We went to the Entrada Christmas party and enjoyed a nice BBQ dinner. But the biggest surprise was that Zach had been honored as the Entrada Employee of the Year!

This year we have started a new tradition for the Kelly house. We were fortunate to be able to help children who may not have received a special gift under the tree. Our neighbors introduced us to a lady that has been doing a Santa program to children that deserve a Christmas day surprise. We shopped for a couple families, one had a 12 yr old girl that likes clothes and make up. So we found her a really cute hoodie with a fur lined hood, some earrings, lip-gloss, and a scarf for the cold season. Our other family was a couple of brothers 17 & 8. The 8 yr old really wanted a Nerf gun, so we were able to find him a fun gun and some extra ammo. We also purchased some text messaging toys from Discovery Kids that we picked up at Costco that he may enjoy. But what was really humbling was the 17 yr olds wish list was new socks:( So he will find plenty of new socks under the tree. Teenagers we not the easiest to buy for but we had a good time looking and asking other shoppers what they would like to have. After the wonderful shopping experience we came home and looked around with what we had that we might be able give and we had an old Xbox and some games sitting in the closet that may be the real surprise for the two brothers. We really had a wonderful experience and it really excited us into the Christmas Season.
Lochlan fell in love with the train set at Barnes & Noble so we knew exactly what he would love for Christmas. We let him open it early because we are NOT packing it up to SLC and the box was to big to let sit around. Needless to say he has been a happy conducter. (We love Costco) making our Christmas shopping easy.
