Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve was great this year! Uncle Alden and Laura Lee were here from New York. When they arrived we had dinner and played games. Then after dinner it was more games followed by a quick Christmas movie the church put out.
Then for the second year in a row and maybe starting a new tradition the girls all had a sleep over. They wished Maurice goodbye, sine he would be flying back to the North Pole and then it was off to sleep. Well, not really. More like an hour and half later everyone was asleep. But they never left their room They stayed in there talking and playing. So sweet! I love these girls!

Dear Bella

Dear Bella,

I've getting so emotional just thinking about writing this post.
I know it sounds lame but I really can't believe it's been 10 years! My life changed for the better when you were born. I could not have ever believed how much happier my life would be when I became your mom. Watching you grow these last 10 years has been nothing short of amazing!.
As dad and I reflected on what it was like 10 years ago we both just smile with pride.

We know Heavenly Father knew you would be a great example to your younger sisters. You have a strong testimony of Jesus and that's just one of the many things we love about you!

We hope this next year as a 10 year old is the best ever!
