Christmas 2010

Christmas was a three day event again this year. We have so much family that we have to celebrate with some of them early just so we can see them all! On the 23rd of December we celebrated at my Grandpa Kent's house. I got these kitties that I was super excited about!

On Christmas Eve we went to Grandma Kathy's house to celebrate. I got a dora the explorer book, a princess book set, a candyland game and some other fun stuff. As much as I loved all of these toys, my favorite entertainment of the night was this box that I played in with Mya & Avery...

We headed over to Grandma Carla's house later that night for more family fun & of course, more presents! I got a ladybug pillow pet that I really wanted. Then we went home, read a couple Christmas stories, and I went to bed so santa could come!

When I woke up on Christmas morning I was excited to see that Santa came to my house! The first thing I saw was my princess castle and right next to it was my shopping cart that I had asked Santa for. Of course my shopping cart immediately went into my princess castle, followed by every other present I opened after that.

We spent most of the day relaxing at home and went over to Grandma Mindi's for a little while to wish them a merry christmas. I got another pillow pet, this time a bumble bee which I loved, along with more stuffed kitties & puppies.

I finished off the day with a Christmas was the perfect end to a perfect day : )

I got to see Santa three times over the holidays! The first time I saw him was when we were shopping at Costco. I was so excited to see him but then when mom took me to talk to him I got scared and would barely even look at him. He told me to write him a letter, so when we got home mom helped me write a letter telling him what I wanted for Christmas. I told him I wanted a shopping cart, a dora doll, and a princess castle.

Then I went to see Santa with Krew & Kash at the mall. I cried and refused to go near him without mom holding me. No way was I going to sit on his lap! Later that day I told mom I wanted to see Santa again and that I would sit on his lap this time. Mom took me with a few of my (faux) aunties: Summer, Jamie (J5) & Lindsay (Boog). Once we got there I was too shy to sit on his lap so I made my mom & aunties sit with me.

Maybe next year I'll be brave enough to sit on his lap all by myself!

Playing catch up's been a busy few months! I'll start with Halloween. I was a "yadybug". I just loved wearing my costume and thought I looked so cute! I got to go trick or treating with my cousins Krew, Mya, & Avery. We only went to a few houses because it was rainy & cold! (Daddy has all those pics on his are some pics from carving pumpkins & Discovery Gateway)

Moving on to Thanksgiving. We had Thanksgiving lunch at my Grandpa Kent's house then went to Grandma Carla's house for dinner. As usual I had a great time being crazy with all of my cousins.

Christmas post to come...

Random Bits of Fall 2010

My mom & dad got engaged on September 13, 2010...finally : )

Mom & I spent a weekend up at Aunt Boog's cabin while Daddy was out of town. I had a blast running around outside.

Oktoberfest at Snowbird = always a good time!

Fun times with Mom, Dad & friends

Thanksgiving Point festivities

Last but not least, we go to Gardiner Village around Halloween every year. We went this year with Aunt Beth & Krew and my mom's friend Suzie with her cute little girl, Drae. We wore our adorable Norwegian sweaters my Auntie Tonje brought us from Norway!
