We spent Christmas Eve at my parents house having our traditional get together. Every year everyone opens up one present and are shocked to find new pj's, every year. It is always fun. After we get dressed into our new sleepwear we eat and watch a Christmas movie. It is always hard to get all the kids to behave in anticipation for what is to come later that night. Ezra was so excited and could not wait for Santa and Rudolph.

Chandler turned a year old on Dec. 11. We had a birthday party for her on Saturday. Everyone had a good time. We had lots of food, like always. I cannot believe we have had her for an entire year. I can't imagine life without her. She brings such a good spirit into our home. She is such a happy little girl. She loves to be the center of attention, and usually is. She brings our family together and everyone enjoys her. Her brother gets a little jealous, but he loves her. She is the first person he wants to see in the morning. She is usually the only one who can wake her daddy up without him being grumpy! She has been a blessing to us since the day we brought her home.

Last week we spent a couple days with in the valley with Moroni's sister Vee. We went to see the lights at the Temple. They were as beautiful as they always are. Ezra was amazed. He kept saying, "Wow! There are more than 100 lights!..." He wouldn't hold still for many pictures, but we managed to snap a couple. He mostly just ran around with his grandma. We sure were glad to have her there. She doesn't mind running with him, that is one of the many reasons he loves her so much. We also ran into tons of missionaries. Ezra did stop to take a picture with them, asking if they knew his uncle Dustin. Anyway, we had a good time. Chandler slept through the whole thing, and Moroni had to stay home to work, someone has to support my shopping habit.
