Merry Christmas!

Our Santa Clarita version of snow…since its been a low of the 50s and high in the 80s this winter!  Held a "winter wonderland" in the Target parking lot!!

Jackson's Christmas letter to Santa: Olaf (from Frozen), new bike, magic wand and blocks!  He even signed his name to the letter all by himself!

Jacob's letter to Santa:  Magic wand, Snowcone maker, skylanders and an Olaf too.  He also wanted a Disney Infinity video game but that's not on the list….Santa got that for him and he's been enjoying it almost every day!!

Right after the perfect picture!

Gramma Elsie enjoying holding Payton


Addie LOVES Jackson!!! I think he feels the same…. =)

Enjoying our time checking out the Winter Wonderland lights!

We also had a chance to see our good friends, the McElroys!  Everyone looks so much older!  So glad we could spend a little time with them but wish it was more!!

Christmas Eve we didn't have any plans so our neighbors, the Spiekers, invited us over for breakfast and cookie decorating!  The kids enjoyed playing and jumping on the trampoline and the adults enjoyed some good conversation. Thankful to have neighbors with like interests and who love the Lord! 

Cassidy and Payton are one month apart….and it's fun to look back at the pics and see how they've grown!

Christmas Eve setting out the cookies for Santa and opening one gift.  (We did read the whole Christmas sorry of Jesus' birth but I didn't take any pics…. That's clearly most important!)

Since it's Payton's first Christmas, her big brother helped her with her stocking.  He's so sweet to her!

The Disney Infinity Game he wanted

This picture makes Jackson's head look huge and the bike tiny.  It's the angle.  =)  It's perfect for him!

Uncle Aaron and Aunt Tera got Jacob an electricity kit…Daddy is helping set it up!

Every year when I was young, my mom and dad did a scavenger hunt for either my brother or me.  We decided to carry on the tradition (since Jeremy can write clues in 10 min) because I always liked doing them…. The boys found the clues and their treasure was a huge box of block sets!

Payton's favorite pretty princess girl set. =)  

Merry Christmas love the Ames!
