Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Wilcock Family!!

We feel and know we have been so blessed each year as we reflect on all that has happened in our lives. We have been blessed with wonderful friends and family, a happy and eternal marriage, two adorable kids, a beautiful home, food on the table, and the gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ. This is such a wonderful time of year and I can't help but feel gratitude in my heart for these wonderful blessings. What more could we ask for? We love you all and hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
Our family picture with Santa. This was the cutest setup. A couple in our neighborhood decorates their garage like this and they dress up like Mr. & Mrs. Claus.

Emma and Elias with Santa Claus. Emma actually did really good because she knew she would get a candy cane. Elias wasn't too happy, as you can tell from his boo boo face.haha

Elias, Savannah, Emma, Aubrey & Malin outside playing while we put up our Christmas lights.
Jesse putting up the lights. (Notice the orange extension cord on the roof, well, it's still there all bundled up like that. We were too lazy to move it or hide it.)haha
Emma dressed as Elmo for Halloween, Elias was Spider-man but I don't have any pictures of him yet. Emma loved going around to all the cars at the trunk-or-treat in show low. She loves candy!!
Emma has a cousin on the Wilcock side!! Baby Brooklyn Cali Ellsworth is here!! She is soooo adorable and precious! These little ones bring so much joy and peace into the world. Congratulations, we love you!!
Emma and Malin all dressed up to go outside in our "freezing" 70 degree weather.haha
I'm ashamed to say I didn't take any pictures of our Thanksgiving but we did have a wonderful time with Jesse's family. They all came out to Maricopa and we had it at our home. Thanksgiving day we participated in a Turkey Trot and Turkey bowl, had our delicious feast, played volleyball, watched movies, and played soccer. Too much fun! Thanks everyone for making the drive out here. The following day we celebrated Mom and Dad Wilcock's Anniversary by going to the temple. It is always so wonderful to go with family. We then did a little Christmas shopping and headed home. The next morning at about 2:45, Malin called me and I went over to their home to stay with the kiddos so they could go to the hospital. Sarah gave birth to baby Ashlyn Lewis 7:56a.m.

Merry Christmas, Esther! I'm so happy I got to see you last night, even if it was for just a second and even if I was covered in flour and eggs. Anyhow... I love you and your family very very much. You are great!

Glad to hear you guys had such a great Christmas. I was Hoping to see everyone but I was really sick and in bed for three days. I finally came out of my room Christmas Eve..but was still not up to a whole lot. Thankfully I was feeling better on Christmas Day. Scott was a sweetheart and took time off from work to take care of me and the boys since I could not. Maybe next time your in town we will see you! Have a Happy New Year!

I know your family has so many talented people in it that are wonderful professional photographers. You are so cute, Esther.
