It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

playing in Bass Pro Shops

excited to have mimi and papa here!

Papa bowling away

Happy to be bowling :)

Go Crewbug!!

Crew teaching Navy the ropes of bowling...

Crew recited his school Christmas poem for everyone after Santa left

Santa left his goodies for all the nice Dannels kids...

This Christmas was extra special to us because we got to have Mimi & Papa in Arizona at our house all to ourselves! We had so much non stop fun with them!

We went to Bass Pro Shops to get a picture of the kids with Santa but not knowing you had to make a reservation we were turned away. So we spent about an hour just looking around the store and checking out all the animals and fish. Next year I know to make a reservation before we drive over there...

We also went bowling at FlipSide. My Dad was thrilled to bowl with the boys. ;) We all had such a fun time and were all terrible in our bowling game that day.

Christmas Eve a few of my friends told me about a Santa that would come by on Christmas Eve for only $25. So I booked him a few weeks ago not knowing how he'd be or what he'd look like. I'm not going to lie, he was a little creepy but the kids loved seeing him and sitting on his lap to tell him what they want for Christmas.

Championship Football Games

Hudson with his"runner up" trophy

Crew & his buddy Noah

It was a great season!!

So proud of my little Champion!
We celebrated the boys great season at Joe's BBQ

Coach Smiths' giving Hudson his trophy  
The boys happened to have both of their teams in the Championship Football game. I look forward to Saturdays all week because I just love watching both Crew and Hudson grow. They both just really get football and it seems to come easy to them. I'm sure Wyatt practicing almost everyday at the park had something to do with them playing so well too.

Hudson's team ended up loosing their championship game and Crew's team ended up winning. They both got trophys so they were beyond thrilled!

Nana & Papa even came to watch Hud!

Hudson's teacher Miss Becky always puts on the cutest little programs with her preschool children. The Christmas program was adorable and Hudson loved singing all the songs. He knew every single word to every single song.

Maplewood Ward Christmas Party

The Maplewood Ward put on such a different Christmas party which we loved. It was out in the field next to our church building and we all sat on hay bales and watch a short movie about Christ while we ate popcorn and cookies. After the movie there was a snow hill for the kids to sled down and play in. They loved it!!
