Christmas Pajamas

Growing up we always got a pair of pajamas on Christmas Eve. Most of the time my mom made us matching ones and I've tried to carry on the tradition in our home. Knowing I was going to be having a baby shortly before Christmas, I began making our PJs in June, but ended up finishing them the day before (I had to finish Mia and Siena's). Ron really likes the idea of us having matching pajamas for Christmas, but I told him I didn't have time to make all of them this year, having just had a baby - which was true. Our Christmas pajamas were Ron's biggest Christmas present and he loved them and so did the kids, which is good because they were a lot of work!

Here we are letting our true excitement show.

Everyone loves daddy!!

One happy girl!

Sweet moments to share!

Little Miss Mia!

Siena was very excited about the oranges Santa left. While we weren't looking she gathered them all up and added them to her stash.

Ready to feast!

Chillin with mom!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

We had fun getting ready for Valentine's Day. Ron took the kids to give some neighbors heart attacks. They enjoyed the thrill of door bell ditching too.

We also enjoyed decorating cupcakes to give away and take to a Valentine's party.

Siena tasted a cupcake and thought the rest should be for her as well!

New State Champ

We went up and visited with Ron's family in Wyoming this weekend and had a lot of fun. On Friday and Saturday Ron's brother Cody participated in the state indoor track competition. His relay team placed 2nd in the 4x800m, which is awesome. Then we received news that he placed first in the 800meter race, running it in 2:01 seconds- setting a new state record for the indoor track in Wyoming (his personal best was 1:58 seconds which he ran two weeks ago in Idaho). He also was a part of another relay team that also took first place. Ron and our kids had fun making a sign for him and putting balloons up so people would know about Cody's great accomplishments.
