Just a Quickie...

A few updates over the past week.

We have switched out the doorknob on Jonas' door. There will be no more lock outs for this Mommy! Jonas even helped!

We let Jonas open one of his presents early so we wouldn't have to take it all the way to Vegas with us. He LOVES it! Thanks Grandma Reggie and Papa John!

Last but not least we are leaving this afternoon for Vegas. Again... It will be a blast I'm sure, but I'm a little torn to be leaving this... For weather that is not so Christmassy... Being with family will definitely make up for it.

Anyway due to a few planned trips in the next few weeks, I will be on a blog vacation, if I get the chance I'll probably check in now and then, but nothing too fancy until after the 23rd! (Of January!). Anyway we hope everyone has a wonderful holiday! We love you all and Merry Christmas!

P.S. Camille did some family pics of us last time we were in Vegas! She always does such a great job! Thanks again!

P.P.S. Santa, could you put some Smooth Dissolve Tums in my stocking this year? And maybe some Milk Chocolate Lindt Balls?

P.P.P.S. This clip has been making Jonas laugh all morning!

Better now than never... Right?

Christmas is upon us and I have so much to do. I have a stocking that needs to be finished... And 3 trips to get ready for, (all in a row mind you... Any tips on how to keep an almost 2 year old occupied on 5 plane rides?) and mail to send out. (Sorry everyone who we will be seeing, but your Christmas cards will be hand delivered due to lack of funds...) Seriously I think I'm officially starting to freak out. At least I can say my Christmas shopping is finished. Anyway, Matt has also been super busy catching up from our last trip, and getting things done before we take off again, so we haven't been seeing a whole lot of him :(. Anyway Yesterday was a pleasant surprise because he got to come home early and spend a good chunk of the day with us! We decided to have a bake-a-thon. We made Sugar Cookies, (which were long over due... Matt has been begging for them for ages) and we put together a gingerbread house. Nothing too special, just one of those box kits but it was still a lot of fun. We also picked up some things to make some treats for our friends that live nearby. Here are a few photos of the evening. Jonas only made it through half the festivities before he had to go to bed but I think it worked out for the best. (He didn't really get that the candy had to go on the house...) Oh by the way, I think I might sugar him up more often before bed... He slept till 8:30 this morning! Merry Christmas to me!

A few of the finished cookies. Matt just likes to frost them all white, he figures we're just going to eat them, but I wanted a few cute ones. This is about all I got, by the time Matt was finished with the others.
We let Jonas decorate a Gingerbread Man before he went to bed. He started to get the idea but still, he just wanted to eat it!
Showing Mom his finished masterpiece.

On days like this I really wish Matt could be home more, although then I wouldn't be able to check up on my blog friends as often. Maybe just having him home once in a while will be OK for now!

Oh please watch this.

Seriously for Men and Women alike. This is the best.

Back again for a few weeks...

Well, we are finally home from Las Vegas. I wish I could say I have a plethora of fun and exciting photos to show you, but I am embarrassed to admit that I did not really take any. How humiliating... Anyway the trip was awesome and we are so worn out that I can't believe we have to do it again in a few weeks. I guess that's the Holidays for you. For the most part it was fairly uneventful, mostly just hanging out and having fun with family and friends. We had a good time at Mount Charleston, we ate some good turkey and got some family pictures taken. Mitch had his farewell, and then we took him to Provo. It was a fun week and Jonas LOVES his Grandparents and especially his Auntie and Uncles. I don't think he even had a chance to be bored. I also got to catch up with an old friend before we left Provo to come home. It was definitely a blast. I really feel the need to do some major relaxing considering December and January are going to be crazy. (Can't Wait!) I will sign off for now. Sorry for the absent pictures. I will try and do better next time! Happy Holidays!
