Merry Christmas Sunday

I love love love the Sunday before Christmas. Stone woke up not feeling so hot, but he allowed a couple pictures to be taken, and made it to church for the Sacrament meeting, and then snuck home. I got to be a part of a trio, and sang, "Oh Come, Oh Come, Emmanuel". Brought back many memories of singing with one of my best friends (Laur-Laur!) in our ward growing up. 
This December has been quite warm, but I won't complain. One of the many reasons why Texas rocks. A white Christmas would be awesome, but I sure love wearing my flip flops on December 22.

Cutest little photo bomb ever (below)!

You can tell he isn't feeling so hot, but he was a good sport to let me snap a few pics.

 And we got one laughing picture with his missing tooth!

Santa Claus 2014

As usual, the kids were super excited to see Santa. Stone got a little nervous that he'd forget to ask for something. Emerson was a bit shy, and Knox was totally in to him.

The official picture...

And a few candids I got...

Emerson's Dance Class

I got more video than I did pictures, but here are a few shots I managed to get for Emerson's half year/Christmas preview. Her recital isn't until May, but we always get to see her perform in her class the week before Christmas. She is so stinkin' cute, and did a great job.
Her class is tiny this year, so she is being moved to a bigger (and older) class in January. She's begging to go into gymnastics, so we may switch over to straight gymnastics after her recital in May, and give it a shot. As much as I loved (and still love!) dancing, I remember feeling the same way. Tumbling and cheerleading is where my interest was, and she'll be giving gymnastics a try in the summer and cheerleading in the fall. We'll see what she prefers!

Our little angel...

Emerson had her Christmas program at preschool, and she got to be an angel. Isn't her costume gorgeous? She got to say, "Glory to God in the highest." We just love this time of year!
