Merry Christmas Eve!

I have not updated our blog in forever! Lately when I think of blogging, it is the last thing I feel like doing. I am not sure why, I am just not that interested. I go in phases. It has almost been a month, sooo I feel like it is time I updated.

We have been busy, but having fun with the holidays.

At the beginning of the month we went to Festival of Lights Parade. Brady really enjoyed all the lights, but he did get chilly near the end.

If you look closely, you can see Santa repelling down the building, not sure why he did it, but it was funny.

We also made Christmas cookies, and ate way too many of them.

Last year, we started what we hope is a tradition of being salvation army bell ringers. So this year we along with Jeremy's parents, sister, and her family, we were bell ringers again. Salvation army normally has to pay bell ringers, so when people volunteer it saves a ton of money. Also, cute kids, candy canes, and Christmas Carols, bring in a lot more money. We had a fun time, and can't wait to do it again next year.

Even scrooge did some bell ringing
We have gotten quite a bit of snow this year, and one day I bundled Brady up and let him play in it. The only thing he was interested in seemed to be eating the snow, but we still had fun. I can't wait to get him in the mountains and in a tube or sled.

Brady and I were supposed to work in his class at our church for one of the Christmas eve services, but we both have colds, and I felt that I am too contagious to take care of other kids. It all worked out because instead we went to church with the rest of the family for a nice Christmas eve service.

We have a ton of presents to open in the morning, and there are even more that aren't in the picture!

I will share pics of Brady and his many presents and I hope to do better with blogging in the future. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas.
