Olivia turns 5

Olivia seeing her bike on her birthday for the first time.

1st Christmas Present

Gracie opened her first Christmas Present. Aunt Amy sent her a Christmas Dress so it needed to be opened before Christmas.

It is such a darling little dress.

Raking Leaves

This is Olivia and Mason helping Daddy rake the leaves. They sure had a lot of fun jumping in all of the big piles. I think when they were finished there was something like 15 bags of leaves.

Every year we always go to the Jubliee of Trees in St. George on Monday night for Family Night. We always get to Santa and the kids get their picture taken with him. This year they decided to have free admission after 6pm on Monday night. There were so many people there you couldn't even walk around to enjoy all the trees. We did get the picture with Santa ate a homemade caramel apple "yum yum", and the kids got to see the Life Flight Helicopter.
Every year the Jubliee of Trees raises money for the Dixie Regional Medical Center. This year it was to raise money for DRMC to have their own Life Flight Helicopter. It was pretty neat to see one up close. I was really surprised how small the inside of one of those helicopters are.
Next year if they do free admission on family night we will have to change our visit to another night. Admission is only $3 for adults and $1 for kids 3 and older so it's not like it costs a lot of money to go. After all 100% of the proceeds goes for a worthy cost.
