Christmas Eve is always the best. We are lucky enough to be able to spend it with both of our families. We went to Clay's parents house first. These are a few pictures from the nativity the kids acted out. Then we went to my mom's house where it is always a blast. We went to our home afterward so Santa could come. It was a beautiful Christmas.
Clay is such a hard worker and does so much for our family I wanted to make his birthday really special this year. His birthday was on a Sunday, so we made a weekend long celebration. Saturday morning I made a birthday breakfast feast and invited some friends from the ward. We watched a few home videos honoring Clay. It was a blast. Then that night we went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner. Always a treat. Sunday morning we gave him gifts, new belts and ties. Then I surprised him at church in his primary class with a dessert tray from Kneaders full of eclairs (his favorite dessert). It was so much fun to spoil him and I wish I had more pictures from that weekend. These are just a few from the breakfast I made.
The menu was scrambled eggs, ham, Einstein bagels, cream cheese, fruit and yogurt parfaits, homemade raspberry rolls and cinnamon twists, oranges, orange juice, chocolate milk, milk, and Magelby's rolls. Delicious!
Beck has made a very good friend. These pictures were from back in October. My girlfriend had just had her second child, so we jumped at the chance to watch her first for some fun! This is Beckham and Easton at the Bean Museum at BYU. They had so much fun running around looking at all the animals.
Eva also got her very first haircut right before Beck. It was definitely time. She was recently potty trained and her hair was so long that it was close to going in the toilet when she went potty. She was so excited to get her haircut and had a smile on her face the entire time.

I had them cut off a pony tale for me to keep. You may think it's strange, but this was her baby hair.
I cried after his haircut because it made him look like such a big boy. I found myself getting more upset with him after certain things because he wasn't a baby anymore. I know it was time, especially looking back at these pictures, but he did have the most beautiful hair.
I can't believe how behind I am in the blogging world. Our life has been absolutely crazy the last few months with a move and new baby. Anyway, I am going to post a bunch of things we have been doing lately. So here is a quick catch up. Halloween was super fun this year. Eva was a "ballerina princess" and Beck was an M&M.
