Brad and I were able to sneak out of town for a few days before Christmas. Our babysitter and the girls spent an evening decorating the kitchen with the most beautiful snowflakes. When we got home, it looked like a wonderland. I was so happy to have the kitchen decorated for Christmas Eve dinner. We had my parents and both my brothers and their families over for the festivities.

My brother and his wife have two boys. Dallin's birthday is on Christmas day, and Zachary's birthday is on Christmas Eve. Tawnie, my sister-in-law, started a tradition of having the kids decorate train car cakes to celebrate their birthdays. The kids had a blast and were so proud of their creations.
After everyone left, the girls opened their new Christmas pj's and we watched Luke 2 and Mr. Krueger's Christmas. Then it was off to bed to dream about Christmas morning.
