Memories starting with Lucy and then some more food:)

This is my absolute FAVORITE time of year. We get to celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. What a fantastic blessing to us as His younger brothers and sisters. We also get to spend more time with family, friends and for my family have Evan home for 2 weeks. I love it!

She wore her pigtails for about 10 minutes, and then when I laid her down the ponytails and barrettes were scattered in her crib:) I think I'm going to hold of a while longer doing cute things like this, another inch or two of hair:)
German Pancakes. You gotta try these if you haven't. DELICIOUS! My mom used to make them for our family and she would make a special fruit cocktail syrup, I was too tired to do that part. Evan LOVES these, and I forgot to bake them in a cookie sheet, so we got a TALL order of pancakes in my 9x13:)-I'll add this recipe to my food blog soon.

It took me about 2 1/2 days, but it was delicious and well worth the work and wait! My first time making an entire Mexican dinner spread. I wrote step by step(because my mom does it from off the top of her head and didn't have recipes for me) and took pictures to add to my food blog recipe book:) I should have that up towards the end of the week. We had about 12 people over, and if we would have had seating for more we could have easily fed another 12 people. Lucky us it is also going to be our Christmas Eve meal:)

Pork Green Chile Sauce
Sour Cream Enchiladas
Shredded Beef
Homemade re-fried beans
Nate's famous salsa
and Pico de Gallo

Nate, Evan and I played 3 rounds of the Office version of clue, what an awesome game!!! They both won once, and I won once by glory days:)

Merry Christmas!!!

I loved Lucy's hair in the pig tails. She remindes me of Maddi when she was younger. Except Maddi had that much hair when she was two. Also Micah ADORES German pancakes.
