It has been a cold, yet fun, month for us. We have had a lot going on this holiday season and I am glad to finally write up a post about everything!
Usually each year I throw a Hannukah party. This year I was not able to. We were moving and there was just nowhere to throw a party! I was able to keep the spirit alive by baking some delicious Hannukah treats. Okay, I might not remember what they were called but they were delish!
We got to have three different Christmas celebrations this year! Tyson and I had one for just the two of us.
We had fun opening the presents, but I won't bore you with that part! The bows were a lot of fun too.
We then had a Christmas celebration at the Crown home. I am very sad to report that I did not bring my camera that day! We all spent the night and we had Christmas morning together (even though it was the week before.)
I then spent all day and all night baking and cooking with my mom and dad. (Tyson helped too) It was really nice to be in the kitchen with my family cooking up all sorts of sweets! They didn't last long though! Kyle had his farewell the next day and those sweets were pretty popular items!
Kyle did great with his farewell talk, we are all very proud of him and his decision to serve the Lord. But I will have more on that later!
Tyson and I were able to travel up to Idaho for our Christmas break. It was really nice to have a road trip with my hubbie! The fog was very intense though! The thickest I had ever seen. This picture does not do it justice.
The break was filled with puzzles, DELICIOUS food and lots of family time. All in the holiday spirit. There were nieces and nephews to play with and we all had a lot of fun together.
Had to sit on the stairs before we could see what Santa brought!
This little man is going to be a rockstar!
Even Stan got into it!
We did get to go to the farm and see the animals. I love the little babies!
I love the rooster too.
Then it was time to celebrate Tyson's birthday! I was able to sneak to our new house before we had moved in and I decorated as a surprise. It was really fun to surprise him! He seemed to enjoy it.
For his birthday we went to dinner, and a movie. We stopped at an arcade to unleash the inner child within.
My family came to our house to celebrate Tyson's birthday and have a last family dinner before Kyle went on his mission. They bought Tyson a really great gift that he loves, and I have already had him put it to work! Thanks Crown family!
Oh yeah... WE MOVED IN!!!! We did the move on Tyson's birthday. It was cold and there was a little bit of ice on the ground but we survived. Everyone, and everything, was safe in the journey. I don't have the house all set up yet so I don't have a ton of pictures to show, but they will come soon!
