Special Christmas

This Christmas was very special and amazing to me because it was at my Grandma and Grandpa Tillack's house. We did the old fashioned hay ride, we at all the delicious food, we all slept on the floor. We got our traditional Christmas Eve Pajama's and we had a grand time with our loved ones. 

Obi didn't make it through the whole hay ride. He did see Santa drive by in a red truck though!

Uncle Troy and Baby Saje.

Tough guys in their Batman Jammies!

All Nana wanted for Christmas was..... Hyrum?

I went in to take a picture of the boys sleeping on the kitchen floor and I noticed that poor Troy was sleeping sitting up! It took hours to get the kids to sleep. We had Papa tell them a Hubba and Bubba story, but it went on for hours.... and then we found out that it was scary! I guess there is something to that Christmas song with the lyrics "We'll tell scary stories....." and something. I think it's the one that goes "It's the most wonderful time of the year". Anyways, I don't think Troy slept so well.

Even though it looks like Hyrum is asleep in this picture, he was NOT! He was up crying most of the night. He does not do well out of his own bed, especially when Mommy is so close. He can smell me! *sigh* Everyone will sleep better in their own beds tonight, but it was still great!

Santa ate all his snacks!

Amazing Christmas Dinner! I think I ate a while bowl full of sweet potatoes!

Utah Trip/Kayla's Wedding

This piture was taken in Montana. It was so ridiculously beautiful and SO COLD!
We made it to Grandma's house (barely)! We had some car trouble and had to get towed. Luckily we have AMA (which is like AAA). The tow truck was only aloud to tow us a certain amount of miles before he started charging us, it turns out that Mom's house was exactly two miles under the "charging point". We felt so blessed to break down where we did. John Caple was amazing and helped Bill fix the van, although it took a looooooooong time!

Uncle Richard took us to a mall to look at the amazing Christmas lights!

This was taken at Kayla's reception.

At the Mount Timpanogas Temple.

Bill's beautiful mother and sisters.

We took the Polar Express with Clint and April Knapp. It was pretty cool, BUT.....

...Obi cried for at least half of the way there. He was almost better and then they gave him the "wrong cookie". I think this adorable little boy has a slight case of OCD. In the end he was okay with the hot chocolate and the cool visit from Santa who gave all of the kids a bell.

I am a Runner!

Cheyanne and I attended a running class, taugh by my friend Rebecca a couple of months back. Cayleen Blackmore was in the class too, so we decided to start running together every morning at 6am. It has been going very well, and our hubby's have even started running too! The coldest temperature we have run in was -28 Degrees Celcius. We decided that we would never run when it was that cold again. Our eyelashes were frozen and our scarves were covered in frost. It has been cold, but it has been so worth it. So rewarding. *sigh* I love running!

Ward Christmas Party

Tonight was our Ward Christmas Party. We sang! We ate! We played! We saw Santa! It was such a beautiful party. We felt the Spirit and we were touched by the beautiful songs of the Primary. Isn't Hyrum's Christmas sweater adorable?
