Christmas-y Things

Things we did this December to get in the Christmas spirit:

*We decorated our new fake tree. (Of course, Asher un-decorated everything he could reach every time my back was turned.)
*We put a few strings of LED ice-cycle lights on the house.

*We partied with the Footes (complete with gingerbread decorating contest and nativity reenactment)
*We got pictures with Santa at the mall (thanks for the idea and the ride, Aim)

*We wrapped gifts (the night before Christmas... Asher's need to unwrap everything+ procrastination+ my desire for gifts to look super cute= no sleep for me on the 24th)
*We partied with the Stecks (and got the best gift ever during the white elephant gift exchange)

*We put out a super cute Christmas card (super cuteness thanks to Dan and lateness of card mailing thanks to me)
*We had family in town (and Mom and Dad are still here. Sad to see Tracy go today...)
*We partied with the S&R Hixons (yummy food and cute variety show)

*We saw the Mesa Temple lights twice!
*We caroled to our neighbors and some friends on Christmas Eve.

iPod Touch Give-away!

I'm not allowed to win this contest because I'm married to the guy that is in charge... but I think everyone else should enter. The prize is an iPod Touch for goodness sake. The fact that my husband is involved should tell you that it is totally legit and you have good chances of winning. So click the link and read all about it. It is easy, I promise!

Gwen's first time on stage was, of course, in my belly during Joseph a few months ago. Well, she sure is getting an early start to her acting career, because she is not yet a month old and has already played the demanding role of baby Jesus twice. She is really good. No crying. Very method.

In other news, I used the oven for all three meals today. That has got to be some kind of record for me.

Because I love her smile

...I thought I'd share.

By the bye, I forgot to post her full name! Silly me. It is Gwendolyn Monet Hixon

New Asher phrase: "Thanks, Honey!"
Glad to know Dan and I are obviously thanking each other for things around here.

For the record, things pop out of his mouth that I'm sure we've never said before as well. Like the other day he brought me a shirt from the laundry room and said "Here's your favorite shirt, Momma!" (I've worn that shirt twice in the last month. Not a favorite.)
