Scott and I learned this dance and performed it 2 years ago. I never posted it to the blog.
Christmas Eve Singing
We shipped all of our presents to Utah so I had a ton of presents to wrap when we got there. That kept me very busy for a good long while. All of our presents made it but one, you know the one we paid $15 in shipping, ya that's the one that didn't make it. We need to call and complain about that one! On Christmas Eve we went to the movie Big Hero Six. We all enjoyed it. That night Mandy and Carole made amazing fondue for dinner. It was kind of nuts to do with kids and it took a couple of hours by the time it was all said and done but it was very good. After that we sang Christmas songs and finished out the night with The Musical Scrooge. We didn't get to the gingerbread houses, talent show, or reading of the Christmas story.
Christmas morning we had our kids open up our presents and then we headed next door to Colie and Rustin's for breakfast. It had snowed beautiful snow in the night! That is always my Christmas wish. It was so beautiful. After breakfast we headed back over and opened presents for a few hours. The rest of the day kids played with their presents and went sledding. That night we had Janet's delicious Christmas dinner. After dinner we had a little talent show, Scott and I rein-acted famous love scenes! It was terrible! Or rather, I was terrible. Then we played a new game. Later on we played the game Spit well into the night.
On Friday Colie and Rustin took the kids to the Madagascar movie. Later in the afternoon Richard and Cat came over with their kids to sled. They lasted for hours. Their 4 and 2 year olds were little dare devils! So were Corbin and believe it or not, Gabby. Corbin sledded for about 4 hours! Nicole and Rustin's backyard has the most amazing sledding hill. The best part is it's right in the backyard. When you get tired or cold you walk in the house, It's amazing! That night we decorated gingerbread houses. Those dang things are hard to build!
Saturday was Corbin's 7th birthday! We went to the Museum of Natural History to check out the bug exhibit. The kids were loving it there and we were at the museum for 2 1/2 hours which is about 2 hours longer than I like to be in a museum. Ha. But the kids were loving it so that's all the matters. After that we went to Red Robin for birthday dinner. Corbin ordered 3 entrees and got a huge stack of on the house onion rings. After that is was back to the house for donuts and presents. Corbin made a killing. He may have a Christmas birthday but he also gets to spend his birthday with the Cannons and gets extra presents. After presents we played one of his birthday games with him before bed.
This morning we drove down to Orem to attend sweet Hannah's baby blessing. After the blessing we went and had delicious brunch. Tonight is Janet's Sunday dinner and hopefully some games. Fingers crossed.
