Forever grateful & Christmas

I am so Grateful for the Christmas spirit that surrounded us this year. As many of you know Scott has not had work for about 2 months now. I was worried how we would even buy diapers for the baby.It is a good thing Danielle did all the Christmas shopping 6 months ago or there would have been none. I know there are many that do not have Christmas gifts. I am grateful I was able to give my family Gifts this year.
We were so blessed to have the ward bring us food and some things we really needed. Plus I received anonymus gifts of money cards. I am overwhelmed with a thankful heart for the kindness and generosity people have shown us this Holiday season. I have been brought to tears that I have not needed to worry yet. I was able to use the gift cards for diapers and necessities.
Scott has applied for several jobs with Provo city. I prey he gets one until the construction business picks up.
Thank you to all who have helped my family this holiday season. We love you!


My family has a tradition where my dad takes everyone to a Christmas eve movie. This year we saw Beverly Hills Chiwawa. It was Cute. Then we headed over to my parents for our traditional Christmas eve snacking and opening each others gifts. Then it was off home for our family traditions as seen below.

Crews First Christmas

The girls were so excited to get gifts from Santa. Everyone had fun playing the new game system even Scott. Crew watched everyone play.

Your Christmas pictures are so cute. Shopping 6 months ahead was definitely a great idea! I'm glad that things are working out for you and hope that things will look up soon! Happy new year!
