A quiet Sunday, spending time together and reflecting on all of our blessings in 2012. Even being far from our family members, we felt incredibly loved as we looked through the many cards and letters we received this Christmas. It helped us remember how much we are loved and we feel incredibly blessed.

The last Saturday of 2012 spent outside, sledding! After about an hour, we started to get chilly (and tired from hiking to the top of the hill over and over) and we settled on some delicious hot chocolate to warm our bones. Yum!

Five beautiful girls, having a make-over session to make us even more fabulous! We know how to work a clay mask, no?

Trying a new recipe - one *we* didn't make ;) It was the mexican 7 layer dip from Costco, with some gluten-free tortilla chips, which were delish! Loved it.

A jolly indoor snowball fight using HUGE marshmallows. Lots of fun, but don't throw TOO hard - they can sting! Ouch!

Christmas morning!! So fun and so exciting. The girls each received a great load of gifts, and we got to visit with Sis. Rammage, too. The rest of the day was spent quietly enjoying our new gifts and hanging out together. A perfect Christmas!

Christmas Eve made special by sharing it with friends! We spent the evening at the Howie's house, enjoying turkey dinner, acting out the Nativity, and opening a few gifts. It was a very special way to spend Christmas Eve.

December activity of the day - unwrap a new book to read! The girls had theirs unwrapped and almost read before breakfast. I love that they love to read!

I turned 34 today! I'm one step farther away from 30 and one step closer to 40! I enjoyed my day with dinner out as a family, then appetizers and dessert at Moxie's with some girl friends. I know how to party!

Another concert! This time it was the school choir, who all did a beautiful job singing their songs. A woman approached me afterward, asked if BB was my daughter, and told me how amazing her voice is. I was so proud of her!

Another fun "December Daily" surprise for the kids - opening a new "little people" nativity set to play with. I know the kids are getting older, but they had a lot of fun playing with this. It will be nice to have it in the family :)

The kids had their school concert today. It was "Christmas Around The World"! JJ sang about Mexico, B sang about Germany, and BB sang about Africa. TJ spent her time as a stage manager, doing the sound for it all. It was fun!

Tj worked hard to complete her first ever cake in her class at school. It turned out pretty darn good for her first one. I'll have to hire her to make the cakes for her siblings' birthdays!

TJ had the awesome opportunity to sing Christmas Carols, with the King family, on a local radio station. What a fun experience!

Taking photos in front of the tree. The kids were telling me about their wishes for Christmas. It's going to be a good one!

This might be the snowiest December in history - but the trees sure look gorgeous all frosty, against a blue sky!
