New years was great as always. we had the usual Anderson Party at the Brown's and totally enjoyed ourselves. Great food, Games, company, music and whatever else you can think of. it didn't go without noise, wow you should have heard the noise. the kids loved every minute of it.. a great way to end 2011!
and a Merry Christmas it was! I loved having it on Sunday this year and thought it was so great to help us all stay focused on our Savior and the real reason we celebrate. The kids were able to see what Santa brought them before church but we didn't open any gifts until after. Our Sacrament program was amazing!! We came home and had a little family lesson about the spirit that was felt at church. Then the kids had fun opening gifts. We hung out here playing games with each other then headed over to my parents for christmas dinner and fun with the cousins. We spent christmas eve with the Shupe's where we had an awesome breakfast and dinner and decorated the gingerbread house and read the christmas story. I love Christmas, i love the spirit that you feel all season long and how you feel so at peace after it is over and ready to start fresh for a new year! Merry Christmas everyone!
