Christmas 2014

It was a really good Christmas this year. We were very blessed to be able to give a lot to our kids this year because we were very smart and responsible with our money all year long. Now we are trying very hard to make sure they keep it real and don't become spoiled brats. One of my favorite things about this Christmas was my kids participation in our evening singing time as a family. We usually read a Christmas book or have pop corn and watch Polar Express. Anything to get them away from their video games and spend time together. This year Dallin and Addie presented stories about giving and the spirit of Christmas. The stories they picked were really touching. And the coolest part was one night Olivia and Derek announced they made up a song for all of us. They sat together and Derek introduced Livyy then she sang this made up song. It was actually pretty good. And shocker Olivia can sing! Holy cow I did not see that one coming. It was really cool. I hope she joins choir or does something with that talent one day..(maybe I should help her look into that)
