Tuesday, December 29, 2009 we come!

Another Christmas and New Year's has come and gone and I feel a little sad for it to be coming to an end. It has been a wonderful holiday. Jesse had a 2 week break from school and it was so nice to be able to spend lots of time as a family. We also had lots of family come up to visit this year. I do feel very blessed to have such wonderful family in my life. Looking forward to 2010 and having our little family grow in 8 weeks!
Kind of a picture overload, but some of my favs!

Well...I tried...

I figured it was probably time to do a post. Can`t really say I have a lot to write about these days. We have been staying home a lot with the snow and cold. I am being wimpy and trying to avoid getting sick! We did go to Santa yesterday. Cade was super excited to go see him until the time came to actually sit on his lap and then he decided he didn`t want to. I pretty much made him and the whole time he looked so horrified! He did tell Santa a few things that he was hoping for. Santa asked him to put out milk and cookies and carrots for the reindeer. It was cute how pumped he was to do that...especially to leave carrots. Jenna was scared and clung to Grandma. She sat beside Santa for the picture. There was no crying this I count the visit as a success!

I tried to take a few cute pictures of them before we went to Santa, but not so successful...maybe next year.
Cade choking Jenna to stay in place.
Jenna getting back at him!Totally posed...but I think he is very handsome!
We are totally looking forward to the holidays and excited to spend lots of time with family!
