|The big boys in the their new Christmas jammies.|
|Good morning! It's Christmas!|
|Carter has been having fun telling us where the hands of his new watch are pointing and letting us figure out what time it is.|
|Jude was so happy with all of his "car cars"|
|We spent the day putting together Legos which made Carter the happiest kid alive. This was not even half of the Legos he received.|
|After Jude went to bed we played Ninjago|
|We had a great Christmas with family and friends and were happy to just be together. We hope you had a great holiday and a fantastic year!|

Last night we met up with my Uncle Jim and cousin Elizabeth at the temple to look at the lights. It was raining and cold but they were really pretty. We ended up in the city creek food court and the boys played at the dinosaur playground. It was nice to see my family around the holiday!

Yesterday my little boy turned 2! I cannot believe how fast these 2 years have gone. Jude brings so much joy and laughter in to our lives and is such a happy little guy. We are so grateful for him and the blessing he has been to our family.
Happy Birthday Dude!!
These pictures go backwards but I am too lazy to move them:
|Carter and Jude with their cousins at our ward party|
|Finally a happy smily picture of Carter with Santa!|
|I think he was a little shocked to actually be meeting Santa. He even forgot to tell him what he wanted!|
|Jude wasn't sure what was going on...|
|Kissing my Santa under the mistletoe|

|My friend from California made hats and beards for the boys last year and I absolutely love them! I am so glad Carter likes wearing his now!|

Carter has always been a sweet and very complimentary little boy. I have really tried to teach him to say nice things when he thinks them by always complimenting him and saying nice things about him. Last night while we were snuggling at bed time and I told him "I'm just going to roll over." He quickly responded with "But Mom, I can't see your cute face!" Just melted my heart! He ended up in our bed this morning and I snapped a picture of him snuggling with his daddy. Such a good little boy (most of the time...)

As part of our month of giving we've tried to be more available to babysit for anybody who needs it. Our good friends the Van Den Akker's (who watch the boys during the week) were due for a date night so we got to take their kiddos. The boys were thrilled to have Pennie and Owen over and I loved getting some girl time with Pennie! All in all the kids were great but I'm pretty sure they all wore each other out!
And this is proof... Carter during primary the next day. Not sure how he didn't fall off his chair!

Last night we finally put up the Christmas tree. Carter was so excited and couldn't wait one more minute!
|Carter was most excited about putting the star on the tree. Even before the lights and the ornaments were up he kept asking about it. We let him do it this year.|
|Carter's section of the tree. Eventually I will even it out but for now it stays like this...|
|We got out the nativity for the kids and Carter started playing with it. This picture made me smile as it shows that he knows what Christmas is really about.|

This year for Thanksgiving I took a trip to California to be with my fauxrents since Nancy's dad had passed away the week before. It was my first time ever taking a trip without either Dave or the boys so of course I was worried. Plus I knew I would miss them on Thanksgiving and miss all the new traditions we have with the Philpotts. It turned out ok, even though I didn't get pumpkin roll or play charades, and we all had a fun holiday.
