Christmas Eve 2011

Christmas Eve was a wonderful day also. We had our annual Porter Family party and we had a breakfast together. Then it was time for our annual nativity.

Madi was an angel this year. All attitude and super cute!

After the party we headed out to the Great Salt Lake. I've lived here for 10 years and I've never been out there to Antelope Island...although it was a bit cold to go in December. We had lots of fun!
Well those who know me, know I love flip flops and of course I was wearing them. Mike carried me down the hill.

It was absolutely beautiful there!
We also got to see a few bison. It was a great day and we had lots of fun together as family. Later that evening we opened our pixie gifts and had and enjoyable evening. It was a wonderful day!

Christmas 2011

Christmas was wonderful! The girls were super excited Christmas morning. They couldn't sneak because Santa had wrapped the hallway so no one could get through. The girls got to run through they were so excited although a bit tired.

We had a great time. It was fun to have church on Christmas day. We had a lovely sacrament meeting and headed home to relax and enjoy being home. We had a great day. We also got to talk to Tim on his mission he is doing so great and he looks so good. It was a lovely day!
