In December Ashlee had her first dance recital. She did so great!! I was very proud of her. I acutally have the opportunity to be her dance teacher. I was a little nervous at first, because I didn't know how well she would listen to me as her teacher instead of mom. However, she has done very well at separating the two. She even calls me teacher in class instead of mom. We have had a lot of fun together. Ashlee is actually quite the performer. I was afraid that she was going to be nervous and just stand there. But she loved it. Ashlee's entire class did such a great job. They did a tap dance to the song Jingle Bell Rock.

Well, I am a little slow in getting this posted, but here it is finally.

We had a wonderful holiday season. We were able to spend most of our time with all our family and friends. For Thanksgiving we went to Mesquite and spent the weekend with Nate's parents and Ben and Jessica's family. We had the most wonderful food! It was delicious. We were also able to get together with Nate's family the week before Christmas to celebrate Christmas with them. Alec was even able to fly in and spend some time with us.

For Christmas we were able to be with my family in Ephraim. We all had a great time. All my siblings were able to be there. The girls had a great time playing with all their cousins. We spent Christmas eve at my Grandma Andersen's house along with all my aunts, uncles, and cousins and their families. We don't get to see each other very often so it was fun to chat with them and see their growing families. As you can tell it was quite a house full!

Christmas day Santa had come, we opened presents, had a wonderful breakfast, and played with our new toys all day. We didn't get to go sledding like we had hoped, because it was SO COLD the entire weekend.
