Bailey actually wrote Santa this letter 2 years ago and it was on the the big guy's desk!
Last year we were new to Hyrum's company (Compass) and we went to his work Christmas party 2 weeks after he started. It was at a tiny little resturant and soooo BORING! So you can imagine my excitement when we got the invitation in September that his party this year would be at the Smith Tower downtown in the ever famous Chinese Room.
We had a blast! We ate, we danced, we socialized and walked around the top of the tower for a panoramic view of Seattle at night. So fun!
I'd love to show pictures but unfortunately we forgot our camera! So I'm posting a picture of the Smith Tower in daylight. We also walked out of the house without taking pictures of us all dressed up. Oh well - next year....

Bailey had fun and scored a lot. He also got to be goal-keeper this year in a few different games. He is so natural at sports and so team-oriented!
We kept asking Gabriella if she wanted to play soccer and she kept responding "I want to dance and do cheer." Hyrum really wanted her to try soccer this year so we told her she could do dance, cheer and soccer (I know, I know, we were insane with the schedule we kept this fall!). To cinch the deal we also had to buy her "pink" soccer shoes! She did awesome though even if she didn't score a goal this season - I know she's only going to get better!
