Pre Christmas Fun

As always, our trip to Utah was packed with fun things to do.  We loved our dinner, talent show and Nativity at Grandma and Grandpa Banks house. The masks were hilarious and we said this was the easiest year ever to get a cute pic.  It didn’t matter if they were smiling or looking :) The kids were so cute and they all loved their present from their grandparents.   
I got to hang out with my Hawaii girls at Jessica’s house in SLC one Sunday evening.  It was so much fun and we chatted for hours.  I don’t think any of us wanted to leave.  What a blessing these ladies have been in my life. IMG_0694
Instead of a gift this year, Grandma and Grandpa Cornell got the kids tickets to the Polar Express in Heber.  It was a surprise, so Grandma gathered all the kids and read them the Polar Express book.  She then gave them each a bell and told them to get ready for their own ride on the Polar Express.  They were enchanted! 
The train ride was really cute.  We sang carols, ate cookies, and drank hot chocolate.  We were all singing “Let it Go” from Frozen, and Jack got the mic.  He belted out the words and didn’t miss a beat.  The entire train cheered for him when he was finished.  Poor little Josh wasn’t feeling great and he just laid in Rusty’s lap the whole time.  We were treated to a visit from Santa and a look at the North Pole workshops.  What a fun time we had!

This picture is not a reflection of our feelings about the Polar Express.  It is a reflection of the late night and sugar crash the kids are coming off of :)
