Christmas 2012

I couldn't have asked for a better Christmas. My entire family was here to celebrate with us. We opened presents, played games and ate... a lot! It meant the world to me that they were here since I couldn't leave town. The girls were on cloud 9 all day playing with family. It has truly been a great year and I cant wait to see what next year has in store for us. I hope everyone else had a great Christmas also.

TRAX and the lights

We decided to ride TRAX downtown to see the lights at Temple Square. We met all of my family there before they came to stay with us. The girls loved it. I think we will be making this a yearly tradition.

Andie's gymnastics performance Dec. 2012

Andie's gymnastics performance was amazing. I love watching her continue to grow and learn. She has really started to mature and part of it makes me sad but part of it makes me so proud.

These two have been waiting and waiting for a snow day. Finally their day has arrived and they couldn't be more excited. Man I just want to squish those faces.

Early Christmas with the Stevensons

The girls have loved having Grandma Dori and Papa Bob here to celebrate an early Christmas. I am kind of loving this whole month of Celebrating. I am starting to feel pretty uncomfortable but love having other things to keep my mind occupied. Andie asked for the gymnastics Dora doll and Elsie wanted another baby. Man, that girl loves babies and cant get enough. I am thinking its perfect since we will have one very soon. Then the girls got surprised with an ipad! Seriously what kids get an ipad for Christmas? Well like I said my kids are spoiled and are in heaven. I am actually really excited about it since it will give them something to do when the baby comes. We are putting lots of educational games on it and it is getting lots of use already. Thanks Grandma and Grandpa Stevenson for everything!

Christmas cookies with Gramma Dori

Since we cant leave town due to the baby coming soon Gramma Dori decided to come visit us. The girls are so spoiled and I love watching how excited they get when family comes to visit. Gramma Dori always does Christmas cookies with all the grandkids and since we arent going anywhere she decided to come to us this year. Its such a fun tradition.

Elsie Dance Recital 2012

Elsie had her Christmas Dance Recital and I loved watching her dance. She is such a funny girl and it shows on stage. She ate it up all that attention. Then afterwards we went to Chick-fil-a because it was her choice for dinner. When we got there we found Santa and the Cow. The girls loved it. It was the perfect ending to our night.

I love spending time with these three. Since I am due in the next month with this little guy we have been spending a lot of time at home. I am just taking every moment with them I can until this baby comes. Things are going really well though.

12 days of Christmas

My mom is seriously amazing and loves holidays even more than I do. She always made every holiday amazing and memorable for us. Now its all about the grandkids which I love. My mom does the 12 days of Christmas for the girls to get them excited. They love it when they get to open up a new present. I guess its good practice for when the big day comes. Today they opened up some Christmas aprons and were ready to make some treats. This time of year is definitely better with kids.

We took the girls to the Riverwoods to see Santa and the lights. They loved it. They have no problem telling Santa all the many things they want. Then after walking around for a while we ran into the Waffle Truck, it was amazing. It was such a nice night. I am loving this time of year more and more all the time.
