Next was Temple Square. Mike's family had a wonderful Christmas party at Daina's house. Laughs, Food, the kids ran crazy but afterwards most people had to leave except us and Daina and Aaron. So we headed to Temple Square to see the fantastic lights.
Hailey was stuck on Daina the 95% of the time.
Another wonderful way to express Christ in Christmas was being with friends. Or I should say help making friends. My Primary co-teacher helped set up a small Christmas party for our kids. It was so nice to see everyone having fun with each other. Each child holds a special talent or skill that we all have learned from this past year.
We hope that they remember this day and continue to be friends with each other even after they moved on to bigger and better things.
I am so proud of Mike. He made our girls this kitchen from an old dresser. 2 ovens, 2 stove top burners, 1 sink. He is so creative. And they loved it!
Mike and I didn't get each other much this year. Actually we didn't get each other anything. Since he's been working on our van for the last few weeks we haven't seen much of each other. So on Christmas night we had a date on our couch. He picked up some movies for us. I picked up our favorite snacks and we enjoyed each other's company. Mike has a quote that is fantastic-Christmas is about presence NOT presents!
I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas.
