Never a dull moment

We have been so busy with all the activities that go along with Christmastime that I haven't had a chance to update my blog. We have had a lot of visitors, holiday parties, and other year-end activities. My only complaint is that I don't have time to do everything San Diego has to offer. Here is a look at a few things we have been up to.We decided to go with a real tree from a farm. (Thanks to all who voted.) It was a fun experience to get all bundled up to go pick out our tree. It was about 50 degrees- brrrr!

Looks like Mitchell found the perfect tree. I have decided that I really like having a real tree. I think the one we got is gorgeous and it smells great too. I think we will stick with real trees, at least for now. It is somehow refreshing!

December in San Diego. It has actually gotten quite chilly in the evenings, but afternoons are still warm. Yes, warm enough for swimming suits.

We enjoyed a visit from our Orange County cousins and we went to see the lights at the San Diego temple. From left to right: Hillary, Owen, Lilly, Madison, Mitchell, and Angie.

Madison and Lilly really loved the life-size Nativity on the San Diego Temple grounds.

Go Cougars!

We went as a family to see the BYU Cougars play football against San Diego State. It was a fun game. I think there were more Cougar fans than Aztec fans. BYU won, I don't think it was much of a contest. You can't see very well, but all of us are wearing BYU attire. Rah rah rah rah rah Gooooooo Cougars!

I thought Madison looked adorable with all of her accesories. She is really into clips, jewelry, head bands (obviously), curling her hair and other girly things. Also, it was quite a feat that she is wearing jeans in this picture. I can't remember the last time she wore pants before this time. She usually only wears dresses and skirts.
