December with the Gonzales Family

This holiday season has been a busy one for our family this year. We had a new baby, Activities Committee obligations, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Madison's Baby Blessing, and spending time with our family and friends. Needless to say I got a little behind on the blog updates. I have added a bunch of post to catch everyone up on our family. Scroll down and see our wonderful pictures from this great holiday season! Enjoy! xoxo Lindz

Abby and Madison Pictures

My friend Danielle took my girls to the Provo Library and took some wonderful pictures of both of them! We lucked out and the Library had a cute tree and table set up to take some pictures by. They also had some wonderful wood work to work as a great backdrop for the pictures. Thanks Danielle for taking pictures for us! xoxo Lindz

Temple Square

We went to see the lights at Temple Square in Salt Lake the day after Christmas with some of my family. It was freezing cold but worth freezing to death!. I love the lights and the spirit that are there at Christmas time. It is one of my favorite things to do during the holiday season!

Madison's Baby Blessing

We blessed Madison Rose Gonzales on Saturday December 26,2009 at the home of Darren's parents. We had a great time with most of our friends and family presents to witness this wonderful experience. I am so grateful to heavenly father for this beautiful little girl that he has sent to our home!

Higham Family

Christmas Morning

Christmas morning with the Higham Family is always a fun and exciting experience! We always wake up at 7 am to open "SANTA" presents, eat breakfast, and then open "FAMILY" presents. It was so fun to have Christmas in this cute little house in Fountain Green. I finally got my Easy Bake Oven that I have been asking for since I was like 10 years old. I think Santa finally got the hint! Abby and Madison got the usual toys, clothes, and games. Darren got some clothes, ipod dock, and bluerays/dvds. I always love spending the holiday with my family even if we drive each other nuts!

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve was spent with the Higham family this year. My parents rented a cute little house in Fountain Green Utah to celebrate the holiday in Sanpete County. The Grandkids all opened new pjs from Grandma. We song Christmas songs, had a devotional, and put out cookies for Santa!

"Sleep Under the Tree"

We celebrated the Gonzales Family Annual "Sleep under the Tree" night on the 23rd of December this year. We woke up on the 24th and had Christmas Eve morning and opened presents. Abby and Madison got some cute clothes and fun new toys to play with!
