Happy Birthday Molly and Orrin

On Christmas night we celebrated Molly and Orrin's Birthday. Orrin was born on Christmas and Molly's Birthday is the day after. They were so excited that they got to open a couple more gifts. Orrin got some Toy Story toys and and outfit. Molly got a Weebles Tree House, an outfit and a talking purse. They were so excited about it. After gifts we put some candles into the pumpkin pie and sang to them. They didn't care that it wasn't real cake. They were just excited that they got to blow on something!

Christmas 2010

Christmas this year was spent at my parent's house. We had a great time. For some reason I don't have any pictures of Aaron or I - even though I know I took some. It's our camera! But, Good news - I got one for Christmas! I was so excited. Aaron got a GPS for the car. I took some video of the morning and I'll post them if I can figure it out. We had a great day filled with great people.

Lilly got a princess castle, a pillow pet and a few other little things from Santa. She also got a bike from Aaron's parents and another princess castle from my parents. She loved everything that she got. Her reaction was priceless. In the bottom middle picture she is freaking out a little. I got this nice head scratcher/massager thing, she said it made her arm twitch.

Molly first saw Lilly's things and was super excited. We had to redirect her to her things and her reaction was even better. She loved the car. She got right into it first thing. We couldn't get her to come out of it. She wouldn't open any presents. She tried a few times, but if the gift wouldn't fit in the car with her, then she just threw it out. She figured she didn't need it if it wouldn't fit in the car. She rode in it all day! I would say that Santa hit the nail on the head with that one. She got really good at opening presents though and she thought it was great to clap her hands and yell with each gift that she opened.

My Mom got this pretty bowl that they picked up in Hawaii on their last trip.

J.R. doesn't look like he got anything, but he made out decent with a t.v.

My Dad got a Kindle - which I had to teach him how to use. I think he likes it now.

Amber made out with a blue ray player and Despicable Me with a blow up minon. She was loving life!

Gingerbread Houses

This year we decorated gingerbread house with our friends the Feils. We had a really good time. Aaron and I had a little trouble with our house though. We had originally bought one of those pre-built houses that all you have to do is decorate. Our friends were giving us a hard time about it. So for our house we went and got one of those kits were you put the whole thing together. Meanwhile, the Feils went and got a pre-built house! It was a disaster! It fell apart so bad. First the roof went, then the sides. We were trying everything to prop it up. By the end of the night we called it our trailer that got hit by a tornado. It all worked out. Aaron was a little annoyed by the whole things, but we made the best of it. The kids just decorated the pre-built houses and they had a great time. I think they ate more than they decorated, but sometimes that is the point with the little ones! Thanks for decorating with us Feil Family. It was a blast.

Decorating The Christmas Tree

It is so much fun to decorate the Christmas tree. Lilly is getting so big and she loves to help in any way that she can. Molly just stands there looking pretty, but Lilly gets into the heart of it. We found a really great Christmas tree this year after much debate. You see, our original plan was to go and get a Christmas tree while we were at my parents house for Thanksgiving. We made it to Boise without any issues, but while we were driving (just past the temple, I might add) we got into an accident. There was black ice everywhere, so many people stopped in the middle of the road and even more people sliding to avoid them. We didn't have a chance at avoiding the car in front of us. Luckily no one was hurt and the other car wasn't too badly damaged. We got our car into a body shop to be fixed and insurance set us up with an.... I don't even know what it was called, because I hated it so much! Anyway, needless to say we could no longer get a tree at my parents house.

So we found one here in town, and I loved it! It was so pretty once we got it all decorated.

She could hardly wait to get going!
