What a surpise this year to wake up to a white Chrismas! This never happened in Texas. We got about 8 inches. It was a lot of fun but very cold.
We've found out that the naughty list was an excellent motivator to get Phoenix to behave. When he woke up on Christmas morning he still wasn't sure if he was on the naughty list or not. The first thing he said was, "Oh Santa did bring us presents!" Yes there was just a bit of doubt as to wether he was actually getting presents or not. But he did get presents and lots of them, as did Sequoia and Bridger. This year Phoenix got a bike, blocks, dart gun from Angie and Malachi, firetruck from Mamu and Paw-Paw, a lego helicopter from Kati, and an army helicopter from Uncle Josh. Sequoia got a farm, a dress from Uncle Josh, a cozy coupe from Mamu and Paw-Paw, a ball, pink boots from Angie and Malachi and a shopping cart from Kati. Bridger got a rattle, a piano from Kati, a dump truck, and a Bumbo seat from Mamu and Paw-Paw. And for the cherry on top they all got $50 gift cards from Grams.

This is what we woke up to on Christmas morning.

Here it is...our visit with Santa. Phoenix got really excited and told Santa that he wants a boat with a boy and a man, a two blade helicopter, and a new army man gun. Sequoia finally admitted to wanting a dolly after some help from Phoenix. Bridger just enjoyed the view. They had a really cool set-up inside the Outdoor World. We got the pic for free so I thought the establishment would like the plug.

We just spent a really fun weekend with Bella (my niece), Andrea (my sister), and Malachi(her husband). Phoenix really knew how to make Bella laugh. Bridger and Bella are only two months apart. Bella is 8 mos. and Bridger is 5 mos. And thank you to Andrea, you really saved my bacon helping with my primary class. We got to take pics with Santa at the enourmously huge Outdoor World. It has a three story waterfall inside, so yeah it's huge. My camera has become very cranky so I do apologize for the poor pic. quality. The thing randomly shuts off with no notice and it frequently won't even turn on. But enough with my camera gripes. We had a fun time with visitng family and really wished we lived closer.

My big bear (Bridger) just turned five months old on the 29th. He's a big strong boy and a sweetheart at the same time. I feel so blessed to have such a sweet little baby to add to our family. Oh and I had to add some pictures of Bridger in his halloween costume since I somehow forgot to post any pics. of him during halloween, but better late than never right?
