Christmas Highlights

Since I am home today from church with a sick baby (Cohen has been throwing up all morning), I thought that I would share some of our Christmas highlights with you.

First off, the winner of the Hawes family's Ugly Sweater award. I titled my creation "Beary Christmas":

Nixin borrowed Chad's ugly sweater to wear to school on Elf Day:

A new family member joined us this year, Terry the Elf. It was a true joy to have him in our home this holiday. We are so excited about this new tradition!

Christmas morning:

The boys were SO excited to see what Santa brought. They decided to let him surprise them this year... and boy were they surprised! Here they are just before we let them go check it out:

Cohen got a new car! He loves it and plays in it every day:

Here's Jack taking his new bike out for it's first ride:

Nixin couldn't wait to take his new electric scooter for a ride!

P.S. Where's the snow? It was certainly not a white Christmas.

Ahh, perfectly sweet.

There should be many more pictures included in this post. Some of which could be Chirstmas Eve in Bountiful with Ken and Becky, Christmas breakfast with Rob, Debbie, Luke, and his new girlfriend, Gilda, or Christmas dinner with Roxy, Will, Chris, and Laura... But, I was having too much fun and forgot to grab the camera. Oh well, they are all memories that we'll just have to hold dear in our hearts. Like I said before, it was a wonderful holiday and I wouldn't have changed a thing! Merry late Christmas!

Everything looks just perfect! I LOVE Nixin's elf day outfit. Too bad you didn't share a picture of Chad in that sweater-haha!

Looks like a good Christmas Erica! I love the pic of you in the sweater, very festive :)

I'm going to have to get one of those elves next year!
