We spent New Year's with Jeff and Paige and the Hawkins family. The kids had a blast swimming. The food and company were both awesome.

Hadlie is very daring and therefore loves the diving board.

Bronco is a little more cautious but Jeff and Judd finally convinced him to balance on the noodle.

We had a wonderful Christmas. December was full of family, friend, and kid parties. We had the "Gordon Hanks" Christmas party at Fat Cats. This was the first time Hadlie and Bronco have ever bowled and they loved it.

One of our Christmas parties was at Noah's in Lindon. The kids had a great time playing in the racquetball court and breaking the pinata. The adults also enjoyed a fun game of Volleyball.

The kids are starting to really understand Christmas better which makes the season even more magical. On our way home Christmas Eve, any light the kids saw in the sky was Rudolph's nose or Santa's sleigh. Hadlie said she got everything she wished for which was great considering we really cut back on toys and tried to teach them more about the true meaning of Christmas. Unfortunately, we didn't take very many pictures on Christmas because we mostly used the video camera.

Our Christmas tree. I think this might be the last year we get a real tree. I love having a real tree so my house will smell good but it seemed like the smell only lasted two or three days.
