Our month of December was crazy and fun. To start off the month, Maura and I got a chance to go see a part of the Nut Cracker that Maura's best friend was in. It was so neat to get to go all by ourselves and enjoy a great show. Girls dates are the best!
Topher went through a phase of reading before bed. He didn't last very long. :)
We had an Elf on the Shelf come to our house and the kids named him Nick Buzz Snowball (because they couldn't agree on one name). He was in some crazy spots some days, but I happened to catch this message of "Be Good" on camera.
Drew and Cassie came from Buffalo. They got to stay with us for the first few days and we had lots of fun. Besides eating (a lot) we made and decorated cookies, shopped, and went to the temple to see the lights. It was so good to see them.
We had a great Christmas too. It was nice to have our first and only Christmas in our new house. The kids made sure to leave Santa cookies and carrots for the reindeer. Santa was good to us all.
