Decking the Halls

We have been busy with all our holiday festivities and in all that business I lost the cord for our camera and couldn't download pictures, I finally found it and now you will be bombarded with all that we have been doing.

Raking leaves, the boys were kind of helpful, but Nathan was not thrilled with being in the leaves.
Thanksgiving dinner, it was the first one I did on my "own," our friends the Rustens also came to celebrate and they helped with some of the food too so I guess it wasn't totally on our own. It was all very delicious.
We put up our tree, this is the first year Alan allowed me to put up a fake tree, after last year with the boys and I having terrible allergies I guess he decided it was better not to have really grumpy kids.
Alan and the boys chillin.

Cute Nathan. Samuel, Nathan and Jacob.
Our heat went out a couple of times and it got pretty cold in the house we all got used to sitting around the fire. The boys really wanted to drink their hot cocoa by the fire.
We went on a fun hay ride with some friends to see some Christmas lights.
Our ward Christmas party was a lot of fun. Nathan dressed as an Elf.

There was lots of dancing and a fun time seeing Santa. I wasn't supposed to be in the picture.

We are excited to be celebrating Christmas with family in Utah.
