Other Holiday Happenings

Friday Dec 21: We were so excited for Hillary to finally come home and meet Tanner! The holiday festivities begin!

Saturday Dec 22: We stopped by to visit Great Grandpa on our way to Alamo. It was great to see him and Tanner loved sitting with him.
Sunday Dec 23: Preston was being too sweet with Papa at church. Priceless.

Wednesday Dec 26th: We went with Jim, Dee and Hillary to see the coolest lights. The music and lights are programmed together. Amazing.

And I just adore these 3 boys. Luckiest girl in the whole world.

Christmas Day

After Christmas morning with the Coons' we enjoyed the rest of Christmas day with the Carter's.
Landon was so sweet to get us gifts and Preston loves this football his cousin gave him.
The whole family went in on a diploma frame for Dee since she graduated with her Bachelor's in Nursing from Grand Canyon University this year.

I love that Preston can actually unwrap his presents this year!

This is what Tanner was doing.

And Iron Man from Aunt Hilly!

I got some awesome gifts from Jim and Dee and Hillary including these boots.
And Dee scored an iPad from Jim!!
Merry Christmas!

Christmas Morning

Christmas morning at the Coons' was so fun this year. It is amazing how having a kid who is excited about presents and Santa makes Christmas even more fun. Preston asked Santa for Iron Man and knowing that Preston is obsessed with motorcycles he got Iron Man on a motorcycle!

The reindeer ate the carrots and Santa ate the cookie!
Tanner hanging out with Uncle Trev in his bed aka the couch

I absolutely love these shots of Tanner sitting between Alyssa and I

Thank you Grammie and Papa for the Nutcracker!
I've been wanting a necklace with my boys initials for quite some time and was absolutely thrilled that Aaron got me this beautiful necklace. When I opened it and saw the initials "p" and "t"  I got teary because I just feel like the luckiest girl in the world to be a mom to these two.

Christmas Eve

It is always wonderful to have Christmas Eve with the Peirce family and we were all so happy that Grandpa was able to make it since he fell and broke his shoulder and the recovery has been tough. He's looking good!
Preston was completely spoiled in the cousin exchange and got his first bike!! He is super excited about it. Thanks Uncle Jim, Aunt Kym and Spencer!

Thanks Great Grandma and Grandpa for the cute Easter church outfit!
This is how he gets around.

Gustafson Christmas

The whole Gustafson family (Dee's side) haven't been together in years so it was great for us all to be together. We had a wonderful night of eating, talking, playing the funnest Christmas game and a special devotional by Jim. It was so great to see everyone!

I couldn't pass up the opportunity to take my two boys to see Santa this year and I'm so glad I did.
They are absolutely adorable and it was so fun to watch Preston tell Santa that he wanted Iron Man for Christmas.

We only got to choose one picture so I decided to go with the one where Tanner was smiling. Preston looks a little unsure in this photo but he had huge smiles in the others. He was so happy to see Santa.

Preston was so sweet when he noticed Tanner alone in his bed. He got all his guys and a blanket and put them in with Tanner. What a good, sharing brother!
