The lights at temple square, they are much prettier in person.










She got some new hats and a new bear from Montana friends, do you think she likes it?




Making gingerbread houses

Talk about concentrating...so serious!



They had just played in the snow and this reminded me of a Campbell's soup commercial, MMM, MMM GOOD. Grilled cheese and tomato soup...

Christmas Eve, the annual tradition of new pajamas, gotta model them.


I don't know what was so funny, but don't you love it when your kids laugh!

Hmmmm, Daddy is a little too excited about this tradition...every year we put the kids in bed, and on an unexpected night we wake the kids up and take them to look at Christmas lights around town and sing Christmas songs in the van with some hot chocolate. It was so much fun this year, they really loved it!





We got our white Christmas, that's for sure!




Christmas dinner with the cousins

Does anyone else's house look like this on Christmas morning? I just want to point out that about 90% of the gifts the kids got this year were donated, many of the anonomously. Amazing. I have no words.

Taylor's Christmas Eve PJ modeling, it's out of order :)


Sledding fun, Taylor, Brinley, and cousin Ashley

All by herself, she was psycho about it! David had to walk up the hill like 20 times in a row so she could keep going down by herself! So fun.





Our first stuck in the snow incident, Alissa was the lucky driver.







Taylor's stitches, this one's for you Dad. Matt's right, I didn't get the gaping open wound, but at least I remembered to take a picture at all, I'm learning! It looks much better stitched up, I'll tell you that much.

I love all your pictures. I think Taylor looks so much like you Kristin in that 3rd picture! All of your girls are beautiful. Looks like you guys had a good Christmas! There's nothing better than grilled cheese and tomato soup on a cold day:)

Did Taylor get confused thinking that it was Halloween instead of Christmas?

Happy New Year to the Torres Crew -
I hope and pray that the New Year brings you nothing but good health and happiness. Taylor, it looks like your knee is healing nicely. I want you and Jade to know how thankful I am that you are both great big sisters for Brinley, as well as big helpers for Mommy. It sounds like your Christmas was a blessed one and that you had a very good time in the snow. I'm glad to see that Brinley received and enjoys her new hats and the bear. Please keep the pictures coming. Both the pictures and the posts are such a blessing to those of us that can't be there with you in person. Please know that your entire family remains in our prayers.

Love and Prayers - Peggy & Harry Purvis and the clan in Montana
