There's no better way to kick off the Christmas season, than remembering the reason!
I love this time of year!
I love that we remember our Savior's birth and the reason he came to earth.
I'm grateful to know that He Lives and loves us on a personal level.
I love that this season promotes service. What better way to show your gratitude to Jesus than to be like Him, and serve one another.
I know that we have a loving Heavenly Father, that sent His only begotten Son down to us, so we can be saved.
He is the reason for the Season.
We spent a lot of time this month reading Christmas stories, and watching videos.
We enjoyed all the activities there are to do as a family.
Here are a few...
We spent one of our FHE this month going to the Mission Inn to see the lights.
My favorite part was the mini donuts we bought on the street!
We also got to meet Fritz Coleman, when we took a trip to Victoria Gardens. He was there for a "Toys for Tots" drive.
Even though the boys look bored to death, they LOVED seeing the lights in Rancho this year.
They're both at such a fun age, where they show excitement over every little thing.
I love it!
Instead of Ginger bread houses, we made Christmas trees!
Jessie hosted Christmas Eve this year. We had yummy food, and enjoyed each others company. Porter and Max were spoiled rotten by my siblings and parents.
This was the best Christmas morning I've ever had.
The pure joy and excitement that my kids expressed, gave me butterflies. I love seeing them happy! Porter's first word after opening every present was "WOW!!!"
Grandma Jeanne made all the PJ's again!
A few days after Christmas they were still playing with all the loot.
This months updates...
Guess who's fully potty trained???!!!
Well, for pee at least. Poop is still a sensitive subject.
Porter even gets up in the middle of the night to go by himself. I'm so proud of him.
The motivation that worked? (after literally trying everything)
Extra Screen time
He sings "Let it Go" all the time
He's finally going to bed without a fight, and will sometimes choose to sleep with Porter in his bed.
This pic is random...but I just thought it was cute catching Max kiss himself in the mirror.
