Christmas Day 2012

We had a great Christmas this year.  The kids are all at a fun age.  Haylee is 13, Megan 11, Abby 8, and Ethan 4.  They are growing up so fast but I am enjoying them at this age.  They all loved what they got from Santa this year.  Haylee got a Ihome dock for her ipod.  Megan was so excited to get an ipod touch.  Abby loves her Easy Bake Oven.  Ethan loves his Leap pad which he calls his own ipad.  This year Andy was off for Christmas and it was really nice spending the whole day with him.  Here are some fun pictures of our Christmas day. 

Christmas 2012

Midway Manor

My Parents have an amazing house up in Midway that we are very fortunate to be able to enjoy.  My parents wanted to have Christmas up there this year and so a few days before Christmas we went up to Midway and spent a few days enjoying some family time.  We had a great time.  

We went to Soldier Hollow and went tubing.  This was our first time going to Soldier Hollow and it was so much fun.  I think we are going to make a tradition to go there every winter.

This is the lift that pulls you up the Hill.  This is the only way I will go tubing.  

This picture I took right after Ethan went down the hill for the first time.  We was so scared and had tears.  A few minutes later he was asking to go again.  By the end of the 2 hours we were there he was going down by himself and loved it.

The kids enjoyed making a gingerbread house.

We also made rice crispy snowmen.  They turned out pretty cute!

On Christmas Eve it snowed most of the day and the kids made a giant snowman.  I think they did a pretty good job with the help their Dad, Aunt Shara and a couple cousins.

In Midway they have a pretty cool outdoor ice skating rink. So on Christmas eve we took the kids ice skating. They loved it and it was so much fun.

Haylee and Megan were pretty good and loved skating around the rink with me.

Abby held onto the side most of the time, but she got a little bit better towards the end.

Ethan was pretty good.  He didn't want me to hold onto him very much and was very daring by himself.  He fell a lot but it didn't seem to bother him, he just got right back up and kept skating.
