What can you say about January, honestly the worst month of the year. This year it rained nonstop in January, which was amazing because of how badly we needed the rain, but hard too because we are so used to being able to play outside. And to top it all off we had three weeks for Christmas Break and most of it fell after Christmas. So that was really fun trying to figure out what to do with the kids until January 11 in the rain. Luckily we made it through and it even wasn't as bad as I was worried it would be. We didn't actually do anything super exciting but we still had fun being together.

My friend Amy took these amazing pictures of Jane for her baptism. It was so fun to go with Janie and take them. She is such a sweet girl and it was so fun to watch her get her pictures taken. She was so excited to be baptized and she was so excited to have her new dress. I helped her pick out and design what she wanted. She was so excited about it and I think it turned out really good. It was hard to pick just a few of the pictures of Jane because they were all so beautiful! It ended up being perfect too because we had had so much rain I was so worried that there wouldn't be a day for us to get the pictures done but there ended up being the perfect day to do it, even if the ground was really wet!

I don't know why but decorating the tree and getting out the Christmas decorations is one of my favorite things to do. I think its because there is just so much excitement about the upcoming holiday season and everything that comes along with it. I love to see the excitement and magic that the kids have this time of year.
We also went to the Ward Christmas Breakfast. I decided to finally wear pajamas this year because I never do and all the adults are wearing them as well and wouldn't you know this year most didn't. Hah, just my luck!
We have started a few new traditions over the year that probably most people think are silly but the kids have absolutely loved. A few years ago we started opening a present the day before Christmas Eve, now known as Christmas Adam, since Adam came before Eve, haha. Well this year we started another tradition that ended up being the kids favorite thing we did this year. The night before Christmas Adam we let the kids open their new Christmas pajamas and then I made them each a little treat bag and we made hot chocolate in paper cups we could take with us and then we drove around town looking at all the cool lights in our jammies. It was the best time! For sure a new tradition for us! This was one of our favorite houses, it was really fun!
