It's About Time...

In November we took a family outing to take Christmas card pictures. This is the one we decided on.

Although this was my favorite (to pose for) we decided against using it. 

This is yet another discarded attempt.

Mitchell was  a very somber shepherd on Christmas Eve.

We had a wonderful tea party on Christmas Adam (what my kids decided we should start calling the day before Christmas Eve, because Adam came before Eve you know.) After the Tea party we had a Wii party.

Lizzy was the cutest of elves at her ballet Christmas recital. And she knows how to pose for the camera. 

We enjoyed decorating the house for Christmas.

Ahhhhhh... Thanksgiving in St. George. Papa Jimbo treats us all to a 90 degree pool in November. Who could ask for more?

More swimming in St. George.

Lizzy enjoying the warm warm water. 

We spent some time traveling to the North Pole on the Polar Express to see Santa. What a nice guy to give all the kids their very own Christmas bells. 

On the way to St. George for Thanksgiving we stopped at the Grand Canyon. We have been in AZ for 3 1/2 years now and this is the first time we have visited. It was amazing!!

These two pictures are for all you poor people living in the freezing cold. The flowers are beautiful in our back yard on Christmas day. 

Christmas morning was a huge success at the Bisel household. Santa was great to everyone. The kids haven't stopped playing. True to form, Mitchell's favorite present cost a dollar and is called noise putty. We weren't really sure what it was when Lizzy picked it out for him, but how bad could it be. Turns out that when you press it into the container it came in you get a very real sounding "toot".  At least it doesn't smell.
