December! The only month we really had any snow this winter.  Kaiden kept asking every time it snowed to go out and play in it.  Spencer helped Kaiden build a snow slide down my parents driveway hill where my dad didn't scrape the snow and he loved it! He is a little daredevil and will go down head first.

Ward Christmas Parties! We went to my parents ward party which was a country Christmas theme.  My mom gave Kaiden a santa hat to wear and he wore it the entire time! I was so surprised he kept it on but he was sooo cute.

 Grayson was terrified of Santa and Kaiden wouldn't even look at him haha

The second ward party at our church was the same, Kaiden didn't like looking at santa and Grayson was terrified again.

Christmas Eve this year was our traditional dinner at my Grandma Carters house. And we did our songs and stories and acted out the nativity scene.

 Our tree all ready to go after santa came.

Christmas Day--we opened presents at our house before we headed to the grandparents.  My mom and dad came over to watch and so we woke up the boys once they got here and Kaiden started acting all shy.  So after saying for months that he wanted a "big boy bike" from santa we didn't get the reaction we wanted to but oh well, he loves it.

 Kaiden loved his dusty hat that his Auntie Sharissa gave him, he wore it all day.

 First test ride on the new bikes!

 We tried to get a family picture at the end of the day....

 They are spoiled!!!!

 Christmas Jammies

And the randoms for the month:

 I went to lunch with my friends to Wallaby's and Kaiden sat here and said "mom take my picture" it was cute.

 BYU game day-blurry picture but we were all dressed up in our BYU outfits

 Hard at work in his dusty hat and on his new computer

 Kaiden and Scarlett danced and danced for 20 minutes at Nate and Brooke's wedding.  We had to talk Kaiden into doing it and then he loved it and wouldn't let go of her hands. Then it turned into Kaiden swinging Scarlett around and around and going in circles til they wiped out.  Nonetheless, it was really cute.

 Yes there is still snow but Spencer had to take his bike out for a test ride

We had family pictures right before Christmas while everyone was here and I was basically dying this day and so sick.  Spencer was sick two days before this and then I started feeling really sick like I wanted to throw up but never did.  It is the worst feeling ever.  So that I even look alive in any of these pictures is a miracle.

We had to go to Hee Haw Farms one more time before it closed for the season.  Kaiden really loved riding Bear and had to ride him again.  He remembered which one was Bear too.  Grayson loved checking out all the animals, especially the little piggies.  We tried to get Kaiden to pet a pig but he wouldn't.

We had our family pictures done by Sharissa's friend Brooke up Mapleton canyon in October and these are a few of my favorites.  The boys were not smiley and happy at all that day unfortunately though but we still got some really good ones.

This year we had Thanksgiving dinner at my parents house.  There was lots of good food and fun people!

We went bowling with all my cousins during Thanksgiving break and Kaiden liked it the first few bowls but all he really wanted to do was play on the arcade games.

Time to put up our Christmas tree!  It was fun this year having both boys help decorate.  This was the only night that our tree looked good.  We made sure it was secured to the wall and all the breakable ornaments were up high but it still got all moved around and messed up for the next month.

Here is the random section for the month :)

 We took our first ever vacation of just the 4 of us to Park City for the weekend in November but sadly this is the only picture I have left, I had a little mishap when transferring the pictures to my hard drive, lesson learned.  But it was a great weekend and we had a lot of fun relaxing and hanging out with the boys.
