Christmas Day

We had a wonderful Christmas day. It started very early in the morning opening presents, then off to a great sacrament meeting. I made a new breakfast (overnight french toast), then spent the rest of the day lounging around watching church movies and playing with new presents.

Jaxon opening his stocking. We didn't really get him presents. I just bought him some teething toys that he needed and put them in his stockings.
You know Kyra, always excited to take a picture, especially at 6:00 in the morning!

For Christmas this year Makenna said she didn't really want anything. Then she said, "Well maybe BYU things." So Brett and I got her a lot of BYU things. She absolutely loved all of them.

Brett got me this nice canvas picture of the family.

I let the young women borrow my sewing maching for a project. When I got it back I was only able to use one stictch. I don't know what they did to it, but Brett made it better by buying me a new sewing machine. SO excited!

Kenna is wearing some jammies that I made her. I only did a couple homemade things this year and they all turned out great!

Christmas Eve

We had such a fun Christmas Eve with my family at Kim's house. We enjoyed delicious food and had a fun time exchanging gifts with each other. You could tell all the ladies in the family were inspired by pinterest this year because there were a lot of homemade gifts.

My aunt made us all these super cute aprons. Yes I know I look pregnant in this picture.

A Post About Jaxon

I can't even explain how much love I have for this little guy. I'm not going to lie, the first 3 1/2 months were really hard with him. But it has been amazing to watch him grow and learn. He is a little over 4 months now and growing into a completely adorable little boy. He is smiling and laughing a lot. Right now he loves trying to shove his whole fist into his mouth. He is just learning how to grab things and that had been really fun to watch. He is still not sleeping very good, but it has gotten better. We have gone from waking up every hour, to waking up every 2-3 hours! I just can't get enough of this little ball of cuteness!

They look so excited, huh!

Christmas Cuties

Kim came over yesterday so of course we dressed the boys in the same outfits and did a little photo shoot. Unfortunately, niether of us could get the babies to cooperate. But I still think it's pretty cute!

Also, Jaxon is finally doing a good job at tummy time and lifting his head pretty high. This is the first picture I have been able to take of him like this.

A Happy Thanksgiving

This year my family and Brett's parents came over to our house for Thanksgiving. We had a great time and enjoyed delicious food. It is absolutely one of my favorite things to be around my family. I love them so much and am so grateful for them in my life. I feel like I have so much to be grateful for. I will list just a couple: My health, my family, our jobs, our house, the gospel, Jesus Christ who atoned for my sins, the chance to stay home with my baby for a year, my wonderful husband, my friends, and the list can go on!

I love this picture of Jaxon
