Christmas Pictures

Here is our Christmas card this year. Above is the front and below is the back...or visa versa.

It was super fun taking these pictures. We went to a local apple orchard, which was so beautiful and fun for the boys to run around at; though, Preston kept eating apples. In fact, every single picture that I took of him had him holding or eating an apple! I was able to capture each of the boys separately, as well as several group poses and other small groupings.

Look at those faces! Adorable!

Here are all the new pictures of the boys. They changed so much from last year. Growing into men and growing up too fast!

Will is 14 years old and in the 9th grade. He plays football, lacrosse,  and is an avid skier.  He has straight A's in school and recently made it into the musical at Evergreen Jr.

Jackson is 12 years old and recently received the priesthood. He is in the 7th grade and loves being at the Junior High. He loves to draw, read, write stories and he is the best babysitter! He is always so compassionate and caring to his brothers, especially with Preston.

Tyler is 10 years old and in the 5th grade at Rosecrest Elementary. He lead his team into the football championships, loves snowboarding, lacrosse and basketball. He is a natural at any and all sports. Tyler is also pulling straight A's and trying to compete with Will.

Gavin is almost 8 years old and in the 2nd grade. Gavin skis with Will every chance that they get. He also loves basketball. Gavin has many young girls that gush over him, because he is such a flirt! Gavin is still playing the violin and excelling at it! It's so cute to watch him play.

Brigham is almost 6 years old and is in Kindergarten, though he wishes he was in the 3rd grade. Brigham loves playing basketball and is the lead scorer for his team. Brigham started the cello earlier this year and has been doing great at it! He just attempted skiing, and is already ready for some bigger runs. 

Nathan is 4 years old and in preschool. Nathan loves to play with his brothers and he is always trying to imitate them. He has a great smile and a loving personality.  He is very creative and is always trying to make things with Legos or Play-doh.

Preston is 17 months old, though I wish he was still a newborn! He's starting to talk, play, and his personality is definitely shining through. He loves his brothers, well most of them! He is also still such a snuggle bug, which I absolutely love.
