Christmas 2014

This year wasn't our year to get to have Lindy with us ON Christmas, but we were able to pick her up the day after. We had lots of fun times with just the two of us for Christmas Eve dinner and a movie. :)

Behold....the Ambrose Family Christmas 2014 (warning, this is a VERY picture heavy post. Just in case you were wondering...) :

It was a nice dinner for two this year with it being just Allan and I on Christmas Eve:

 We watched a classic:

And woke up to 4 inches of snow Christmas morning. It's pretty much the most snow we've received all winter long.

We played games with Allan's family on Christmas day:

And then had SECOND Christmas with Lindy on the 26th:

She was spoiled with so many fun things between Allan and I and her grandparents on both sides.

 At this time we thought Allan might be deployed to Africa, so we got Lindy an army bear (that she named Allan) to help with the seperation. He isn't being deployed now, but we still sent the Army bear with a birthday present up to her in Canada so she can always have it with her.

 Lindy gave Daddy a new board game that has a board that is 6ft long! :) It's a fun Disney Eye Spy kind of game. It's a lot of fun. :D

 One of Lindy's favorite past times is "fashion show" she loves to put on all of her dress ups and then have Daddy announce her and come out and show off. Of course Daddy has to do it too (and I don't have any pictures of Allan....but it was hilarious.)

Little miss poser....

Lindy went to the grocery store with Daddy dressed as Cinderella getting married...

Pictures from when we went to see the lights at Christmas Village downtown Ogden.

My favorite scene:

 Like father, like daughter.

I came back from working out one Friday morning and found my husband had taken over the ENTIRE bed!

New Year's Kisses!!

And that's a wrap of 2014! :) On to January.....

The first part of December 2014

Well, just like every other month in our lives, December was busy. We packed a lot of fun times into the month of December. This is going to be everything leading up to Christmas. :D

This was technically still November, but it feels like it belongs here. In Ogden they do a Christmas light parade the Saturday after Thanksgiving and light a really cute park full of little Christmas houses called the Christmas Village. It was a very fun night (and not too cold or snowing!)

We went to see the Hobbit the day it came out, because we're crazy like that...

 We went dancing down in Provo one night. We love dancing and had a blast.

 Allan was asked to be a wise man in our ward's nativity production

  The young men as sheep

The wise men

 The nativity
 All the cute primary kids in the nativity...

 Our cute baby Jesus. She was so cute and did so well!

 Neighbor treats! we did popcorn and Redbox movie codes for our friends. :)

BreeAnn and her family came up to visit when our cousin Chris was in town and we had so much fun playing games and eating good food.

I love decorating my house for Christmas, and this year was no exception:

Gas prices really started to fall in the month of December and it couldn't have made me happier! Saving money on gas is always a good thing.

We went up to temple square one night when it happened to be not so cold. Allan wore just short sleeves as we walked around....the crazy!

 Just a fun night out with my cute husband:

And that brings us right up to Christmas! Stay tuned for all of our Christmas adventures!!
