Stick a Fork in Me, I'm Done!

December 31st

After much thought and consideration Paul and I decided to skip Vegas this year and just stay local. We went up to Salt Lake for Eve, the city's New Year's party. We had a lot of fun. I am so glad I didn't welcome in 2010 in my PJ's!

I plan to scrap the year 2009 this year since I didn't keep up with that but then I am kissing this project goodbye. It was fun but I am relieved to be done. Have a wonderful 2010 everyone.

Dec. 30th

What the heck? There's a seagull in our neighborhood. That's a first!

I know this picture sucks but,

it is one of my favorite from the day. It was so cute watching them hold hands and skate together. It was Emma that offered to help Andrew. It warms my heart when they are nice to each other.

Time to catch up again!

December 14th. One good thing about getting a lot of snow is it clears the air and makes for beautiful sunsets.
Dec. 15th
Tonight we spent almost four hours driving from the pediatricians, to urgent care to the hospital and back to urgent care because Emma had fallen on the ice the morning before. After all of that her x-rays showed she was perfectly fine. She did not have a broken elbow.
Dec. 16th
Emma got to perform some of the ballroom dances that she has been learning at the her Christmas party. She did great. We had a lot of fun watching her strut her stuff.
Dec 17th

Paul took my car up to go skiing. I was promised a car wash in return. We love the rainbow soap!
Dec 18th

Tonight we had a family game night. Marius got most of the attention, even though he didn't want it. We love our fuzzy buddy.
Dec 19th

Paul took the kids to a BYU basketball game and I stayed home and wrapped presents. IT was lovely having several hours of silence. Marius decided to help me wrap presents. He's a goofball.
Dec 20th

This was the last Sunday before Christmas. We got dressed in our new, fancy, Christmas clothes and took our traditional family picture in front of the tree.
Dec 21st

The first day of winter! Can you find the "G"?
Dec 22nd

Today was the last day of the 2009 school year. This is what we gave the teachers this year. Who wouldn't like a Kneader's gift basket? (Hopefully not their teachers.)
Dec 23rd

This is a Radko ornament that I got at Bath and Body Works a long time ago. I think it was when I was working there. The kids love it. One thing I do like about Christmas is all the memories that go along with the ornaments and decorations. They all tell a story.
Dec 24th

The children were all nestled snug in their beds, however they were no where close to being asleep. Santa came and got everything done earlier this year but it doesn't mean we got any more sleep. We were all way too excited.
Dec 25th

Merry Christmas. I think the kids were pleased with what Santa had brought them. What do you think? ;)
Dec. 26th

Oh how I love after Christmas sales. I got all of this fabric at 50% off. It is enough for two complete quilts and it was under $100!!! I was so excited. It felt like Christmas, oh wait...
Dec 27th

I saw the cutest Disney Perler bead kits at Robert's this year. I love me some Little Mermaid so I got that set for Emma. She went right to work on Ariel. How awesome is this? I love it. If she doesn't share I might have to buy another set so she can make me my own Ariel.
Dec 28th

Today the tree came down and so did the rest of the Christmas stuff. I can only handle it for so long LOL! I wouldn't mind the keeping decorations like the nativities and the Santa pictures but the tree dwarfing my living room drives me insane. Our house looks very bare right now but it's okay. I did get my shelf set for winter. Doesn't it look icy? I'm so happy with how it turned out.

Sunday Dec 13th

"Wake up! I need attention and love. Seriously if you don't get up now I am going to jump on you and stab you with my claws." This is how Marius woke up Paul on Sunday morning. There's nothing like living with a cat.

Saturday Dec. 12

Today we ran all over creation Christmas shopping, eating out and watching a Christmas Carol in 3-D. This is the only picture that was taken all day long though. Sad isn't it?

Dec 11th

One thing I love about Christmas are the unexpected gifts and goodies and Paul brings home.
