Hanna has officially learned how to open a Hershey’s kiss. And she’s pretty proud of herself too. .
Everyday after lunch we head to our Christmas calendar and see what we are doing that day.. inside are two kisses and a note of the day’s activity. Hanna knows this routine, and eagerly awaits for her sister to hand her a kiss of her own. (no this doesn’t mean she gets one every day, but every now and then I’ll give her a few bites..) ❤️🎄 .
I’m loving these Christmas traditions we’ve got going on, and I love seeing their eyes light up. .

When you’re a Phoenix dweller visiting the snow you’ll make a snow angel anywhere and everywhere! .
I seriously lost count of how many snow angels she made but it was at least 10!! ❤️❄️☃️
.
Do your kids love the snow!?

It’s her first Christmas and she is thoroughly enjoying taking the ornaments off the tree, shaking all the snow globes, and dancing to every Christmas song she hears. 🎄❤️
.
There is something special about the first Christmas, especially since she is a bit older and can see and touch it all. And I’m excited to keep sharing all these magical things with her. .
Do you have any fun first Christmas traditions you do with your kids?

What are your holiday go to meals?! My number one has become @redbaronpizza. It’s the easiest thing to make and tastes delicious! It’s also a major plus that my girls devour it and keep asking for more! .
Check out my stories to see where you can purchase yours!!

Have you finished your Christmas shopping!? I know I always have the hardest time shopping for Brand. He never “needs anything” and doesn’t give me ideas so I’m on my own. .
For the past few Christmas seasons I’ve gotten him a personalized tie from @21rhinos. They make the best gifts for dads of any sort -grandpas, great grandpas, step dads, you get what I’m saying 😆.
.
Anyways, if you’d like you can use my code DAWSON10 for 10% off your purchase until 12/15 -you’ve got 4 days!! .
Happy shopping and you’re welcome!!🎄❤️

So... I didn’t make her pose like this, she did it on her own!! 😍
.
This weekend she had her first ever performance. And at first I thought she’d be nervous because she is so shy, but I was wrong!! While we were back stage she kept telling me “I’m just so excited!!!” .
I can’t believe how big she is getting!! .
Have you kids ever done dance or had a performance!? How did they do!?

“Christmas is the spirit of giving without a thought of getting.” -Thomas S. Monson .
What have you done to spread His love this Christmas!? .
Hazel got a few things for her friends, and people she wanted to make smile. We’ll bake treats, send cards, and so much more. All in hopes to brighten someone’s day and show our girls how good it feels to serve just as Jesus did! ❤️🎄

Hazel was less than thrilled to sit on his lap... she knows a fake beard when she sees it, and Hanna just doesn’t like Santa at all!! 😆 🎅🏼
.
Have you taken your kids to see Santa!? This was at our church Christmas party and I seriously think it’s the best Santa picture ever!!

I love that I am able to share the joy and love of Christmas with my family and start new traditions of our own. This year I am especially excited to teach my girls the true meaning of Christmas and share with them ways we can live like Jesus.
.
I just did a blog post about the different ways (and ideas for you) that we have incorporated more of Jesus into our Christmas! .
Hope you enjoy it!!
.
Merry Christmas!

My original plans were to post a picture of my beautiful Christmas tree. The tree I’ve been waiting to put up since I last took it down. But my morning has been everything but Christmas-y.
.
Hanna was up all night -which probably added to my morning from Hades- so she’s been super fussy. And Hazel just couldn’t stop crying for anything. .
Needless to say I had to put myself in timeout this morning, I had to take a deep breath and remember that it was only for a moment. These rough patches are supposed to help us grow, right?? .
Anyway, whenever I have these moments I am reminded of this quote that I keep in the back of my brain. “Don't you quit. You keep walking. You keep trying. There is help and happiness ahead. Some blessings come soon, some come late, and some don’t come until heaven; but for those who embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ, they come. It will be all right in the end. Trust God and believe in good things to come.” Jeffrey R. Holland
.
I hope you all are having a Christmas-y Wednesday! .
