Ward Christmas Party

We had so much fun at our Christmas Party (for our church) last night~ it was decorated so beautiful and the food was so yummy! The kids decorated their own gingerbread cookies and there was a wonderful program filled with laughter and joy and also reverence for our Savior's birth! My primary kids sang...although you couldn't hear them so well because the gymnasium sucked up all their sound! Of course Santa came to the event...and he was a hit! This is Hailey watching Santa come into the room...she was falling asleep just a second before!
Hailey had been telling me all day that Santa was going to bring her lipstick at the party and I had to continually remind her that he probably wouldn't have a gift for her at the party! Before Santa could even ask her what she wanted she told him her list...lipstick!

We quickly added Izzie to Santa's lap as we were really curious as to what she would do. She was so cute...she looked at him and slowly her lips curled upward into the biggest grin ever! My camera is not quick enough to catch that shot but I got one of her telling the crowd how much she liked Jolly Old St. Nick!

Our family enjoying dinner! Except for Izzie, as she was being loved by members of our ward...as usual!

We are enjoying every last minute that we have to spend with my mom before my parents big move across the country! She has been such an amazing part of our lives for the past 2 1/2 years here. OHHHHH what will we do without her??? I can't even bare the thought yet!
