Clara did really well opening gifts this year! She loved taking the paper off and playing with the bows.
Thanks to my wonderful brother-in-law, Pat, I was able to make stockings for us this year! I had so much fun learning from a wonderful teacher & seamstress. They turned out great!


We were so blessed to be able to read & act the Christmas Story with Geoff & Kate's family on Christmas Eve. We are so grateful for our Savior Jesus Christ, His perfect life and infinite Atonement. We love the Christmas Season when we can be reminded of how we should live by studying Christ's life and the example He set for us.
For the second year, we visited Santa Claus at Chick-Fil-A. We love being able to see Santa without waiting in a crazy line. Chick-Fil-A is the best place for meeting Santa. Clara was a little nervous, but ended up doing just fine seeing and sitting on Santa's lap.
We have had an exceptionally snowy winter season. It's been fun to play in and beautiful to see. We love the snow!

More signing video

Here is another video of Clara doing some of the signs she knows. We can't wait for her to teach them to her little sister!
