Christmas 2007

Davis caught red-handed tampering with the tree (yet again).

Davis' first sledding experience

Tatum, playing in the snow... our neighborhood brings it in every year for sledding.

Davis and Ryan enjoying the lights at the Mesa temple.

Davis has had some difficulties distinguishing between Santa and pirates... he likes to wear his Santa hat and eye patch and run around the house yelling "yo,ho, ho!"

Tatum showing off her Christmas dress... it was my first attempt at making her a dress... luckily, it doesn't take much to impress a 3 year-old.

The Nelson crew at the temple on Christmas Eve.

Davis, unwrapped his undies, happily yelled "Spiderman!" and then tried them on his head. (I don't see us potty training any time soon).
Tatum loved all of the beautiful ornaments and Christmas decorations.
Tatum, informing Santa of her Christmas list.

Looks like you guys had a great Christmas. Davis just cracks me up, I love hearing about the things that he does. Tatums dress is beautiful. Its amazing what a pretty dress does to a 3 year old. Jaimee loves to spin around to music and watch her dress flow. I think she will be doing that in primary. It was good to see all the Nelsons together. I haven't seen any of you for a long time. Hope you guys have a great New Year!

I've been waiting for your Christmas post. I love Tatum's dress. I've seen it in person and I love it, I'm still amazed that you made it. I'm so impressed!

That dress turned out awesome! Just so you have some prep time I think Licity would look really pretty in a dress just like it for her next birthday- that's not too much to ask is it?

Tatum dress looks so cute Melissa! I can't wait to have a little girl to make a dress for--guess I'd have to learn to sew too. Your family is adorable. Glad to hear you have a fun Christmas.
