We decided to have a little sibling Christmas party with the Erickson Clan. We rode the train down to SLC my nephew Mason was so excited. Then we went to the gateway and had dinner. After dinner we went to temple square and looked at the lights and then headed back to Ty and Cap's house for some yummy dessert that she made and to exchange gifts. It was so much fun and hopefully we can make this a tradition. Seriously there is never a dull moment when you get us all together. When we were going to get on the train we all piled in the elevator and stood inside it for a good amount of time before we realized that no one pushed the button!

As Jason says "good thing you wore your train hat!"
This is one of my Favorite Traditions. every year we get together and play Christmas bingo for prizes there are a variety of prizes from funny shirts to money. I scored this year since I won black out! This year we made Gingerbread houses and it was a lot of fun. Each couple made one, well Austin and Clint had to do one together since they were dateless! My dad and uncle judged them and sadly Me and Jason took third. I love this time of year and spending time with family and friends.

We have moved in! We still have some little things to work on and I am still cleaning dust and feel like I will be everyday for the next Month, but we are finally starting to get settled and put everything away. Here are some after pictures, we still dont have any decorations hung up, mainly because I dont have much and cant wait to decorate (pictures are a little dark our camera is almost broken for good )
I came home to find our very small Christmas Tree (one that we bought while dating) set up and plugged in and under neath it was.....
This little Guy! Notice the bow.. That was Jason wrapping him!
We named him Ace and we love him... He on the other hand does not know what to think of us. He is really scared right now and I will call him to come to me and he will just run the other way and hide under something or in a corner. Its sad but once he gets use to us and our home I am sure Ace will love us! Oh and dont mind our dirty floor in the picture we are still in the process of getting settled and dust is everywhere from the re modeling.
Me and Ace
I have such a thoughtful Husband. We decided not to buy each other anything for Christmas this year since we just bought a house and re modeld it. He says this doesn't count because he sold one of his guns to buy me a puppy. I love him! Another thing most people know about me is that it is very hard to surprise me. I snoop and try and figure everything out. I seriously had NO idea I would be getting a puppy Jason Surprised me good!
I was so excited when I saw egg nog at the store last night. So I bought some and brought it home so excited to show Jason and to have some! Jason said eww sick.... WHAT? who doesnt like egg nog?! Growing up we always mixed it with Sprite and I love it! I guess that means more for me :)
