Christmas 2009

It's about time I started posting again, and what a better time to post than Christmastime!

The boys loved decorating the Christmas tree. It was so funny to see only the bottom half decorated, because that was all they could reach. Aaron took preference to some of the branches which became heavily laden with the ornaments he crowded on there.

Gingerbread house decorating has become a tasty tradition. Most of the candy ended up in their mouths instead of on the house.

Another tradition is opening up new jammies on Christmas Eve. They were a HUGE hit since they sponsored the boys favorite things: Lego Star Wars, and Buzz Lightyear. Aaron's nose looks a little funny in this picture because he smashed it earlier that day falling down some cement stairs head first. We were afraid he broke his nose, but it seems to be okay now.

Our live nativity. This is the third Christmas I have had a baby boy around, which makes the season feel special to me. It makes it really easy to imagine the baby Jesus, which leaves me wanting to snuggle my baby warm and tight.

Couldn't resist a blackmail picture. He's just so cute I couldn't help myself!

Honestly, though, it's been a rather blue Christmas. I miss my honey, and my heart ached for him knowing he was spending Christmas without his family. I love you, Paul! These blogs are for you too now! May they serve as a journal of your time away, and bring a smile to your face as you see your sweet children. You've got good genes, love! :-)

Are you close Becky? Ie Utah? Let me give you my digits (since a scary lady threatened me the last time I tried to call your old number) so we can get together! (801)718-9089! I don't mind driving, we could meet at Thanksgiving point or something. Plus our kids are the same ages so they would tire at the same rate! Hang in there!
