We hope you all had a very Merry Christmas. We had fun telling the girls the story of Christmas and trying to help them understand the reason we celebrate. It's fun to have them retell the story and see what things stand out in their mind. I am thankful for my Savior and for this time of year that we have to focus on Him. I hope that in the coming year I can be more like Him in the things that I do and say not just at Christmas time, but the whole year through. I am so blessed to have a wonderful husband and two little girls that are good examples to me and remind me of what I should be doing just by how they are. I love you guys :)

Merry Christmas!

Good news everyone, our wonderful family gave us a new camera for Christmas! So no more excuses, right? Anyway, I'm going to start this post with Christmas Eve. We stayed home and had some fun together. We went out to one of our favorite restaurants and basically just had a relaxing day. Josh didn't have to work so that was nice to have him with us. Later we made a gingerbread house.
We bought a kit and were trying to make it like the picture. It was fun, but I think it would have been more fun just to let the kids do whatever they wanted. But we had fun anyway.

The girls lasted about 15 minutes, but they were so excited about the present they got from Great Grandma and Grandpa Hunt that they decided to let mommy finish it. :)

The Hunt's have a family party on Christmas Eve every year. And, although we couldn't be there, we were able to talk over the computer (Skype) and they got to watch the girls open their gifts. Not quite as good as being there in person, but better than nothing.

This dollhouse is cool because they can play on both sides and not be in eachother "space". It makes it very nice :)

Christmas day was fun. The girls were so cute. They were excited and talking and laughing together in their room when they were supposed to be sleeping. When it finally got quiet, I went in to see if they were finally asleep, and this is what I found...

They almost never sleep together, only on special occasions or if they're "scared". I thought it was cute.
Anyway, we actually had to wake them up and remind them what day it was...

We were trying to leave for Burley by 9:00, that's why we didn't let them sleep in, although it would have been nice. After they saw what Santa brought, we got on Skype again and talked to Grandma Minnick and they opened their presents from her.
Here are some pics of them with a few of their gifts...

It was fun to talk to everyone in PA and we miss you all very much!

After all that excitement, we drove to Burley to spend the weekend there. It was nice to spend time with family and the girls had fun playing with their cousins.
One of their favorite things to do at Grandma and Grandpa's house is get in the hot tub with their Uncle Tucker...

He's the one behind the pink tube. He's an awesome uncle and they love spending time with him and all their other aunts and uncles :) They are very blessed to have so many people that love them!

We also had a gingerbread house building contest on Christmas. Here are what we all came up with...
Uncle Tyler's creation

Uncle Scott and Aunt Joy's creation (notice the hot tub..nice touch)

Uncle Brandon, Aunt Megan, Kylee and Jordyn's creation

Our creation

Of all the other fun things we did, most of all it was nice just to be with family. Whether it was on the phone, computer, or in person, it's the best thing in the world to know that you have people that care about you and love you. We want you all to know that we love you too!
