I know Christmas was two weeks ago, but since this is the only way I journal I have to document it. We had a great Christmas. On Christmas Eve we started out the day by decorating Christmas cookies for Santa. Logan had been asking to do this since we put our tree up at the beginning of December so he was so excited to finally be able to do it.

Later, we went to lunch/dinner at Red Lobster with the Quinney family. This is one of David's favorite traditions.
To end the night we went to my grandparents house for probably my favorite traditions of the year.
We took our annual family picture on the stairs.

Logan decided to tell jokes for the talent show. He is very into making up his own jokes and that is just what he did.
Santa came. Logan told him he wanted a red bike.
Brooklyn was not too sure about Santa.

After Santa we did the nativity. Logan really wanted to be a shepherd this year. And he made a darn cute one.

I have one picture of Christmas morning. In my defense we do have video of it. We had a great Christmas morning. Logan got his red bike, legos, clothes, books, gift cards, Skechers, and nerf guns. Brooklyn got a baby and baby stroller, clothes, books, and more dolls. David got a new tablet and some BYU gear. I got new clothes and gift cards. It was a great Christmas morning. After opening toys we went to church. It was so great to be able to go to church on Christmas to bring back the true meaning of why we celebrate.
This is Brooklyn with her baby and stroller.

After church we went over to my parents house. And of course I have no pictures of that either. My parent were so generous and for Christmas gave us money to be able to get our awesome kitchen table.
After my parents we went to David's brothers house. We had lunch then opened gifts. Here is Logan with his stocking from David's parents. David's mom made blankets for everyone this year. She did an amazing job. We can't wait to use our new blankets at the BYU games!

And Brooklyn enjoyed some goldfish she got in her stocking.
To end the night we went to my parents and played games. It was a very chaotic, but very enjoyable Christmas. I am so grateful to my Savior and for the true meaning of Christmas. Thank you so much to everyone who made it so special.
