Who wants to see Jesus?

I have a nativity I got in Jerusalem it is hand carved and made of olive wood, and since I have collected nativities for the past 15 years or so I have quite a few!  I can also say that this one is by far my favorite, and the kids are told to NOT TOUCH it!  I set it out and kept finding it all wonky everyday... finally one day I saw Preston and Violet re-arranging the nativity.  I ask them why and Violet said "Mommy everyone wants to see Jesus."  I thought that was such a sweet thing to say and to think, that I left it for the rest of the season.  From the mouth of a 2 year old came a very profound thought!

Off to see the Christmas lights!

To keep with tradition we took the kids to see the lights!  We had dessert with cousins and then drove through the lights with the kids yelling things about each one!  It is always so fun to see their excitement over seeing Christmas lights!
Pressy of course has to drive!

The girls and Violet saying *cheese!!*

The girls favorite!

Preston's favorite (he thinks the wizard's live there and you can get *magical* powder from them...  don't ask he really has an imagination!)

Mo-Tab Christmas concert!

Even though my MIL is officially retired from the choir she still has *connections* and snagged us some tickets to the annual concert!  The prophet attended the night we went and it was so neat to see him come in and wave to everyone!  It was such a wonderful concert and Dorothy was thrilled that she is finally old enough to go!
Beautiful Temple Square!

Being silly with cousins!

Disney Day 3!!

Our last day the weather was perfect!  Right as we entered the park Alice came over and grabbed Dorothy and Sareya and had them join her in a little dance!
In front of the HUGE tree!

Walking into the park!

Some of the cute park decorations!

Toon town!

In front of the castle!

Mid-day churro break!  We had to get one everyday, which was a small fortune but sooo worth it!

The darling Christmas parade!

Santa was there!

Teacup's again?  Heck yeah!


Right outside the Alice in Wonderland ride (my other favorite!)

We ate dinner in *New Orleans* and for dessert we had to try the Mickey bengiets!

While leaving the park it was *snowing* and they played White Christmas!  It was so magical and beautiful!  I can't wait to go back again next year (or the year after as the case may be!)

After our walk back to the hotel the kids were beat!  I snapped this picture in the hotel lobby!
