Christmas 2011

this year's Christmas was a lot of fun for us.  the girls weren't big enough to really understand what was going on, but they still had fun and so did we.

thanks to Grandpa Wayne and Grandma Dianne, we got a lifesize Christmas tree this year!  it was beautiful and big and we loved it! thank you!  

fiona (pink) and sabrina (blue) 
loved climbing onto the couch and pulling off all the ornaments they could get their hands onto.  
once, they even squirmed underneath the futon to get at the tree! 
those girls are too clever for their own good!

the girls also LOVED (and climbed on and squished and squeezed and snuggled with) the giant Christmas bear we borrowed from Auntie Kati, but as you can see, Dallin liked it quite a bit too!

we got a gingerbread house to decorate and had a lot of fun eating all the candy that was supposed to make it onto the house:
my house:

dallin's house:
but really, it was the same house, we just decorated different sides of it.  as you can see, dallin CLEARLY has more artistic ability than i do :)

and for some good measure, some funny pictures of the girls

stuffing their faces full of yummy bananas
(i don't know where they got that! neither dallin nor i like bananas...)

we had a wonderful Christmas season and loved spending time with family and friends! we saw some wonderful things and made some wonderful memories and have some new traditions (Festival of Trees).  even though the girls didn't understand what Christmas was this year, I'm excited for how fun it will be next year! Merry Christmas everyone!


  1. Your little girls are so adorable, Becki!! They're getting so big!
