This year we spent Christmas Eve with my family. First we all went ice skating at the Cottonwood Heights Rec. Center and had so much fun! Our kids had never been ice skating before and it had been years since Brian and I had been. The kids had a great time and I loved helping them skate around the ice and pick them up after they fell down.

Alex looks pretty miserable, but he just needed to get a little more comfortable and then he had some fun slippin' and slidin' around.
After skating, we went over to Grammy and Poppa's and the kids got to open all their presents from them. We had tons of yummy food and had a great time visiting while the kids played.
Manda got her first American Girl Doll. That is all she could talk about this Christmas! Santa actually didn't get much help from her about what to bring since she had already asked Grammy for Molly - the American Girl. And she finally got the long awaited present! YAY!! She loves her so much! Thanks, Grammy and Poppa!

Alex just hanging out with his best bud cousin, Nate, who he adores and completely looks up to. I hope Alex will turn out to be as sweet a teenager and Nate is!
Lots of fun Christmas Eve memories this year. Great times!!
