We made it safely home from our vacation and the kids got to skip school again, but Dad had to go back to work. When it got dark, we drove over to the Spanish Fork Festival of Lights! It was a neat drive through lots of fun lights – the kids loved it!

The kids purchased some gifts for each other at the school’s Christmas shop and they were so excited to wrap them up for each other today.

Our project today was some fun Christmas pins. They were a little harder than I thought they would be – just because the beads were so small, but the kids helped where they could! We are going to give them away with some of our friend treats.

We started our baking and treat-making today. First up, we made these adorable marshmallow snowmen. The kids loved attaching the M&Ms and Pretzels.

Joey had his podcast tonight, but the kids and I headed over to our ward Christmas party. It was good food. Then after the kids went to bed, I spent a long time working on getting treats made.

We surprised the kids with an outing to “Breakfast with Santa” at Thanksgiving Point. We got to eat breakfast, sing carols with Buddy the Elf and Mrs. Claus, talk to Santa, and lots of fun crafts and activities. The kids had a great time, even though JJ wouldn’t go see Santa. But they both loved sitting in the fireplace where Santa came out! In the afternoon, we went and saw “Tangled” which was so cute and we all loved it. And then in the evening, we headed up to Salt Lake City for the annual Homestarmy Christmas Party. This year we went to Pete’s house and there was lots of good food, visiting, and watching The Muppet’s Christmas Carol.

Dancing to Christmas music is always so much fun! It was so cute to watch the kids do some dancing together tonight.
