Family Christmas Party

Yesterday was my family Christmas party at my parents' house in Tremonton. Mom and Dad just built on a new room so we had lots of space to party and be together. We ate some delicious food . . .

Here is Travis making authentic Argentine empanadas. This may be a new Christmas tradition!

Shayla, Liz and Tara had fun making cute Christmas ornaments
We always have an awesome program. Baylee performed for the first time with a number on the recorder. She played Jingle Bells and we all sang along.

Shayla and Liz performed a cute dance routine. Wade and Travis helped out at the end.

Tara and Kelsey entertained us with their version of "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas"

My parents surprised us with a wonderful skit performed by Santa and Rudolph. Doesn't my mom make a cute reindeer?

Baylee sat on Santa's lap for the first time, although she needed Elise, her new best friend, there for moral support!
It was such a fun party. Thanks Mom and Dad!
Just a footnote: Val and I were actually at the party, it's just that we were taking pictures and videotaping so there are no pictures of us!
