Christmas was a lovely warm and white one this year. We split our time between Arizona and Utah this year. As our children get older, traveling on Christmas gets harder and harder. Hauling gifts back and forth from state to state and place to place is getting more difficult. Our children had never had a Christmas in Utah. We figured it was time becuase the days of traveling are getting done. So we opened most of our gifts here in Arizona and then drove to Utah the day before Christmas Eve. Santa visited us at Grandma & Grandpa Babbels house and guess what?... It snowed on Christmas eve. We woke to an amazing amount of snow Christmas Eve Day and it went on throughout the whole day and into Christmas Day. It was wonderful!!! Perfect weather for sledding behind the quad and finding some good hills to race down.
                           G&G Banzhaf got Tanner a bike. Woohoo!
                                                  Morning Sunshine. Merry Christmas!
                                                 And we'll have fun fun fun till Daddy takes the T-bird away
                  Great Grandma Banzhaf got Asher a marbel rollercoaster and he was in heaven.
                                    Thomas and his friends....and friends...and more friends.

                                       Eden's goodies
                                                Zach and Tanner got DS's. As if they need more distractions.
                                      Asher being funny.
