Christmas Post

This was such an enjoyable Christmas. I have never had a non enjoyable Christmas per-say but since being married they have become so hectic and stressful. This year I got all of my shopping done way early and was able to sit back and enjoy! I have finally come to the realization that splitting our time amongst family is always going to be like this. And what is so wrong with that? I love our families, they love us, and there isn't a better feeling.

We started off at Jolene and Johns home, Christmas Eve morning. We enjoyed breakfast, games and watching the boys (Blake and Josh) enjoy their lego game we got for them. Please enjoy the photos below. Me and Anth bought a Canon T2i. It has been fun to take photos not on a phone.

From Jolene and Johns we went to Leonard and Debbbies. We enjoyed snacks, their company, and wrapping the last couple of presents with Leonard. I love wrapping presents. I was overjoyed when he said he had some left. Unfortunately the only other kid there was Mike. Everyone else was coming on Christmas. Sad! We missed them all! We didn't take as many pictures because we were so exhausted come present time. We did have a blast though. We left their house around 9. We drove home. While Anthony unpacked and packed the car, I prepared a french toast casserole in preparation for Tremonton.

Tremonton. We arrived at almost 11. We finally collapsed in bed at midnight. We both were exhausted! I woke up at 7:30 and got the breakfast casserole in the oven. Church at 11:30.  Games, playing with Jaden and Alexa and laughter were the best parts of Treetown. I always appreciate that even though Christmas is caotic at the Hill house with the grandkids we still do our traditional cocoa and scripture reading. It is so important to all of us.
Prettiest Tree ever! Thanks to Grandma Nelson for her beautiful ornaments that we get to enjoy forever because of her amazing talent.

This one is blurry. I don't have many pics of her though. I just think she is the cutest Mom ever. I love this picture.

Mom. LOL. She decided she was going to buy a new ugly sweater every year. She is adorable! She rocks it.

I hope everyone had a wonder Christmas. I am so grateful for my families. I am grateful for My Savior and the gospel that I have in my life. Thank you Hill, Lyman and Kemme family for your constant love to us.
