We had a yummy breakfast and then went to church with my parents. After church we headed up to Tanner's parents for our mini family party. It was a little different this year since we had done Mexico, but she still did the tradition of us all getting little Steinbach ornaments. They were all little Mexican guys or airplanes, which I think was so awesome - a perfect way to remember a perfect vacation. Harvey's face in both of these kills me. Just kicking back with the cousins like he's too cool for school. Haha. I thought I took more pictures here, but apparently not.
Right after that we headed over to Grandma Elaine's for the Burningham family Christmas party. I didn't take any pictures and haven't acquired the one fam picture they took. But it was fun. Great food. Good socializing and an always entertaining white elephant bingo. Harvey played really well with all the kids and did great for not napping that day. I guess I did take one picture...
|He's got the couch lounging down, that's for sure.|
I'm having a hard time (only a few weeks later) of remembering exactly what we did and when. I'm sure none of you are worried about those details, so I'll let it go and just say we had a great week.
Since Harvey, I'm sure, didn't get in enough golf whilst in Mexico, we found some mini-golf at Fat Cat's. We played the 9 holes 3 times and he wasn't a fan of being done.
|He thought this one was cool until he realized he didn't get his ball back.|
One thing that was a necessary evil that had to happen for me was Bruge's Waffles. We met Kathryn and Laura and Dallin at the Sugarhouse location one morning. Fills my heart and soul with sweet waffley joy.

We also spent a morning at the Discovery Gateway Children's Museum. That place has been around a while but I'd never been - guess that's not that shocking as I never had a kid when we were around it. Harvey loved it. There was TONS of awesome and fun things. He probably spent the most time in the grocery store and at the ball area. Julie and her girls met us there.
|Of course all the balls had to be blue.|
|I love this picture Tanner snapped.|
|Love my dad's face in this. Love the big kids playing too!|
|Hahahaha. That's all I can say. Love my mom.|
|Pretty sure T had equally as much fun.|
|This makes us laugh. Reminds me of that flu commercial...|
We did get some yummy food after and he had luckily relaxed by then. Nothing a few garbage truck videos on youtube can't fix.
Some post fun exhaustion...
By some miracle, he slept good, and woke up happy. And it was an absolute magical day. He was SO much more fun and entertaining than I was expecting. We woke up and Tanner walked him up to the Christmas tree to show him all the presents. No one was quite ready to attack the presents...except him. He wandered right over to the tree and just started tearing into a present. Luckily it was his, and my mom and dad and Kathryn joined soon after. We took LOTS of pictures. (Weird, I know).

|Still missing at least one...|
After Harvey loaded up on stuff, we watched my parents and Kathryn open their Christmas. Then they gave us some great things too.
|Harvey got a ball popping gun and shark car from Austin.|
|Tanner got a arc'teryx shirt from Shane|
|Poor lighting - got some sweet piano books from Laura|
|My cropping on my phone didn't cross over to the computer. Focus on the cute more central part ;)|
|Cool artsy photo by Tanner.|
|Tanner wouldn't cooperate and look at the camera- and again - no cropping saved when putting the pics on the computer.|
And picking the candy off of them after is probably the best part of gingerbread houses, right?
