This was the first sledding trip of 2009. Okay, well...it wasn't really a trip. And its kind of a stretch to call it sledding when you consider the fact that its in our yard which has a very small hill to the neighbors yard. The girls had a great time! And Evan and Kenzi were pretty into it too. The sun had already gone down but we couldn't resist the opportunity to take advantage of the snow. The girls have already played outside quite a few times this year. Its so nice that they can get themselves dressed in their snow clothes. I have fond memories of last years 20 minute prep time for 5 minutes outside. Kenzi and Rylie Saige Evan and Saige & Kenzi and Rylie Evan, Rylie, and Saige Rylie Saige Daddy and his girls! Dylann was napping.
In the past we've gone to temple square to walk around and see the lights. This year we decided to reserve a trolley at Thanksgiving Point to see their lights. This was a much better option this year since we have 3 little ones that wouldn't handle the cold weather very well. We had a great time enjoying the lights and going to JCW for ice cream afterward. Thanks Grandma & Papa Ehat. Kenzi - I love how we got the lighted sign perfectly in the background. Dylann and Julie
Each year we decorate a gingerbread house as a family. This year was fun since the girls are now old enough to have definite ideas of how the house should look. We decided that since we have a few helpers we would decorate each piece separately and then assemble the house. It was a lot of fun and always makes for some great memories. Even Dylann wanted a piece of the house Daddy and Saige decorating one side of the roof Kenzi and Rylie working on the other side of the roof Daddy and his girls Mom, Saige, & Rylie
Saige with her favorite teacher...Auntie Amy! Saige was front and center in her Christmas program...I thought I had the best seat in the house until Mrs. Rawlings took her place right in front of the kids to lead them. Oops.
Saige did a great job in preschool this year! She loves to go and learn new songs! She is so lucky to have such a great teacher...thanks Auntie Amy!!!
Each year we have a fun tradition with the Ehat fam of making candybar trains...here are this years creations. Saige made two. One while we were all doing them and then another after Rylie went skiing with Evan (pics of that to come.) Rylie made one and Kenzi made one too but she ate hers before I was able to take pics. Enjoy!Saige's train #1 Saige's train #2- with some help from Grandma Rylie's train...She did a great job and did it all herself.
