Christmas is here!

My most favorite time of the year is here!

Here comes Santa Claus!

And after several pictures like this. . .

and this . . .

Lily got a decent Christmas picture for us. The kids finally cooperated after they got the point that we were just going to do take after take until they stopped goofing around.
Thanks for your patience Lily!

Things the Mitchell's do at Christmas
-Visit Temple Square
-Watch the First Presidency Christmas Message together
-Read all of our Christmas books
-Buy a new ornament for each child to add to their personal collections
they will take when they leave home.
-Watch at least 2 versions of "A Christmas Carol" and go see the play if it is in our area.
-Watch "A Christmas Story," and "Miracle on 34th Street."
-Bake and sew and bake and sew...
-Attempt to get a family Christmas picture (not always successful)
-buy more Christmas music to add to our collection.
This year I'm getting Susan Boyle, Josh Groban, Michael Buble, and Jackie Evancho.
For the record my very favorite Christmas singer is Nat King Cole.
Love, love, love him.
-Do a big Christmas puzzle.
-spend all our FHE's the month of December based on Christ's birth and life.
Next week we have tickets go to the BYU museum of art to see the Carl Bloch exhibit.
It was 9 years in the planning and a once in a lifetime experience--I'm so excited!

I love that your girls are smiling and beautiful in every picture. It has to be a boy thing to not be able to take a serious picture the first 10 times!!! I love Christmas traditions, and I LOVE the movies you named, I watch those every year too!
