~Tis the Season~

Sami is "the" angel in the ward nativity!!!

Zach was a lamb.. Did I mention he stood center stage and just hung out during the whole nativity!!

Sami and Zach in the nativity.  Alex was at a basketball game and missed the nativity!

Sami had her first piano recital.  Grandma Sans brought her flowers. 

Santa and  Mrs. Clause showed up unexpectedly one evening.  Yes, I am in my "uniform."

The kids came home from a play date (at Annetta's) with balloon hats. 

We had a boys only night with our cousins Tate and Wayde.  (clothing optional)

Sandi took Sami and I to the play "Annie".  We had a great time!

Family pictures!  This is the epitome of my family; happy little boys, Sami mature and posing, Chad and I wrapping our heads around what we have created!

Last but not least, her is Alex in his Junior Jazz jersey!  He plays  every Saturday morning.  Earning the mom of the year award, I have yet to take my camera!

Tis the season!  We have been to parties and devoured goodies.  We have played ball and gone swimming.  We have been to piano recitals and nativities!  We have sang Christmas carols and read Christmas stories.  We have sent and received Christmas cards!  We have been to luncheons and plays!  This is a crazy, busy time of year and I LOVE it!  I love that people are generous and thoughtful!  I love getting Christmas cards and neighborhood treats!  I love going to Christmas parties, but what I love most is the Savior.  I think it is important that we don't forget the greatest gift of all, that God gave His Son and His Son gave His life, that each of us might have the gift of eternal life.   I testify that he lives and loves us, all of us!  May we all feel his love through out the season!

  1. So cute Rachie! Sami was so hilarious during the Nativity. Your boys are just hams. What a fun time of year to look back at all the joy you have in your home.
