Yesterday I was teasing Sophia about her boyfriend Judson. She said "he's not my boyfriend". I affirmed that was right and that she was too young to have a boyfriend. She then said "Rees is my boyfriend. Judson likes me but I really like Rees." I had no idea such love triangles existed in first grade! I love how it keeps getting so complicated.

I think it's safe to say we had a visit (or two) from Santa this year! The day started off great. I thought it would be fun to have everyone sleep in the basement but Doug and I were the only ones who ended up there. Sophia was too afraid that she'd see Santa so she opted for her bed.

We've had such a fun time getting ready for Christmas this week! Most of this has included spending a lot of fun time with cousins! On Thursday we got to go to BYU to my dad's lab to see his pigeons and learn about the studies he does with them.Sophia loved having a turn holding Frank the pigeon.The other night we got all bundled up (I can't get enough of Lilly's hat) and headed to Spanish Fork for the... This one was definitely our favorite.After that we came home to make a gingerbread house.Unfortunately it only lasted a few minutes before it turned into this.
Yesterday we took advantage of our Pass of all Passes and took the kids mini golfing at Trafalga. It was kind of a nightmare. Mabel was definitely too little to go and Lilly cried every time she didn't make it in the hole on the first try.Here's Mabel stealing everyone's balls out of the hole.Here's a cute princes that decided to grace us with her presence. For some reason she looks really weird in this picture. She refuses to wear anything besides dresses and skirts these days and I love the addition of the purse.We also took a quick minute to watch the cool 4D movie they had going on. It was pretty great!
Last night we made the fun snowflake tortillas that were on Our Best Bites. The girls had a blast with that.This is random but I always like to take a picture of the cards we receive during the month. Thanks for thinking of us everyone!
Warning: This post is mainly for my sisters so sorry if there's too many boring wedding details. At the beginning of the week I was lucky enough to escape the kids for a few days and head to sunny Arizona for my cousin Shelly's wedding. It was such a great time and I'm so glad I got to go! The night before we met up at the temple to see the lights. It was so cool to see how they did them up in the palm trees!Here's my cute nieces, nephews, cousins (and cousin's roommate) at the lights.Me and Lexie at the lights. My brother had to stay back at the hotel to do some class work so she was nice enough to let me hang out with her!
