Just Hanging out with her daddy.
Notice there are no ornaments at the bottom of the tree.....Sadie has taken care of them all. We had to rearrange our living room to fit the Christmas tree but it was worth it. Since we've put it up it really feels like Christmas.
Crawling to mama
"I know I shouldn't bend this but it's ever so much fun to stand by myself and play with a 'no, no' item!"
Just bending the candyland cards....not a big deal (We just won't tell Chase) What could be cuter than a one year old in a gingerbread dress?
Ward Christmas Party. This was the BEST Santa ever! The beard?....yep, sure is real. And his suit?....only Mrs. Claus could have designed such a thing. Sadie couldn't have been happier....but not as happy as these two.................
Marriner calls him "Danta" "Danta tumming to ah house?"

Having the time of his life. It was perfect snow for snow angels, and just falling in to.

I guess girls can wear blue hats but boys probably can't pull off a pink ones!

Merry Christmas!!

I can't believe how much your kids have grown since I last saw them. I think Sadie is looking more like Brock. I looks like you have a lot of snow there, we had some but now it is al melted. We are hoping for some more to make it a white Christmas!! We hope all of you are healthy and doing well. We wish you a Merry Christmas too!!

yay! you updated...Sadie is so darn cute. I can't for her and Hattie to play with eachother and hold their dollies and rock them...hattie loves giving loves to her baby dolls, or bears or whatever. WE got your christmas card, you did such a good job Brooke! Your house looks so cute from the few pics i saw. we can't wait to see you guys in less than a week!

LOVE the update, Brooke. Your kids are darling! I love Marriner's face on Santa's lap....."i can't believe it's really Santa". He and Chase are the perfect age to get excited about Christmas and Santa. Jaida's not quite there yet. So fun! Loved your Christmas letter and pictures. You have such an amazing little family, and i can't wait to see you in a few days!
P.S. Your tree looks awesome!

Hey Brooksie!
I love all the snow!! I don't miss the icy roads, but I do miss playing in the snow! Sadie is so grown up and her pony is so cute...more hair and fun ways coming your way. I love you so much and I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas. Tell your kids we love and miss them so much.

I loved all the of the cute pictures. Marriner's face on Santa's lap is so hilarious. That is like the best picture ever.

I thought the finale was pretty good. I was a bit distracted, but I could have done without all of the musical guests. I would have preferred more dancing. I felt like the whole season was too rushed. I hope it goes back to being in the summertime. I wanted either Jakob or Ashleigh to win. Jakob truly is an amazing dancer.

I hope you are your family have the merriest of Christmases.

p.s. and I'm glad you can be a mommy princess, I mean really every mommy should be.

Oh my goodness, Brooke your kids couldn't be any cuter! I LOVE the pics of the kids with Santa...he is a good one. Abby had the feeling the one she saw wasn't the real one (skinny and his beard was up on his nose!)
They look like they're having a ball in the snow too, soooo cute...that's all I can say. I'll see you in a few days!
love you,
