Hometown Holiday Christmas at Hummel Park

Our day started with Ally going to a birthday party.  We picked her up a few minutes early to get to our fun activity for the day.
We went to this a few years ago and it was great.  Last year was a bit crazy with Brigham and I coming home from the hospital the same day this was going on, so we missed it.
We made sure to get there early, but so did LOTS of others from town.  We didn't even go in the building.  The girls wanted to ride a pony/horse.  Ben didn't want to, so he got in line with Grams to ride the train.  The girls loved it.

 Ben was hanging out with Grandpa and Grandma while we took our turn on the train.

After this we headed to Red Robin for lunch.  Then home so Matt could get to 2 stake conference meetings. Brigham opened his present from Grandpa and Grandma.  Then the kids and I drove to Blast off park.  They played hard for over an hour, then we met Tiffney and Jonah and Target.  I was hoping we'd be hungry by this point, but no one really was, so we headed home.  They were all EXHAUSTED and went to bed really easy.

Happy 1st Birthday Brigham!

Ally requested rag curls the last night and there was time to do it, so she got them.

 He loved getting sung to first thing that morning.
 I got him balloons and he wanted NOTHING to do with them.  Of course.
 He is really walking everywhere now. 
 He got a race track.  Isn't this a neat picture with the 3 cars falling to the next level?
 The big kids all were quite jealous and couldn't wait to play with the track.
 Goofy girl!

 Briggs had Hot Chocolate brownies and ice cream for his dessert.

You are such a delight and I can't believe how fast your first year went by.

Great kids

Brigham is such a great baby.  I'm hoping that doesn't mean terrible toddler years for us. 
He is so content and loves to laugh.

Should it be this hard?

On the way home from church I said to the kids "I want to get a picture of you when we get home, so don't change your clothes."  This was met with groan's and protest.  To which I said, "If you all smile really well and cooperate I will only need to take 1 picture, if you don't cooperate I will take 100."  They all quickly agreed that they would sit still and be done. 
 Fat chance of that happening!

 After stopping the wrestling match that was going on, it took another 5 minutes to get them to sit down and close enough to get them all in the same picture.

 This was the best I could get.
 Because they quickly switched gears to this:
 He is turning into quite the stud.

 Josey was photo bombing everyone and there are only a few that don't have a part of her in them.
 Ally really is a good big sister.

 And oh my cuteness!  I love this dress Josey is wearing.  It is my new favorite.
 He thought it was hilarious to walk as fast as he could towards me, as soon as I stood him next to the tree.

 He loves playing the laughing game with mommy.

 He is so stinkin cute!
