Here's to a great 2008 and an even better 2009!

Hailee in her Christmas outfit from G. & G. Albiston.

Kaleb's first Christmas!

What cuties!

My mover and groover!

The Christmas stockings... G. Johnston made these for everyone, it's tradition that everyone gets a homemade stocking from Grandma....David has had his since he was a pee wee! ;)

" Who's got me? Is that Santa over there? Where am I?" A usual look for Kaleb.

Aidan with Santa. He was pretty excited to see Santa walk into the gym!

Xander was so excited he was the first to jump onto Santa's lap.

We signed up to make mashed potato's for our branch Christmas party and the potato's were donated by a member and they were HUGE!! As big as Kaleb's head as you can see!

Had to throw in some bathtime pics! My little angel!

Xandee man! (he can't say his "r" sound so everything that has "r" in it sounds like "e" or "w")

My little helper. He does this everytime Kaleb gets a bath, he holds and I wash.

Little stud (mini David).

Here's just a quick update. We had Christmas at home and enjoyed it. The kids were happy to see all the gifts under the tree, especially the ones from santa. We got to spend some time with David's family for a few days and we also just celebrated our 6 year wedding anniversary, and what a wonderful 6 years it has been! I was spoiled on our anniversary. My husband surprised me with a Wii and Wii Fit. I was impressed that he was even able to find one let alone keep it a surprise from me. The kids are all healthy and happy and are enjoying the ample amount of snow we have, especially Aidan. They definately didn't get that from me...I don't enjoy the cold much. Aidan got a Leap frog game system and a Thomas game and has just figured out how to use it so now I hardly see him during the day. He's growing up way too fast. He also starts playschool on Jan. 6 and is pretty excited about it. Xander is quite the little artist and loves to draw perfect circles (which are also faces, trees and anything else really). Hailee is finally enjoying having GIRL toys in the house. She got a stroller from Aunty Dallas and loves to push it (along with her 4 dolls) all around the house. Kaleb is a rolling machine. I turn around and he is already done a full 180! I'm sure he'll be crawling in no time, especially since he is already pulling his knees up underneath himself. He also LOVES solid food, our best eater yet and that's saying a lot considering he has Miss Hailee to out do!
We have had a great year and a wonderful Christmas and hope that the New Year will bring us a lot more exciting and fun moments together as a family! Thanks to all of you that sent us Christmas wishes, we hope you all had a wonderful Christmas as well and an even better New Year.
