We started our Christmas Eve the traditional way, by having breakfast at the Wade's. The Wades are a wonderful couple in our ward who invite all of their friends and neighbors to come on Christmas Eve morning, anywhere from 8-10 to have a breakfast of pancakes, ham, eggs and orange juice. It is so much fun, and one of our favorite traditions!
We went from the breakfast to go sledding at the golf course. Then we went out to lunch at Pizza Pie Cafe - another tradition!
After our late lunch, it was time to go to our annual Christmas Caroling in Sugar City. This is a picture of a few of us before. Shawn and I were grateful for our Viking hats, as it was a VERRRRY cold night and those beards kept our faces warm:
There was a HUGE turn out this year with at least 80 people and two loaded trailers! We went to Ann and Bill Moss's house afterwards for a dinner and short program.
The last couple of weeks before Christmas I was feeling the regular Christmas rush, but also felt really overwhelmed because i had been asked to speak on Christmas day and needed some time to get my thoughts together for that talk! I finally finished it up late Christmas Eve. Santa really delivered this year and boy were we grateful!:
I think of it as the technological Christmas because Shawn got a tablet/computer from me, Caden got a lap top, Maddie got a tablet, I got a fitbit from Shawn, Isabelle got an Ipod, Nolan got an air hockey table and Abram got a robot.
