Merry Christmas!

We have had a busy December!  The kids had a couple school concerts, we've been exploring new areas, and making new and old traditions.  We went to the LDS Mesa Temple to see the lights and hear live Christmas music.

Preston is so excited for Christmas!  He just loves Santa and the magic of Christmas.  He's a first grader, which has really made me so sad for the families in Connecticut who lost a child and won't be with them for Christmas this year.

Logan is excited of course too.

Tanner still doesn't mind talking with Santa, but not too close.

The kids decorated the tree.  I think about 90% of our decorations are handmade by me or the boys.  Every year we talk about getting new decorations, but it doesn't seem to happen...maybe next year.

Preston turned 7.  I can't believe my youngest is that old now.

Tanner and Preston had school concerts.  Preston sang songs with the first grade class, so adorable.  Tanner played his sax and had a speaking part.

We are fans of The Piano Guys (if you've never seen them look them up on YouTube).  We surprised the kids with an early Christmas gift, a concert last Friday to The Piano Guys.  It was a lot of fun and entertaining.  Tanner was even able to get Jon Schmidt's autograph.  They will be performing for the big PBS fundraiser on TV, they are becoming very popular.  We were lucky to get tickets to one of their last smaller concerts before they get too big for us little people.

I'm so excited for my Christmas present that will be coming after Christmas, a new camera.  About half of the pictures I take with the camera I have now come out blurry.  Anyways, hopefully soon I will have clear quality pictures.  I can't wait.
