It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

On Monday night we went to the annual Transcript Bulletin Christmas party. It's always a lot of fun and this year was no exception. Santa comes and the kids get a huge bag of fun little toys and tons of candy. We had a really yummy dinner. They do gift giveaways for all the employees. Miles won a couple little knives- not so thrilling to me but Miles was excited! They also do basketball shoot outs. Scotty got a dollar for trying a shot with the kids, I missed my shot and then had to corral little kids so I didn't try again, but then Miles, on his 3rd attempt, made the half court shot and won $25!! Go Miles!

Scotty was eager to tell Santa exactly what he wanted: Anakin's spaceship and a Pillow Pet!

Grant said he didn't want to sit on Santa's lap, but he was totally fine when it was his turn. Afterwards when we were talking about sitting on Santa's lap and that Grant asked for a big fire truck, Grant holds up his hands and says "See, no fire truck. Didn't work." He cracks me up!!

Collin looks like he's about to lose it, but he actually didn't even cry. He had this terrified look on his face and wouldn't look at Santa, but he sat there long enough for a picture and also another picture with his brothers.

On Tuesday night we decided to go in to Temple Square to see the Christmas lights. It was the perfect night to go considering it was 45˚! I loved not having to bundle up everyone with hats and gloves and then still freezing our butts off. The lights were beautiful as always and the boys had a really fun time. I love the peaceful feeling at Temple Square. It's the perfect place to go to remember and focus on our Savior's birth.
