this is Halloween... err... Christmas Town

Our Christmas was wonderful, in a Nightmare-ish kind of way. 
Yes, Avery's obsession with the macabre has yet to end, and I for one am loving it. Who needs more adorable, bright-eyed little girls who love ponies and dollies and pink and flowers and sunshine?! Bo-ring
Santa, therefore, brought Av a Jack Skellington doll, and a few shrunken heads (that last part was a joke). 
No, this is not our front yard. 
Yes, we are the kind of parents who will slam on the brakes, flip a U, and hop out of our car to take pictures on someone else's front lawn to make our adorable little goth baby happy. 
Moving on. 
We spent Christmas at the cabin in Pine Valley, in the mountains just outside of St. George, and it was super wonderful. The kids all got along really well, there wasn't much snow (yay!) and I love spending time with my parents, siblings, children and hubs. The End. 
 ...okay, not quite the end. Here are some great photos from our great time. 
The boys in their matching Christmas PJs. Aren't they cute!? Oh, and yeah, my little brother, Spencer, likes to pretend he is the devil.  NBD
 Matching babies!!
 Santa brought Carter her very own baby doll! She loves being a mama, which naturally includes sharing binkies, giving kisses, and dropping baby whenever she is bored. Isn't she the sweetest!?
 Christmas Eve story time!
 Christmas morning makes grumpy babies. Oh, and Carter looks pretty sleepy, too. Oooh Burned!
 Sleepy Gi.
 Avery with her Jack Action Figure!
 For my brother-in-law, Josh, my mom bought Christmas Crackers. I rocked that paper crown with my sister sister.
 Josh and Carter twins.
 Uncle Spencey and Gi-guy.
 Candy and toys and not enough sleep. Isn't Christmas the best?
Avery's new ladybug backpack was a big hit, but as the day wore on, her smiles for the camera wore out. 
I know this is a month late, but I hope you all had a very merry Christmas!
