Our December 2009
December is always a fun month but for Brigham at the beginning it wasn't so fun because he had some immunizations and that is never fun! We got to go and visit a dear friend and her family while our van had it's mandatory warranty check, we had a great time! Wil had his birthday, hurray! Hyrum had his Christmas program at school which was so fun to watch. He had a lead role in leading all of his class in a dance he made up for their Hanuka song. He cracks us up! We went for a sleigh ride in the very cold winter weather I think it was in the teens and then we had complimentary hot cocoa which was very welcomed! Actually the sleigh ride was free too so a wonderful activity for a poor college family of six! :) Hyrum had a turn at driving the team until one of the horses wanted to start running and well, the driver took over thankfully! :) He was going to let Eliza have a turn but the one horse really wasn't co-operating. Then we had our traditional Mexican dinner for Christmas eve and our traditional cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning, homemade this year instead of Rhodes Rolls. I made one batch peppermint white chocolate and the other regular gooey goodness! Yum! Oh and our Mexican dinner consisted of Chili con Carne(pictured)that Wil made by scratch and then Wil's salsa and quesadillas, tacos, and taquitos. I also made Cheesy potato soup another tradition on Christmas day or I might have actually ended up doing it the day after, I can't remember. It was a lovely holiday and we feel so blessed!
