This is Carter attempting to sing "Santa Claus is coming to Town" He gets a little distracted in the middle but with a little prodding makes it all the way through.
Merry Christmas!!!

The Grimshaw Christmas Party

It was the annual Grimshaw Christmas Party. We meet at Uncle Ron and Aunt Norma's house and had a lot of fun with the Grimshaw side of the family. We enjoyed pizza and the traditional dipped chocolate goodies. Santa showed up with a surprise for all the kids. We enjoyed getting together and having a fun time with our family. The Grimshaws have an awesome tradition of giving to a charity or doing a service project instead of giving gifts to each other. They are a wonderful family.

Carter got to see Santa three times in two days. Santa must be making sure that he is being good.

Light Parade

Nephi has a really cool light parade on the weekend after Thanksgiving the kids loved it. It was so much fun that we didn't really even notice the cold.

Carter all bundled up

Carter's cousins Gabby and Aiden came to enjoy the show.

Santa showed up on a fire engine to start the parade.

We had a great time and ended the fun with Hot Chocolate at our house.

Santa Claus is coming to town.

We have been preparing Carter for Santa this year. We talked about how he wants us to be good and if we are really good he might bring us a toy. I asked him what he wanted Santa to bring him and with out any hesitation he said "A backhoe" Christmas has been so much fun this year. Carter makes everything so much more fun. I am lucky to be a mom to such a funny little boy.

Carter has an Awesome Grandpa who helps Santa Claus come to town every year.

Great Great Grandma Nielson

Carter is so lucky to have a Great Great Grandma. She is a wonderful caring person she will be turning 98 this January. I have some really fun memories of Family Reunions where she was out on the wave runners well over 85. She loves her family very much and the Church is one of the most important things in her life. I hope to be like her if I make it to that age. She is still as sharp as ever. We love you Grandma Nielson.
