This & That

Here are a few things from December... We had fun decorating for Christmas on the day after Thanksgiving. It was pouring rain when we went to cut down the tree so that was interesting, but we do live in Oregon so rain is part of the deal.We got two trees for the house. We...or really mostly Don, endured the rain to cut down tree one. Tree two came from Home Depot this year. Brighton insisted on putting up most of the ornaments on. She did a great job decorating in her "ballerinatard." It's so fun having a four year old at Christmas time. Talk about Christmas spirit & enthusiasm!

We also blessed Jackson this month. It was a beautiful blessing and we had lots of family here to share Jack's special day. It was fun to have everyone here to dote on Jackson. My dad made best friends with Jack while he was here and we all decided that they are lookalikes. Jackson is the most pleasant, happy little guy and we feel so blessed to have him in our family.

We had a fun, mini Christmas with my parents. Brighton was thrilled with her new ballerina doll & cowgirl outfit. I was thrilled with my new yellow heels. They are to die for and even if I can't quite get into my jeans yet, at least my feet are back to normal. In case you didn't get to see them, I had ginormous Shrek feet & cankles during my pregnancy. So, so pretty.

Bri & Jack also got to see Santa at the ward Christmas party. Check out the Santa suit! I was dying over how cute he looked...Jackson, not Santa.
