Olivia's First Christmas

It was such a wonderful Christmas this year. I was so excited for Olivia to have her first Christmas! She was such a doll opening up presents, and she was so excited- mostly for the wrapping paper.

It really tired her out opening presents, but she was excited about everyone of them.

Olivia got quite a few gifts for her first Christmas. We had to get her some princess Barbie's plus a couple other barbies along with some books, a movie, stuffed animal, toy cell phone, some outfits with some flower clips, a new coat etc. Her Grandma and Grandpa Smith gave her a really adorable Piggy Bank along with some other stuff as well (diapers, etc). Her Grandma and Grandpa Porter gave her the funnest pig ball toy that vibrates and moves around when you push the snout and a fun cookie jar that you put shapes into, with some other stuff also ( formula, etc). Her aunts and uncles were so thoughtful to get her some fun toys and books as well. She loves books so much! Mike and me had a wonderful Christmas. It was really fun being at my parents house this year. We played games all day and I actually won most of them! We had a Yahtzee tournament and usually I'm not very good at Yahtzee but I came out being the champion. It was such a fun Christmas and Mike and me will always remember it.

Keeps Gettin' Bigger

Both of our families just keep growing and getting bigger. With Olivia coming, and then both of my sister's marriages its been wonderful adding onto the family. From left to right is Brady and Kasi(Hoggard), Stephanie and Jon(Hyde), me and Olivia and Mike(Smith), my mom and dad, Kevin, and then Melanie. I love that our family keeps growing. I'm so thankful for family. It's so wonderful to have lots of family especially around this time of the year.

Another Year Older...

Yesterday was my birthday. We started celebrating it the day before with Mike taking me out to my favorite restaurant, Carrabbas. MMMM. Mike got me a hot pink CHI flat iron- they are the best! It was so sweet of him! We went to my parents house last night and my family got me some way awesome gifts also! I have been wanting to go clothes shopping but lately I am just too into baby clothes that I haven't gotten me any. My family got me some awesome shirts from Hollister- I love that store! and the movie Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince- I have already watched it twice. I also got some chocolate- Ghiradelli to be exact, and a delicious chocolate birthday cake! It was a great birthday!

Christmas Family Picture

I can't believe Christmas is just around the corner and with so much going on this year I don't know if we will have time to send out any Christmas cards. So I decided to post our Family Christmas picture that we took. I guess we kind of have a blue theme going on this year.
