Christmas in Heber

Posted on 8:16 AM by Trimblog

On Christmas Eve, we headed to Heber to spend time with Jeff's family....his parent's rented a house for the week...such a fun place to spend Christmas....the house was great with plenty of room for everyone and plenty to do....the kids were as excited to spend time at the "cabin" with their cousins as they were for Christmas.


Here are the kids in their Christmas Eve p.j.'s....let the long wait till morning begin...they were all so excited and had a hard time settling down...


They watched Toy Story in their new sleeping bags and finally fell asleep around 11:00.  Made for a late night for Santa, but I love that we get to be Santa.  It was hard for me to go to sleep that night....after we had put all the gifts out, I was so excited for the kids to open their gifts....


Up at 7:30 waiting on the stairs to see what Santa brought...


Jaxon got the two things he asked for....a DS...loved how his eyes lit up when he opened it...


And the fire station that sprays real water...


Claire knew which present was the pet stroller she had asked for and opened it first...I thought she might lose interest in the rest of her gifts once she had opened the pet stroller, but this year she opened all of them...





The two twinners playing their DS's and having so much fun...


Claire with her pet stroller...she kept saying she wanted to go home and see Toby...what she really meant was that she wanted to put Toby in her pet stroller...she was disappointed when we got home and Toby was just a little too big for it.  


Claire also got a CD player with microphones and some fun music to go with it....she's had fun singing along to her favorite songs....


On Christmas Day, we went to my grandparent's for a dinner with my family.  It was nice to have my whole family together for the holidays....

We went back to Heber that night and stayed through Tuesday.  We went tubing(post to follow), ate at Tony's tacos, played games and watched movies.  On Tuesday, we drove to Orem...went to the Old Spaghetti Factory and saw Tangled.  Such a great movie that we all enjoyed...it ranks up there in my top 3 or 4 best princess movies.   It was a wonderful Christmas with great memories and lots of fun times!

  1. What a fun Christmas! I also enjoyed Tangled and dragged my six year old boy to see it with me. It has enough adventure in it for boys, which I like, so he had a good time.
