Keeping Christmas short...

I was so excited for Christmas this year I kind of got burned out tooooo early. We had such a great Christmas it was our first really home bound. I loved it! CHRISTMAS EVE could have gone a little bit better! We rushed home from Christmas eve dinner and quickly put Zander done for bed. Shortly after he went down he started screaming...we let him cry. After a while we decided we better check on him...he had spilled the entire bottle on his head and chest. Dustin took off his bran new pi's and put him in the bath. He PooPed in the tub for the first time. I was making cookies for santa with Co and it was way past bed time. I felt like we were never going to sleep. We were spoiled once again for Christmas. Christmas is so much fun with kids.

Temple square lights

It has been years since Dustin and I went up to see the lights. The biggest change since the last time was...the addition of two boys to our family. It was freezing cold that night. I was miserable. We walked around as fast as we could and then booked it for the trainWe had to wait forever for the train home. Next time I am going on a weekday right as they turn on the lights...and I'm not taking trax (sp?)
