We got our family pictures done! Which everyone knows since they were sent out in Christmas cards and posted all over facebook ;)
My husband is so attractive.
They turned out cute. Especially when the boys were happy =)
Again, look at that husband of mine. Mmmm hmmm
Then a few weeks later, my family came to town and ALL of us had pictures done.
They are SO. CUTE.
While my family was in town in mid-December, we went to Temple Square to see the Christmas lights
We had a family gift exchange with homemade gifts. It was really fun (and hard!) to think of things to make. I had Mia's name and bejeweled her a chalkboard.
The kids had a BLAST playing at our house. I caught Joseph and Carter playing a duet on the piano =)
Other Christmas festivities: We did Sub for Santa at Vivint. Shopping for other people.. yes please!
And we love Mason's chubbiness
Carter had a little Christmas program at Preschool and it was so funny! Him and his bestie Capri were so silly, and kept putting their Santa hats over their face, and then Carter kept trying to eat the ball on the end. Their teacher was probably less than thrilled but we were entertained!
Vivint Christmas party.. Carter sitting on Santa's lap
Me and some of my besties took our kiddos to go see the reindeer at Thanksgiving Point. We kind of just look for any excuse to hang out =)
Why buy toys when these two can entertain themselves in a box?!
Mason is into everything these days and LOVES the dishwasher. He'll climb right inside it, and throw all the silverware onto the floor.
Lately he says uh-oh all the time (usually AS he throws his food onto the floor). and he says Mama, and has learned to clap. He's at such a fun age!
Me and Alicia took our kids one day to the dinosaur museum at Thanksgiving Point. This might have been Mason's first time in sand. He wouldn't stop eating it.
He's so sweet!
Christmas!! I love our tree. I love that it's wintry and fresh, and it makes me happy. Sad it's gone now =(
Blurry but one of my favorite pictures ever of these two!! Santa brought this car for Carter, and I know it's gonna be so fun especially once it warms up.
This cute baby... he kills me. He stands, assisted, and I'm sure will be walking any day.
They are the cutest.. and they love each other
More fun times in the car... in the basement. There's no seat belts, and Mason kinda goes flying haha
So this picture demands a story. Carter constantly mauls Mason. Like lays on Mason. All the time. And Mason gets so annoyed. Me and Aaron had to go to the jewelry store to get our watches sized, and Carter fell asleep on the way. Aaaaand we laid him on the ground of the jewelry store (we are awesome.. and you might notice Carter's awesome outfit that he picked out.. snow boots and shorts. Okay then).
So we set Mason down and he immediately takes advantage of the situation. He starts poking at Carter's face, and smiling, and then he lays on him, and Mason thought it was so funny. Karma, Carter... one day very soon Mason will be bigger. And you will be sorry ;)
We went to exchange gifts last week, and Mason was trying on hats. He's cute
When you're outnumbered 3 to 1, get used to silly things going on around the house. Like Aaron pitching a tent in our bedroom. Carter and Mason thought it was a blast. Thank you Ryan for the tent, they are obviously stoked to try that out ;)
Aaaaaaand that's a wrap!
