Christmas 2010

Santa found us this year.  We must have been good, but there were times I really wondered :) 
Christmas morning and these are a few of our favorite things. . .

Boys in BYU hats

Girls with big guns (I cannot tell you how amazingly excited she was about this present.  Thank you Santa.)

Girls with new piano music (Harry Potter and Taylor Swift)

Girls with puzzle erasers things (are your kids into these?  These stocking stuffers were a hit this year)

And my favorite thing--a porch swing made by Ben!!!  It is beautiful, and I had no idea he had been working on it for the last 2 months.  Lucky for him our next door neighbor has a huge wood shop which is where he kept and worked on it.  It was hanging up and ready to swing on Christmas morning as I got a card that said, "Go look on the front porch."  The kids knew and even helped some, and none of them spelled the beans which is even more amazing :)  Hope Santa found you all too!


  1. Looks like a wonderful Christmas! In our home it really is a good thing that Santa still comes to 'mostly' good children. :)

  2. Awww, I LOVE it! So fun to have a porch swing.

  3. I love your swing!!! How great that they were able to surprise you with that. Amazing!

  4. Very sweet of Ben. I am super impressed. And it's nice to see another girl who loves guns :) Our Pretty Girl is so into trucks, guns, trains - we're wondering if this is normal...
