Live Nativity

About a week ago my mom found a live nativity in Eagle to go to. So we rounded up who we could and met down there. It was a very chilly night but it was all worth it.
Here is all of us who came. Grandma, Vaughn, Jackson, Heather, Brooklyn, Todd, me, Dad, Alan, Mom & Liz.

The first thing you do is go through these amazing houses to a part of the land they alloted for parking. Then they took us on a little hay ride to the beginning of the nativity tour. There were around four different stops. They had little kids or teenagers as the actors and you could tell that they were frozen and and didn't care anymore. It was funny.
They even had live animals that the kids could pet. I was one of those kids!
The last stop was visiting baby Jesus. It was a neat experience.
Todd loved to hold little Jackson. He looks very cute all bundled up. He reminded Todd of the kid on "The Christmas Story" who couldn't put his arms down because he had too many layers on.

Todd & I were getting warm by the fire at the end. We had a lot of fun at the Live Nativity. I had never been to one before and I certainly recommend it.

Our First Christmas Tree!

This is our 1st Christmas as a married couple! We had a lot of fun decorating the tree. It was pretty easy with a pre-lit tree. As you can see we need to get a jump on the rest of our Christmas shopping.

I feel like a little kid this year that can't wait for Christmas to come. It seems a lot more meaningful this year. It will be exciting to share our first Christmas together.

Gigi's 1st Birthday!

Dec. 5th was my niece Gigi's 1st birthday. Chad and Andee had us over to their house for the party. Todd was the lucky one holding Gigi as the cake came out.
As you can see Rocco just wants to get right in there by that cake.
Gigi couldn't figure out that the yummy part wasn't the plate, it was on top of the plate. She kept eating the plate anyways.
Rocco had to show her how it's done and stuck his finger right in there. He is such a cute kid. I'm glad that I have the privilege of seeing my nieces and nephews often.
