Annie got a baby and a crib for Christmas, but she did not want the baby in the crib. She kept throwing the baby out and getting in her self. Nathan was trying to help by telling her the baby goes in the crib, but this just made Annie very upset, as you can see in the photo.
Both the kids got soccer balls from Santa. That is really the only one thing Nathan asked for, and when he saw that he actually got one he was very excited. Annie got one too, because Santa knew that she would want to play with Nathan's and it would create fights. (Although you can see Annie with Nathan's in the background of one the photos).
Nathan awoke very early this morning (5:00) and came into bed with us. He fell back to sleep but once he woke up again he was ready for Christmas.
He told us he heard Santa's bells during the night and heard him say "ho, ho ho!" He wanted us to wake up Annie so we could go open presents. I didn't think he would really get the whole Santa thing this year, but he did.

For Christmas Eve, we went to a Chinese Buffet for dinner, it was lots of fun.
After that we went to the Temple so we could walk around again, but the snow was really wet and we didn't want to get soaked. Nathan had a fit that we did not get out. He kept saying "Temple,Baby Jesus!".
When we got home we popped popcorn and watched a new movie. Nathan is really excited about Santa and kept looking outside for him.

It snowed again today, so I went out and made the kids a little snowman. Nathan and Annie watched me from the window.
After awhile Nathan wanted to come out. But he still does not want to have anything to do with walking on the snow. When I said to come over next to the snowman he started screaming "No, no, no!", and almost in tears.
The picture with Nathan in it shows how close he would get to the snowman.

It has snowed all day today. The kids love looking at it out the window. After dinner I put their coats on so they could go play in it. Nathan had to wear Grandpa's gloves because I couldn't find his.
When they got outside they just kind of stood there. They didn't know what to do. I tried to tell them to go walk in it, but they wouldn't do it.

Nathan and I went hiking today on the Chukawala trail. He likes to go on this hike so we can go see "Mater". There is this really old car that was abandoned a long time ago. Nathan calls him "Mater" because he looks like Mater on Disney's Cars.
He also likes to pick up and collect bullet shells, since a lot of people go up there to shoot their guns. Today we found a lot of Luger 9mm shells. He kept hem in his pocket.
After hiking we went to McDonalds and Nathan had a Happy Meal.
