Christmas Festivities and Santa Came 2010

During the month of December we did some fun things.The kids had fun helping decorating the house and running around in their Christmas pajamas. There are a few picture of them Below. Payton is in this stage where she has figured out she can look at the digital pictures ,so she asks me to take a lot of pictures of her making funny faces or doing funny things and then she has to look at them. I am going to use these pictures as black mail later on in life.
We also went to ZOO LIGHTS. The zoo here decorates the zoo with a ton of lights and all sorts of neat things and animals. We had a lot of fun there. However we didn't get to see it all in one night and we were planning on going back but did not get the chance Payton was scared of all the play animals walking around so she would not get her picture taken with any of them so if you are wondering why she is not in them that is why. We will have to ride the train next year because it was decorated soo cute.
Then this year I made Special arrangements with Santa Claus to come early to our house because we didn't know if we could fit all his gifts on the plane home for Christmas. We started off the night with Payton and Mommy preparing the cookies for Santa and the carrots for the reindeer. Payton was really concerned that the reindeer would not get their carrots. I think she thought Santa would eat them. We had to tell her multiple times that Santa would give the carrots to the reindeer. In the Morning there was a lot of fun stuff from Santa and we also got to open all our presents from Grandpa and Grandma Sullivan and Grandma Dianne. The Kids got a train set that was the biggest hit of all the toys. Treyson has become fascinated with Thomas the train so he was really excited. Trey also got a little Diesel truck that goes on its own and well Payton was more interested in that than Trey. Payton got a leapster2. she is obssessed with playing with our Itouch's so Santa thought she would like this to play games on this and learn while she is doing it. They were really excited. Treyson was so cute when he opened his stocking and saw candy he took two of the pieces, one in each hand and got so excited he was almost shaking while yelling CANDY!!! He then proceeded to unwrap one as fast as he could and eat it. This Kid is in love with Chocolate. The other day When Micah was watching the kids or Supposed to be watching haha!!! he found Treyson on the counter. He had stood up on the counter and got the chocolate bowl off the top of the fridge and was unwrapping and shoveling chocolate bars in his mouth as fast as he could before he got caught. I am making bets about when our first trip to the emergency room for stitches will be for him because he is really lucky he hasn't been there yet with all of his climbing. Payton is getting so smart and was really into Santa this year it was fun to see her start to understand what was going on. We were also able to go home to Utah and Nevada to see our families which was soooo good. We love both of our families and are so blessed to have them more pictures to come from that.
