Christmas 2011

This first picture is completely random and has nothing to do with Christmas, but I had to post it because it was so cute. I checked on Aubree during her nap the other day and she looked so precious I just had to snap a picture. She's sleeping on a unicorn pillow pet, a bumblebee pillow pet and a Hannah Montana pillow. All these Christmas pictures are in backwards order, but that's ok:) We went to Grandpa Scott and Grandma Sherry's for lunch and opening presents. Here's Syd opening a present (her favorite thing)

Here's the twins opening their presents from Grandma & Grandpa

The girls opening presents at our house Christmas morning

Our Family Gift....A Wii. We decided to get a Wii for our whole family this year, so each of the girls got just a few presents to open from us.

The girls coming down the stairs Christmas morning at 6 am. Syd and Aubs are all smiles, but Ky looks a little sleepy.

Sloan & the girls made "Reindeer Food" composed of Rice Krispies, red sprinkles and oatmeal. Here they are Christmas Eve putting the Reindeer food out.

One of our family traditions is to open up new jammies on Christmas Eve. This year Syd got panda jammies, Aubs got Hello Kitty ones and KyKy got Lalaloopsy.

The Sunday before Christmas we went to see the lights at Temple Square as a family.The lights and the Temple were beautiful, but it was VERY crowded. Next year we'll have to go a little earlier in the season.

Our 3 Beautiful Girls

The Twins are in a pilot program through Alpine School District designed to help with their speech. It's called Talking Time, and it's basically a one hour a week preschool where for the first 30 minutes they focus on one sound and do games and activities as a group focusing on that sound. For the second part of the hour, the kids work on a craft while each one is called over individually for one-on-one speech therapy. They absolutely love it. This past week Mrs. Santa Claus came to visit their class and gave them each a gift.

Syd had a busy week this past week too. She played "O Come All Ye Faithful" at her piano recital. She was a little nervous, but she did a superb job. We were so proud of her. After she played at the recital, we left and went straight to her school where the whole 1st grade put on a program with songs from "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". I took this picture of her right before we left for the recital. I can't believe how grown up she looks.
