A Night In The Snow

It was already dark by the time Michael got home, but it didn't stop them from playing in the snow. Mikey lasted a couple minutes, but Michael was out there for MUCH longer. Here's the results.

Happy Holidays!

Risky Business

O Christmas Tree

A couple weeks after the fact....
Our stockings are hung

Mikey has a new pastime, staring at the carousel his great grandma gave him

Our first real tree...I love it!

Snow Day

Yes, here in the desert of California, we are getting snow. And quite a bit of it. Mikey isn't game to go running around in it like us adults are, but he's still fun to watch.

My Little Sugar Cookie

I went to my sister's house yesterday so the kids could decorate Christmas sugar cookies. We knew they wouldn't do too well, but we decided to give it a try anyway. Mikey started out pretty good and then the both of them just ate whatever they could get their hands on.
It's been so fun living so close to Andrea. Mikey and Lizzie love each other so much and they get so excited to see each other. We have some good times.

The finished product. Even with my help, they didn't turn out so well. At least they taste good!

Thanksgiving in Utah

These pictures are definitely not in order because I didn't want to take the time to move them around, so sorry if it's confusing. We had a great trip and it was so nice to spend time with family and see old friends. The trip went by way too fast!
My friend Lynsi came over with her two beautiful daughters, Tana and Lydia. It was so fun to have her over.

Mikey isn't cuddly so he didn't sit still for a lot of pictures, but Lizzie sat for a picture with my mom and so I wanted to put that on here because it was too cute.

Thanksgiving dinner....I of course ate way too much!

Mikey looked so cute in his coat and beanie when we could actually get hime to wear it. There are a lot of pictures of him to follow because I think he's cute.

Our neighbors kindly let him jump on their trampoline.

This is his blanket after the first cut. It's actually much smaller than that now. He had formed the habit of sucking on this blanket and it got really dirty and smelly. We are now almost all the way through the weaning process. He only gets it for naps and bedtime. If only he would stop sucking on the blanket we gave him when this one is gone...

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
