Fa La La La La!

I am so excited for Christmas and the New Year. To me Christmas isn't about getting presents anymore. I love to decorate and feel the warmth and love of the holiday's with my family. I love watching the boys get so happy over little fun things that we do. This year was our first year, having our own place to decorate. I decorated our tree, with a lot of help from some little hands. Beau's favorite thing to do is try and play baseball with the different balls on the tree. We ate cookies and listened to Christmas music and after we cleaned up our rather tremendous mess, we have been enjoying watching Christmas movies together. I just love this time of year. Here are pictures of my little helpers and the end results.

The pictures doesn't do my tree justice, I promise it looks a lot better in person. The colors are red and gold, and I decorated it with Santa's.


This year for Thanksgiving, Michael and I and the boys joined Tina's family and went to St. George for the weekend. The last time we spent Thanksgiving in Utah, was three years ago before Michael and I were even married. It was a great experience. Rhonda, had some great activities planned for us. We woke up Thanksgiving morning and it had still been raining. Needless to say that didn't stop the boys from playing a game of football. It was so cold, and we loved every minute of it. After we ate and watched some football games, we decorated gingerbread houses. Beau's ended up in the trash. He thought it was fun to decorate a piece, then eat and then throw it. The following morning, Tina and I were up very by 3:00 a.m. and headed out for an eager shopping trip. When we returned at noon, the boys all went on a four-wheeler ride and shot guns. After every one got back we went to Santa's Workshop. It was an incredible weekend. Beau and Gage enjoyed spending so much time with their grammy as Beau likes to call her. I am so thankful to have such a wonderful family. Here are a few pictures.

Beau decided to go outside all by himself. He just sat in this chair with a bottle for about 10 min.

The boys didn't watch any games, so Beau asked to watch Nemo on my computer.

Beau loves to watch movies on the computer rather than on the T.V.
Gage was so good. He barely cried on the drive up and back and only cried once while we were in Utah.

He's such a happy baby.
