Well here in Utah we have certainly welcomed the snow and COLD! Okay, well maybe I didn't exactly WELCOME it, but it came anyway. Last winter it barely snowed at all and never even got too cold, but this winter is a doozy! We've had a few big snowstorms and for the past week if it gets over 10 degrees it's warm! The boys have had a blast playing the snow, and luckily I can still use Joey as an excuse to not go outside. I still have to help the boys with their snowclothes.....ugh. But it is worth it when they show me their cool snow forts and stuff.Eric and some other guys (Tyler and Jake included) went pheasant hunting a few weeks ago. They had a really good time, the boys thought it was very cool. I really liked this pic.
Tyler has been working very hard learning guitar. He is getting really good and played us all some Christmas carols. He's been saving up for an electric guitar! Yeah right, like I want one of THOSE around the house!
We spent Christmas eve at Grandma Swenson's house. The kids all got matching pj's to wear, as per tradition. It was chaotic but that was mostly because of my kids.
Christmas morning was great. The kids were so excited and Santa did indeed come! I knew he would, my kids are pretty darn great. Jacob got an electric scooter!
Maggie got tons and tons and tons of girly stuff! Crafts, jewelry, Barbies, dress up, you name it. She was in girl heaven.
And holy cow, look what Santa brought Tyler! Well, I guess I can put up with the noise just because of the sheer look of joy on Tyler's face. And I have to admit, it does sound pretty cool when he plays "Sweet Home Alabama."
All in all a great Christmas season. I am sad/glad it is over, now we enter the doldrums of winter. But all is well in the Swenson house so I will go to bed grateful tonight.
