Christmas Day

Merry Christmas! Anjuli woke up this morning yelling "Mom! It's Christmas it's Christmas it's Christmas!"
First we followed our strings. Anjuli's led to her new princess pop-up tent with a princess castle inside.She also got a set of farm animals

Princess Color Wonders
And a new movie (all garage sale finds!)

Zion's string led to the pantry.

He got a new Spiderman scooter (brand-new for $1)!Zeya's string led to his new pop-up tent.
He got an Octopus Peek a Shoe.
All the kids got a new pirate water-table. Jazzy liked crawling underneath it :)
Zui's "imaginary string" led to... a t-shirt!
My string led under the bed to a new stockpot! I've been wanting one of those for a while!
Enjoying the other toys...

We "lost" Jazzy and found her...outside the front door!
Merry Christmas everyone!

Christmas Eve

Christmas pics at our Ward Christmas party. Jazzy decided Santa's hat looked tasty!Jazzy girl posing for me Christmas Eve morning :)

Christmas Eve morning we headed out to go caroling at a nursing home that a lady in our ward attends. I looked over and saw Anjuli and Zion holding hands.
Zui and I played 2 duets.

Then we headed to the waterpark! The kids had soo much fun. I can't wait to go again.

Teri, our babysitter, came with us. It made all the difference having an extra set of hands to help out.

Anjuli and Zui battle it out.

We saw our good friends the Ohki's there. They invited us to join them for lunch! The kids of course loved the pizza, fries, and lemonade (thanks!)

Grandpa Ohki was kind enough to hold baby Jaz for a while. With Teri watching Anjuli and Zion, and Zeya asleep in the stroller, Zui and I took off on a mini-date! When we came back, Jasmine was sleeping soundly in Grandpa Ohki's arms :) Here, all the kids are trying to warm up--it was a pretty windy day.
After a good long nap, we had our family Christmas Eve program. Zui told the nativity story while the kids acted it out.

Zeya usually doesn't wear tiaras, but he was our wise man, and we didn't have a crown...Jazzy was our sheep (check out her pajamas :)
And that black panther, unfortunately, is our baby Jesus. We couldn't find any of Anjuli's baby dolls so we had to improvise.

The kids each got to open one present afterwards. Anjuli and Jazzy got matching new dresses.
Zeya and Zion got new pajamas. Zeya LOVES his new Cars pj's (he calls them "Tars").

Zion got Buzz Lightyear, which he loves second to his Spiderman pj's.
The kids had a busy, but fun, day! Now on to Christmas day :)

We spent a day at the beach with Zui's good friend Gordon and his family. I love that my kids can play for hours there and never get bored. Good times.
