Sealing Day

On January 14th, Mina was sealed to our family for time and all eternity in the Washington D.C. temple. Such a wonderful day! She was so beautiful and it was great for our whole family to be in the temple. So here are a bunch of pictures!

Leo's first primary activity

In January, Leo moved up to Primary (church kids 3-11). Leo had his first primary activity last Saturday, "Get to know your teacher". 

I still can't believe he is in primary! He's growing up!

They made "CTR" (choose the right) headbands. Leo was pretty proud of his!

Christmas trees and Santa Claus

When we got back from Kansas, we had to go get our Christmas tree!




Every year our neighborhood has a Christmas tree lighting and Santa comes. There is face painting and cookies and a carriage ride. 



Leo told Santa he wanted 3 monster trucks....Mina couldn't get enough of his beard.


Leo is starting to catch on about what's going on and what Christmas is. It's fun to see how excited he gets and we're having fun doing all the festive things with him. We're also excited it's Mina's first Christmas!
