Christmas Eve 2014

Christmas Eve

We woke up and got ready for the day. Jordan and I made homemade pesto Lasagna. It was fun and smelled amazing! After  We decided to drive up to the Temple and show Dax where Mommy and Daddy got married! It was really cloudy but not that cold. Uncle Jordan and Stephen came with us too. We walked up to the gates and I remember thinking wow this was only 3 1/2 years ago? It seemed like yesterday. Dax went straight for the doors. The Temple was closed due to the holiday but I would love to go back and take Dax to the Vistors Center. Dax loved the Natitvy Scene . With Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus the Three Wiseman and the Donkey. He kept saying Neigh and waving to Mary and Joseph it was adorable. John took some great pictures of the Temple and we walked the grounds a little more and took a few family pictures and left. After we left the temple we drove back to my parents and started cleaning the house for the Christmas Eve dinner. We had a Traditional Italian dinner Homemade lasagna salad and garlic bread super yummy! Along with meatballs and sausage. We all hung out and talked. We also celebrate Jordan and Jaclyn birthday.  We had a carrot cake for Jordan and a funfetti cake both we're delicious! After Dax opened his adorable reindeer Christmas jammies he got from Target. We took pics and went to bed it was after 11 & we were so tired! Fun Christmas eve!
