Christmas Morning

When Nahlia woke up I don't think she realized it was Christmas morning. We asked her who comes to your house on Christmas Eve and she said the Grinch and that he takes all our stuff. We laughed and told her Santa came last night and she got all excited and ran to look out the front door to find him. Sadly she came back to our room to tell us he wasn't there. She completely missed all the presents under the tree. It took her a little while to notice them.

Her "big" present was this table and chair set. It didn't come with "girl" colors so "Santa" had to paint a pink and purple one. He did a great job. She had asked Santa to bring her Dino Dan for Christmas, a Canadian TV show that doesn't sell merchandise. So she got a dinosaur flashlight and a folder with dinosaur coloring pages and Dino Dan's picture on the front.

One of the outfits from her Princess dress up trunk.
Nathan had to work later that day (not the first time that's happened) so we just hung out and played with our new stuff.

Ward Christmas Party

Best Santa we've seen. Nahlia LOVE's Santa and still in March sings Santa Clause is Coming To Town and Elf is her favorite movie right now. When Santa came out he was going to walk right by Nahlia. She started running toward him to give him a hug but he kind of gave her the stiff arm and when right by. Nathan and I laughed so hard because we know how much she loves him. We have it on video but it wouldn't upload. She asked him for Dino Dan, if you don't know who he is he's on Nickelodeon, a little boy who sees dinosaurs. It's origonally from Canada and they don't make any Dino Dan toys. The primary was asked to sing and eventhough she's not in the primary and doesn't know the song she decided to join in anyways.

Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

I had Craig and Linzy take our family Christmas pic when they were here for Thanksgiving. So cute, haha. Honestly I almost retook it because I couldn't figure out if I looked orange or Nate just looked white. Craig convinced me it was Nate, haha. The day after we got back from Utah we got a Christmas tree. I was very excited. It was the first tree our Pacifica carried. I thought that was note worthy. Nate's so manly.And the decorating. Nathan decided the blue and silver ornament's where not Christmassy enough so I get to buy new ones next year.

It smelt soooooo gooood. That poor tree didn't last very long. The tree lot guys said to add some sugar to the water to help it last longer, well I must have add to much sugar because it only made it a week before it started to get dry and stiff. I turned a beautiful tree into a sad little Charlie Brown twig.
Merry Christmas

Thanksgiving 2010

We headed to Utah for Thanksgiving. Since I'm writing this long after I'll try to remember as much as possible. One thing that I remember before we left was I had had a dream that I was pregnant on Thanksgiving at Tayna's house. Well all weekend I wanted to go get a pregnancy test but Nathan didn't think I was so I didn't get one. Had I taken a test though we would have found out a lot earlier that I was pregnant!

We met up with Tanya and the boys for some bowling at Grandma's work. It was Nahlia's first time bowling. Nahlia beat Nathan!!Next was some sledding at Grandma's house. Another first for Nahlia. The hill behind their house looks much bigger when there is no snow on it. I was fine for a first quick sledding experience but next definitely bigger. She really really wanted to push daddy down the hill.Thanksgiving was at Tanya's house. It was really nice to have everyone together. It was her first time hosting in her new house.Fist time cooking a turkey. I know this isn't the best pic but out of about 20 it was.George was on Man Vs. Food a while ago and it re-runned so I got this pic of him with him. I thought it was cute. Nathan thought I was weird.We stopped by Dave's house just as the sun was going down. I love his backyard.Nathan got up to go shopping with me on Black Friday. Something I never thought would happen but it did. We went to Kohls and Target and Rue21 and Big5. I think that was it. This was during our pit stop at McDonald's. It was the nicest McD's that I had ever seen until just recently. There's one there in Vegas that I was like "What this is a McDonald's".Tanya gave Nahlia some Princes shoes that lit up and played music when you walked. Johnny and Dillon took turns dancing with her. They would dip and kiss her and it was the cutest. Nahlia has some awesome cousins.Making a gingerbread train. It was testing Tanya's patiance and I just laughed.Whenever I start taking pics the Boys always ham it up for me and then ask to see the pic. This is another series of pics.The finished train.Eating the train.Nahlia's first attempt at a sleep over. She lasted about 2 minutes and then came and slept with me. It was cute while it lasted. I don't know of many kids that attempt to play hide and go seek while in a car seat but ours does. I was the one that had to find her. I got old real quick but she thought it was pretty fun.We stopped by to see James, Erin, and Jadie on the way home. Jadie is so cute. Nahlia tries to play with baby toys still so whatever Jadie was doing she wanted to do.
