Martha's Farewell

My sister in law Martha is leaving for a mission on January 4Th and she will be serving in the Santa Cruz Bolivia Mission. She just had her farewell this past Sunday. We are going to miss her so much! But I know she is doing the right thing by serving the Lord.

My mother in law did an awesome job making this really yummy white chili! She always does really nice things for her kids and I am really grateful for her to be my mother in law.

I took a couple of pictures from that day so enjoy!

Mangey Scene

Christmas Day!

We spent the day with Brian's family this year. The day started with everyone opening there presents and then we went and had some egg casserole that I had made the night before that we put in the oven when we woke up. Everyone said it was really good but I think it could have been better :). Then we hung out at bri's parents for a little and then headed home. At 3pm we headed over to bri's Grandma Colleens house to have a Christmas gathering. It was so fun to see his family and catch up with everyone. Here are some pics from that day.

Christmas Eve!

The Maxwell's have a lot of traditions that we do on Christmas eve. the first thing we normally do is go caroling. Then we come home and have a yummy dinner my mother in law makes. After we eat we head into the living room and sing Christmas carols and we do a mangey scene. Here is the mangy scene and pictures from that night. I will post the video later here are the pics :)

It's Christmas Time!

That wonderful time of year is finally upon us! It is Christmas time :) I am already loving it too! The lights are up outside, there is snow on the ground and it is time for us to remember the Savior's birth. I love this time of year so much because you get to spend so much time with family. I love to give, bake, and sing Christmas carols. I just love everything :) Can you tell? This year we decided not to put a tree up because of Izzy she just gets into everything. But I have totally decorated my house. All i need to do it put up some lights outside. But tonight was a great night because we got to help the Maxwell family pick out there Christmas tree. This year was actually the first year I have ever picked out a tree. When I was growing up we had to have fake ones because my mom is allergic to pine. Then i found out my junior year I was too. So i have to have a fake tree too. It was a blast going out there and we even put on Santa hats :) here is a pic hope you all enjoy!
