The kids have been watching Voltron (a cartoon from the 80's that Matt loved as a kid) alot lately. It has something for everyone robots, mice, a princess, and heroes. Gideon decided one day to make Voltron toys for everyone. We think that he did a pretty job with these.

Some of the names that we like are:
Which ones do you guys like? Any other suggestions?
A picture of Eden's wings that she insisted on having and the first thing that I could come up with to make her happy.
Eden holding the star.
Larke was supposed to be a shepherd too, but she really got distracted by the beautiful star.
The Capital Building all lit up.
One of the floats lit up. So beautiful.The girls so pleased with their light toys.The kids favorite float, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

Along with Eli, who pretty much was getting anyone she could.
Eden and Matt getting ready to make snowangels.
So one day while we were at my mom's house in Utah we got between 9 inches to a foot of snow and decided to build a snowman. It was perfect packing snow. We had to convince Eden that she wanted to come outside and then of course she was the one that lasted the longest in the snow. We had alot of fun until of course people through snowballs at me while I was taking pictures and I thought that the camera was ruined. It ended up being fine when it dried out a little, so alls well that ends well. We had alot of fun.
Sharon and Mark and Elisa just moved to North Carolina shorly after Christmas. I'm so sad that they won't be in Utah anymore when we come to visit. We love them so much.
Other fun gifts that I got for Christmas are a rolling case for my cricut and other various scrapbooking material from my mother in law; Early Edition season 1, a cook book, cherry sours(my favorite candy), and a drawing book from my husband; and a wheat grinder and Standing Tall CDs and books from my mom(I grew up on these stories and songs and I can't wait for my children to love them too). All in all I feel very spoiled and I'd like to thank everyone for everything.
