Be prepared for a picture overload. I wanted to put a lot more, but decided not too. This last week, we were able to go to Arizona for Christmas. We haven't been home for the last 2 Christmas's so it was really fun to finally be able to make it home this year. My brother from Michigan also got to come home, which was really fun. The first Sunday we were there, he blessed his son Jet. Family on my Dad's side came down for it.  I hadn't a most of them in several years, so it was so nice to be able to reunite for the special occasion.
Santa made a visit to my moms house while we were down. All the girls dressed in there Christmas jammies! I love how Madi is laying here!

Madi and Santa didn't hit off too well at first...

 Here is some of the fam that came for the blessing, My Grandma Leavitt, Aunt Leann and cousin Megan
 Madi also got to have a B-day party thanks to Kelly for suggesting the good idea. I can't believe she is almost ONE!!
 We also went to ride the Polar Express!!! It was the cutest thing ever. You get on a train, they give you cookies and hot chocolate, they read the Polar express, you go to the North pole, see Santa, and then sing Christmas Carols all the way back. Madi loved it! This is what we got my parents and grandparents this year for their Christmas gift.
 All the girls ready to go on the train at the Hotel!

 Here is all the kids looking out the window at the North Pole
 Here is Madi poking cousin Jet on the train
 The whole fam!
 Then we had the Christmas Eve eve with Bryan's family where we had a  game of white elephant, great food, and Joker.
 Christmas eve we went and sang and passed out gifts at a homeless shelter, and then came back to my parents house to open presents, and watch Christmas Vacation. Madi got the hang of opening her presents. It was so cute!
We are so happy we were able to spend this special season with friends and family.

Here she is STANDING all by herself!
She is getting way to big WAY to fast. She melts my heart every day.

 Madi on a train ride at the mall. She waved to everyone she saw as we drove by.
 Hmmm I wonder what Santa will bring you this year Madi?
 Here is another standing one.

We had the wonderful opportunity to go home for Thanksgiving this year, and we had so much fun visiting with family, enjoying perfect weather, and eating amazing food.  
 Here is Madison, Ranie, and Tessa helping put candy stockings together for the homeless. Tessa was an all star helper, and Ranie helped babysit Madison. Madison loved the suckers and the nerds. It was so cute to see how much she loved the candy, and her cousins!
The whole White side of the family was in town, so family pictures were taken. Here are all the Grand Kids, and below is the immediate White family. They are a good looking little group!

 Guess which one is the in-law!
 Madi is so happy here!
 I love this one of Madi looking out the plane window, even though it is a bad picture.
Lastly, Madison has been taking a few steps, I need to get pictures of it, it is so cute. I can't believe she is old enough to be walking!!!
