On Christmas day, we went to Moab to spend the weekend with my family. We had a good time playing lots of games and eating a lot!
On Saturday, we went on the mountain and went tubing. It was really cold and lots of fun.


We spent Christmas in Mayfield with Shane's family this year. We had such a good time! Here is what happened in the nutshell.....
Christmas Eve:

Santa stopped by and gave us all pajama pants
The kids acted out the Christmas cute!
Christmas Morning:
Santa came, Kennedi comes out and yells "this is the best Christmas ever!"
SO FUN!!!!

Baby Pictures

I had my 8th ultrasound yesterday. It's always so fun to see our baby boy. This time, we could actually see him cute! We got some really cute pictures of him........
This one was my favorite. You can totally see his lips and nose, but his fist is right in front of his eye.
You can kind of see his profile in this one.

See all the fuzziness around his head??? She said it looks like he has a lot of hair. YAY!
At my last doctor's appointment, he told me that if I haven't had him by the 20th of Jan, then he would induce on that day. That is just so crazy, 1 month from today!! I'm so excited to meet this little guy.

Family Picture

When we were in Moab for Thanksgiving, we went out and had my parents snap a few pictures of us for our Christmas card. This is the only I liked out of all of them. Big, Fat, Pregnant, and Pictures just don't mix!!

Holiday Fun

This year we've had so much fun getting ready for Christmas. Kennedi is totally into she keeps me on the ball.

Last night we made this gingerbread house that she had been so excited for. Her favorite part of course was eating the candy. As soon as we were done, and took this picture, she started begging me to let her eat it.....ugh, oh well, it only took us 2 hours to decorate....go ahead and destroy it sweetheart :-)
This is what it looks like today :-(
This morning we woke up to a little bit of she wanted to go out and make a "Frosting the Snow Man", snow balls, and snow angels (this is the first time it has ever snowed at our house since she has been born, so she is loving it).
She hates her snow pants.....she thinks they are too fat.
I know...our snowman is kind of lame, but we had very little snow to work with, and I'm almost 8 months Pregnant.....kind of hard to bend over at this point.

Kennedi's Letter to Santa

Kennedi wanted to write a letter to Santa to tell him what she wants for Christmas. I thought she did such a cute job, she is starting to color so good! If you can't read it (some of it got cut off), she wants a Pink Nintendo DS & Pet Shop Game.

She is so excited for Christmas. We put up all of our decorations on Monday, and she loved helping me. She gets up every morning and plugs in all the lights around the house. She's also really excited to make Santa cookies for when he comes.

Playing in the Sticks

Last weekend, all my family went out by Dead Horse Point, and had lunch, rode 4-wheelers, and shot guns. It was cold, but we had a good time.
Kennedi loved being in charge of the skeet shooter
