Emily's 1st Christmas

Christmas morning Sam helps Emily open all her loot!

Emily was extra good this year so Santa brought her a ball pool. Sure it may be as big as our family room but it was totally worth it!

At CBC the presents continue. Emily opens her present from Grandpa

Sam will make sure this snow suit sees the snow and Emily looks like she can't wait!

Emily enjoying some Christmas dinner

Sam's wildest dreams came true and it snowed Christmas day. So off sledding we went!

Christmas Eve

The kids are here! This year it was Chad & Kara and Rich & Jenn's year to have christmas in Utah. Christmas Eve morning we went to Magleby's Fresh for breakfast, french toast YUM!

That night we went up to CBC and sang carols with Jenn accompanying us beautifully on the piano. Then we lit the candles on the glockenspiel and Morlin read us the christmas story from Luke.

Can't Catch Me I'm the Ginger Bread Man!

Sam and I are working on starting new traditions for our family and we thought we'd try our hand at making a gingerbread house to kick of the Christmas festivities. Since we are rookies at this we thought we'd go with the kits. No one would know and it would look amazing surely!

Well... it err... umm... hmmm

Hirpy Bathday Becky

One year older and wiser too... or just one years old?!?! John and Karen hosted a lovely birthday bash for Becky and we all enjoyed some amazing food together. We love Becky so much. What a wonderful women.

And of course no birthday is complete with out an embarrasing photo shoot of baby's wearing reindeer antlers. How silly we were to think the ladies would sit through such humiliation. HOWEVER, come rain or shine you can ALWAYS rely on Steady Eddy to see you through. What an angel boy. He sat there for about 5 minutes and just smiled sporting some huge antlers. What a darling!

As things started winding down and clothes were coming off (who's? your probably wondering) Charlie and Emily thought they'd sneak off and redecorate the tree...

... Busted!!!

Miss Independent

Each meal time is a battle of wills between Emily and me. So sometimes for the sake of my sanity I give in and let her play with the container full of food...
