December fun

December is always a busy, but fun filled month. This year, because of our Disney trip, we missed out on the church activities. I heard great things about the ward Christmas breakfast that Wendy planned and the Relief Society Christmas activity that Marilyn organized. There were plenty of other festivities to enjoy thanks to the kids' schools though.

I went caroling with Jackson and his preschool class. We walked to local businesses and caroled for the employees and the customers. He was so proud of himself and had so much fun!
The 3rd graders at Kobe's school sang a few international Christmas songs at the holiday concert. The kids were asked to dress in some sort of attire from a foreign land. Kobe chose Hawaii. He LOVES a chance to wear his surfing themed shirt under his Hawaiian shirt. He knows he looks good! They sounded really good too and he looked like he was having a great time.

The girls had multiple concerts... all excellent. Here's a sampling.

Reagan: (white shirt bottom row)

Jillie: (black shirt, pony tail)

The Sunday before Christmas means the first gifts of Christmas. New outfits for church. :)

This year we got Kobe his first suit. I think he likes it. He doesn't love it, but I think he likes it. Had to get a father son picture! (Kobe was actually not feeling well so I stayed home from church with him. I made him put the suit on for pictures when everyone got home though!)
Everyone in their new holiday attire

Reagan all in gold from the headband to the shoes.
Jillie in a cute Banana Republic outfit that I wished fit me. (She's kind of swimming in this size 2. Guess she's still a zero! What's up with that? I was never a size zero, or a 2 for that matter!)
Jackson is calling this corduroy sports coat his "Michael Jackson jacket". What ever gets him to wear it!Jackson wanted a "Boys are Back" pose for his brothers picture. He likes it when he and Kobe recreate the pose from the High School Musical 3 movie.
I think they are quite cute. :)

Beautiful kids! I want to borrow Jillie's outfit. And Reagan's -though I know hers won't fit, I love the dress.

You sure have a beautiful family!
