Merry Christmas 2016!

Christmas 2016 was certainly merry. We did all our usual traditions and were spoiled rotten with some amazing gifts.

Caleb got his first--and main gift from us--on Christmas Eve.  We had to wake him up so he could open his ticket to the Seahawks game later that day.

Jon and Caleb rode the train into Seattle to add their voices to the rest of the 12s.

The final score of Cardinals 34-Seahawks 31was a definite disappointment, but Caleb assured me that he still enjoyed being able to be there.

That evening we did all the regular things; opened Christmas pajamas, ate our usual foods, did our nativity program and watched The Little Drummer Boy.

Santa got all the stockings stuffed.

Since Christmas was on a Sunday, we went to a beautiful, music-filled, tri-ward sacrament meeting and then came home for Christmas brunch and presents!

Caleb got the complete set of Psych.  Since he can identify any episode from all 8 seasons and quote lines from every episode as well, I think it's safe to say he's a fan. Here he is showing is best Shawn Spencer impression:

He also opened a bottle of Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce that had instructions to go pick up a full rack of ribs that his former YM president had been smoking for him all day. A perfect gift for this carnivore.

I did a 12 Days of Christmas set of gifts for my parents. Each bag had gifts coordinating with that number.

So many presents!

Alyssa was thrilled with her new Kate Spade purse:

Natalie loved her unicorn onesie...

...but her new hoverboard was perhaps the Christmas present of her dreams. Jon went to great lengths to fool her into believing it wasn't going to happen.  The surprise was spectacular.

Jon got me a new Apple watch that I couldn't have imagined loving as much as I do.

So many fun gifts, so many fun memories.

Merry Christmas!
