Santa Gift!!!

When we got home from California, our Santa Christmas was
waiting for us!(Thank you "Santa's Helpers") Even though it was
late when we finally got home, the kids were so excited to see
what Santa had left them!! Of course, I only video taped that
night, so these pics are taken the next day or so.......still just
as exciting!!

Regan just had to have a "purple princess bike"!

And Ryan had to have "a blue bike"!!

We are so blessed to have been able to have this great
Christmas with our kids. Wyatt got a few little toys.....just
not as exciting when they have no idea what is going on!

Gingerbread Houses! 2008

We made gingerbread houses with Aunt Leanne this year!
We didn't get to last year, so the kids were really excited
to get to do it again.

Ryan was so careful and patient with his. He even
figured out how to do the icicles by himself.

He really enjoyed making the gingerbread houses

......another view............................

..............another view.

Regan had to have everything in just the right spot!
There was no changing her mind on anything!!
Although she wasn't thrilled about having her
picture taken at this moment, she did really enjoy
making the gingerbread house.

It really did turn out pretty cute in the end.

.....another view.......

........and........another view.

6 Months Old!!!

Can't believe this little guy has been around
for six months!

More Adventures in good old California!

We went to the L.A. Zoo with my parents, my
younger sister, one of my older sisters and her family,
and one of my older brothers, his fiance and his son.

Ryan really loved all the animals, but was real
upset when we found the petting zoo to be closed :(

Regan loves Giraffes, so she was very exctied
to see them there!

Fun Times!!!

Christmas Eve in California!

Wyatt's first Christmas! My mom got him these
socks for Christmas...had to get a picture!

We read and acted out the Nativity. A long
running family tradition.

It was so great to be able to see all my siblings,
their spouses, and children! The cousins all had
so much fun seeing each other after so long.

Ryan was Joseph......and proud of it!

Regan was a shy angel.

Our little man is growing so fast!

Well, here he is! Our happy little man!

He is Quite the Character!

You know you always have to capture the
sleeping pictures.

Poor little guy, he's been battling Thrush for
forever. We just can't get it to go away for good!

One more of his blue mouth. :)
He's getting so big. I am so grateful for everyday
I have to spend with our beautiful children!!
We are so blessed!
