Wow, I'm a horrible blogger! We had a great Christmas! We did Christmas with my family first the Saturday before Christmas. It was so fun to spend time with everyone, and we had lots of good laughs. Then we went down to Vegas for the rest of everything. We had so much fun seeing everyone and celebrating. Also, it was close to 60 degrees there!! It was hard to leave the warm weather, but we came back on New Year's Eve. Everything was great!!! A huge thank you to everyone who helped make our Christmas season wonderful.

This post will mostly just be about pictures, as I have sooo many to choose from. Here we go...
To kick off the Christmas season, Eric and I got sooo lucky and got tickets from my friend Maria to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas performance! It was amazing. Plus, we had like 3rd row seats just to the right of the center section!!
I don't think she quite knew what to think of him...but she didn't cry. Maybe that will be next year!
E and I at my parents house for our Christmas party. Good times.
Taylor sure had fun ripping open her gifts!
She was so funny with this crown on. It was like she didn't even notice it was there. She didn't try to take it off or anything. Silly girl.
E and T playing a little peek-a-boo. Tay is at such a fun age!
T got this toy for Christmas from Eric's parents. She can't do it by herself yet, but I'm afraid that's not too far in the future!
Here is Taylor just splashing away in the water. It was a cold, snowy day (what day isn't, I swear!), and I was trying to think of something fun to do. At first she was really nervous, then she started going crazy!! By then end both of us needed to change our clothes. We sure had a lot of fun, though!
Here she is just chillin in her bath. She LOVES bathtime. Sometimes if she's really fussy I just stick her in the bath, and she's all good.
I am having soo much fun with Tay these days. She is a crawling machine. When I am walking around the house doing things, she tries to follow me everywhere. Except usually she just makes it to the kitchen, then has to turn back around to follow me again. It's soo cute. One day I was in the computer room and she didn't see where I went, she crawled into the laundry room looking for me, then into the bathroom, then finally found me. It was too cute! Also, she can pull herself up onto most things and stand up now! She is too cute!!I just love being a mom, and she is the best baby ever, except her crazy crying at naps and bedtime...but we're working on that:).

TAY IS SO NAUGHTY!!!!!!!! She'd better not stand up or I am going to bust those little knees out! I can't believe how big she is. Crazy!

Why does that picture of her standing make me bust up laughing!!! She is too tiny to do that! She knows she is big time when she stands up alone. I could see that little attitude at my house. ;)

You are such a nice mom to let her splash in the water. I am so lame. I will blame it on our wood floors in both houses (so what if we had tile in our kitchens).

K, I also thought E was kidding about your seats to the MoTab! FUN! And I thought we had great seats last year!

I freakin LOVE all of those pictures!! So freakin cute!! I love her!! :D And I'll have to see if I will be a cool enough mom to let my kids splash around like that!

And I like how I said that as if I was married or something....I don't know what I'm speaking.

What a cute fashionable girl! Just like her mama

-KJ said...

Yes, you will be cool enough. My brain capacity is just much smaller than both of yours, so I just couldn't think of the idea.

HOWEVER, I will put a dog food dispenser filled with Cheerios on the floor for my next child. That way they won't be eating all the yucky crap, and go straight for the clean stuff. You think I'm kidding.

I seriously think that's a great idea!! I may use that for Tay, if she ever gets teeth:). So smart.
