Christmas Morning, excited and waiting to open presents!

It's 8:30am here on Christmas morning. It's just Brooklynn and I awake right now and we're waiting for Dad to come out and open presents with us! We had a great Christmas Eve with lots of family. There were 45 people to share dinner with which was hosted by Jason's Aunt and Uncle. Brooklynn looked as cute as ever, and we're so greatful to have her in our family this year to share this wonderful season. I can't wait until she understands Santa!

I hope all of you enjoy family, and the celebrations of this season, and remember the true meaning, which is none other then the birth of our Savior and that he came into the world for the sake of us having eternal life. I'm so thankful for my family and the great joy and wonderful blessings they are to share this life with.

Hope you all enjoyed your day, Merry Christmas :)

Ward Christmas Party

I wonder how she will act towards Santa next year? I witnessed two extremes from other kiddies full of uncontainable joy and excitement, or tears and screaming.

As much as I enjoyed it, I am soo glad it's over! I am on the activities committee, and when it comes to Christmas and planning the party, stress is instantly on the rise. I didn't have to do as much work this year as last year because they cut me some slack having a baby and all, hee hee I love getting that type of sympathy. Babies can be the greatest excuses sometimes when you can't make it/ are too tired to go to a meeting or something- haha! Well I would always get minutes over the phone instead of actually having to drive to someones house. I was seriously never able to make them because they held them when I'd be feeding Brooklynn and putting her to bed while Jason was still at a YM's activity or something, so it wasn't really my fault either...
Funny, I was watching Dawson's Creek today (random I know) and Dawson's mother said you're trying to hard to make excuses for something when you end up using more than one excuse. Oh I do feel guilty, there the truth is out! But I put forth my best effort in fulfilling my task of putting together the program and I was very happy with how it turned out. All was well and our little family really enjoyed it. And any mother who has/ had a little baby girl will tell how fun it is to take them out in a cute fancy dress to show them off. I did exactly that.
