Keat about to sink a 20 footer...haha, he loves this basketball hoop though!
Before heading to my parents, we opened up the gifts that Santa brought for the kids at our house. Keat was pretty bossy and we were worried that he was getting TOO into the present idea, luckily he mellowed out and we enjoyed the rest of the day.
Here is the scene the night before...boy is that room in need of some organizing!
Christmas Eve is ALWAYS spent at the Becker's...it's tradition! It's always fun to get the gang together and this year was extra special because Nick was home to enjoy all the fun! We even had a special visit from the MAN himself! Keat, as usual, we SO excited...and Santa told him he had been EXTRA good this year!
Here is Lilee not too sure about this guy...and Keat was happy as a clam!

Here is Uncle Justin and Uncle Nick with ALL their nephews and their niece! This was the best we could do!
Nick brought back these great jerseys from Argentina, so we decided to sport them on Christmas Eve...mainly because I was a slacker and didn't manage the Christmas PJ's this year...time just got away from me!
Also, I should note that this is where I spent most of the evening...on this chair...because I had JUST had my cerclage placed the day before...Merry Christmas to ME!! The procedure went great, except for the MAJOR bruising from the MULTIPLE IV attempts. Here's praying the stitch holds and we have no complications!!
The Sunday before Christmas we got together with my aunt Vicki and uncle Jerry at their home in Cave Creek. Vicki did an amazing job with dinner and we all had a great time with the gift exchange!!
Here is Lilee playing with her new aquadoodle...she LOVES this thing...it's so amazing the toys they have these days!!
Uncle Jerry with the Little Miss!
Here we are all dressed up and ready for church!
Not trying to brag or anything, but do I have the most BEAUTIFUL looking family or what?!
Awwwww, my kiddos just melt my heart!! They are the very best of friends and I'm so grateful for the tiny spirits Heavenly Father has given to me...what a blessing!
My new calling in the ward is as the co-activities day chair. The Ward Christmas party is ALWAYS a big event and this year was no exception. We had a great time and everything turned out wonderful! Here is Santa visiting all the good little boys and girls...Lilee is STARTING to warm up to the idea of this big guy...and Keat was THRILLED about the Candy Canes!
Back in AUGUST we bought tickets for the Polar Express in Williams! A week before Christmas was the big day and Keat was practically peeing himself with excitement! Unfortunately, my parents decided not to make the drive since Flagstaff was getting DUMPED on with snow. Thanks to Nick and Tyne for joining us and helping maintain the chillin's!
Here is our FREEZING COLD little family after the train ride...we just wanted to get outta there it was like 11 degrees or something...brrrrrrrrr!
Have you ever seen a sweeter picture than this?! This kid was IN LOVE...the whole movie just became real for him and it was such a special experience!
Our bundled up little family!
So, I'm not sure how all these pictures are gonna post, but just excuse the mess this once...Now onto January...just in time for February!! Updates on the baby and the big gender ultrasound to come soon!!:)
