It's beginning to look alot like Christmas (long overdue!)

So, I know I've been a little MIA from the blogging world for the last few months, so I have lots of catching up to do!  I wouldn't even have done this post had I not been able to hijack most of it from my cute sister-in-law.  Thanks, Carolyn! :) We had dinner at The Pie in SLC. Don't worry, my dad ordered us TWO, not just one of these ginormous pizzas.  He's crazy.  I think we took home 3-4 boxes of pizza.

After dinner, we went to This Is The Place Monument in SLC. They have something called a Candlelight Christmas--lots of little houses in the villages, live reindeer, Father Christmas, and a live Nativity.

The whole fam minus Rob and Dan. Carter is doing his 'blue steel' face.
Uncle Brad and the rugrats. He's a great uncle.
Sienna was obsessed with her cousin Carter.  She just followed him around everywhere.   He was such a trooper. He didn't seem to mind. Most of the time, anyway.  Every once in awhile he'd act annoyed and then would ask "where's Sienna?" or he would go find her.  Sienna just loved having cousins around to play with. 

Sienna going for a little "ride"

All the kids just loved the train ride.  Little Kate was making funny baby noises and Sienna was looking around everywhere, asking where the goat was.

Love Sac Love. Tommy and Carter "slept" in the basement with Uncle Brad. Let's be honest, it only lasted a few hours before the kids were up in bed with their mom and dad.


 Cute little Kate, or as Sienna likes to call her, Baby Cakes. 
Kate's first ponytail. This is a big moment for any girl!

What happens when things get too quiet around the house.
Fake Christmas Dinner with Jeff & fam, since they weren't with us for the real deal.  Of course I brought Christmas Crackers to carry on some of the English traditions I learned on the mission.

Sienna was in love with all of Kate's gifts and couldn't get enough of this cute little purse.

The whole crew at dinner at La Jolla Grove. Has anyone been to the Riverwoods since they renovated?  Super fun. It's more like the Gateway now. They have some great restaurants as well, including La Jolla Grove. It looks a little fancy schmancy, but the prices are really reasonable, the food is fabulous and the service is great! 

Mom and Dad. Good peeps.
