Packing peanuts

This is what happens when a two year old is left alone in a room with a box of packing peanuts.
Just a little sample of whats to come!
A little more

It looks like it has snowed in the living room, it was everywhere, and it stuck to everything. I tried to be mad but it was just to funny.

It's christmas !!!

We had a great Christmas this year. We woke up around 9:oo am we had spent the night at my mom's house and we needed to be at my dad's house at 10:30 for brunch so instead of rushing to open presents and rush to get ready to go we decided to wait to open presents. Ashton and Noah didn't know the difference and we didn't care if we waited. We did let Ashton open one present from Grandma and Grandpa.

We had a yummy brunch with Dad and Val then opened gifts and just got the hang out and visit for a while. Then it was back to mom's house for presents and dinner.

We decided to have dinner later around dinner time, so that gave us time to get dinner ready and to open presents. Ashton kind of had the idea about presents. He would open them, with a little help from mom, but he would not put down the cars that he had already opened it was cute. We didn't let Ashton open the boxes with all his toys so he just got to look at most of his gifts till we got home. He really didn't seem to mind he had some cars to play with and he was happy with that.

I wasn't going to get Noah anything he is only 5 weeks old, and won't know the difference. But at the last minute I found some cute clothes and bought for him, so that was his Christmas. He got to wear two of the outfits he got due to an explosion from his diaper.

We had a great Christmas with lots of awesome gifts, and lots of yummy food. We actually decided to stay christmas night also, it was snowing and I was not in the mood to pack the car in the dark and in the snow. It was fun we stayed up late and played games with my parents. The next morning my mom watched the boys so that Jason and I could get a little extra sleep which was awesome for this sleep deprived mom.

Christmas Eve

Every year for Christmas eve we get together at my mom's house for a celebration with all of Myron's family. We have dinner, exchange presents and just enjoy every one's company. We decided to stay at mom's house instead of driving back and forth, it takes forever to pack up all the gifts and everything, this will probably be the last year we do this.

This year instead of the traditional drawing names and buying for that person, we did a gift exchange. It was so much fun one person picked a gift then the next person could steal that gift or choose a different one, until everyone had a gift. It was way more fun than just opening a gift, we are definately going to do this again next year.

Then of course Santa brought PJ's for the family. I tried to get a pic with the whole family but every time Ashton saw a camera he freaked out and did not want his picture taken. So no family picture this year. This was the best that I could get with the boys in their matching jammies on christmas eve. Ashton was watching Wall-E with uncle Leland and couldn't be bothered with a picture.

Lights at Temple Square

Tonight we went and saw the lights at temple square. We parked at Jason's office and walked a block to the trax station and then rode to temple square. Ashton did really good just walking with Jason until the end and then he only wanted to be held. He refused to wear gloves so his poor hands were so cold and red when we were done. Noah was all bundled up in a snow suit and in the baby sling he was the only one who was nice and toasty warm. We ended a fun evening by watching Polar Express when we got home.

Ashton was watching the horse and carriages go by, he was really excited to see the horses.

Me and Noah, he really is under that blanketThe family shot, Ashton didn't want to have his picture taken tonight, Noah is under the blanket so you just have to imagine his cute face

Ashton got really excited to see the water and as if his hands weren't cold enough he decided to put his hands in the water

Merry Christmas to all

This year instead of having a traditional family photo I decided to just send out a birth announcement for Noah. I was going to send one anyways so this just saved me some postage. Besides I have made about 4 attempts to get a family pic taken and it hasn't been successful yet.

4 weeks

I can't believe that it has been a month since Noah was born. Its amazing how quickly one can adapt to new situations. I am typing this one handed with Noah in my lap and Ashton playing next to me, and I wouldn't trade this for anything.

Noah has finally got his days and nights straightened around, which is awesome for me so now I am kind of getting sleep at night now. I do have to say I would love to have a full nights sleep, but I am realistic enough to know that won't be happening anytime soon. Oh well its a good thing these kids are so cute it makes this all worth it.

Oh christmas Tree

Jason has wanted to get a charlie brown Christmas tree for the last couple of years now. I have never been a huge fan of them. I love the traditional Christmas tree, this year we decided to get a charlie brown tree. Now I realize that this isn't a true charlie brown tree but it is pretty close. We had to go and buy some new ornaments for the tree, when we tried putting ours on the tree they were so heavy that the branches were really weighed down. It was fun buying all new ornaments.

I love hanging these ornaments, I got them last year and they are still one of my favorite decorations.

First Smile

I realize that this isn't a real smile and only gas but still precious all the same.
