleigh ride... what fun... we sang lots of Christmas carols... what wonderful memories...

Korey's brother's team of horses....

The Sunday prior to Christmas...

Just had to take some pictures... What adoriable kiddos we have. We throughly enjoyed our Sacrament program today.

An afternoon in the snow.. at Pa's and Grandma's

The boys definitely had a great time in Coalville sledding and playing in the snow... I think Pa had just about as much fun as they did.

Richins Christmas Party

We all enjoyed the annual Richins Christmas Party in Coalville. Everyone enjoyed Santa...especially Elijah when Santa seemed to know a lot about him and his Pa. Even Pa enjoyed sitting on his lap...

West Point Christmas Lighting... and we got spotted by the newspaper

The one time I leave my camera home... the newspaper people bring theirs... The kids and I had a great time going to the West Point Christmas lighting on Monday night... just to appear in the paper on Thur. Christmas caroling... Santa arriving on a fire truck... sitting on his lap... Mrs. Claus showing the kids their name in the Naughty & Nice book (thankfully they were in the nice section). What a great time we had... definitely will have to be a tradition.
