Yesterday Cahl's uncle Mike and his girlfriend Diana kind of surprised us by driving up from Vegas to visit! It was so awesome to see them! Today we went to the Warhawk Museum and then to lunch. It was a cool museum, and I'm sure it would take days to see and read everything there.

We had a laid back Christmas at home this year, which is my favorite kind. Christmas Eve night, the kids all put on their new jammies and we watched The Grinch with popcorn, candy and soda. When the kids went to bed that night, they all piled into Tristan's room and slept together. Then the next morning, they all woke up and woke Cahl and I up at 6 on the dot to go down and open presents. We all got a ton of great things, and everyone is happy. Then after a day of lounging around, we had my sister's family over for dinner and a few more presents. It was a great day!

This afternoon Hunter's school had their 2nd grade Christmas musical program. There are 5 second grade classes, and each class had 3 kids with speaking parts- to introduce the program and songs. Hunter got to introduce the first song! They all sang and played their instruments well, and it was a nice program.
This evening Hunter had his birthday party. This year he chose to go to Jump Time, and he invited all his friends. There was a good turn out, and they all had so much fun! They all kept having Cahl and I watch them do their tricks, and take photos and videos of them. It was pretty cute. Then they all had pizza and cupcakes before heading home. It was a great party, and I'm glad they all had fun.

After we celebrated Hunter's birthday, we headed up to the mountains to get a Christmas tree. The boys were all excited to bring their pellet and BB guns, as well as Hunter's new rifle and some other pistols. They had fun hiking around until we found our tree, then doing some target shooting. On our way back, we stopped by the river and had some snacks while we walked around.
Today we celebrated Hunter's 8th birthday! He requested a birthday breakfast instead of dinner, so we did that and he opened his presents in the morning. He was super excited for everything he got: his new scout shirt, since he'll be starting scouts now, lots of cool toys, a day pack, and his very own 22 rifle!
