Christmas Catch-up

Making cutesy Christmas signs with my sisters-in-law, DeAnn and Courtney, over Thanksgiving weekend. 
 Our festiveness:
 Adorable letter to Santa:

This year, Christian and I were put in charge of our ward Christmas Party. It was a lot of work, especially since we didn't plan very well, but we were so pleased by how many people stepped up to help us out, and I think it turned out nicely.

 For an activity, I made a bunch of these ornaments, one for each family. We wrote one personal goal to help us remember Christ this holiday season, and put each family's slips inside.
 Props for the photo booth:
 My kids spent most of the night at the photo booth.

Thankfully, we got one family picture!

 Hannah had a band concert (that's her on the far left).
 I'm really proud of this sign I made for Christian's sister, Catherine. (Her last name is Faux-sounds like "fox:)

Halloween 2013

Playing catch-up:

The boys (Spyro, from Skylanders, and "boy with black cape")
 Isn't the tail adorable?
 The pretty vampire:
 ...and then she turned scary...

 Hannah didn't stay still for pictures, but she wore her Kaos costume from Aaron's party.

Rachel and Daddy walked together on the rain.
 The haul:
 (People in our neighborhood are crazy...who gives out full-size candy bars? My kids got a ridiculous amount of stuff)

 Rachel wasn't done dressing up...she used her red lipstick to get even scarier:

Christian and I dressed up as pirates for our ward trunk or treat:
