Bragging Rights

So, I love to play in Photoshop. I could (and have) spend hours messing around with it. My latest venture was to figure out how to make my own blog background. You are viewing my first one! I ended up tweaking the html as well so it suited me better. Yes, I used my minor for that one! My blog and vicariously you, have benefited from my schooling. :)

Nate's form of birth control . . .

Nate was being goofy when he shaved and left this sweet mustache on. I tried to get him to leave it because it was so hilarious, but we decided it had better go.

Best Buds

Gabe is Landon's best bud. When Landon talks about Gabe to others he is his friend first and his cousin second. It's awesome that they are so close.

Food and Fun

Sawyer has enjoyed eating solids immensely. He cries for more every time we finish. :) He also loves bath time, especially when it's with Landon and his toys, and also cries when we finish. :)

Holiday Happenings

Do you just love how I blog infrequently and then it's a million things at once? So here you go:
The Holidays
We enjoyed a thanksgiving feast with the Harris Family and took some sweet pictures for our Christmas card:

fa la la ha ha ha!

When we put up our tree I was afraid Sawyer was going to tear it apart, but his favorite thing to do was roll under it and play with the bottom branches, and the ribbon on the presents.

Our hometeacher volunteered us to take pictures at our ward party. Nate got the night off so he could take them, and did a good job. Here are the ones of our boys and a couple other sweet ones.

Christmas Eve found us at Grandma and Grandpa Harris's for dinner and a special visitor! Landon commented that he thought it was really Grandpa dressed up, but then when his turn came to sit on his lap, he was a little scared. It was pretty funny.

Christmas morning was pretty exciting. It was fun to see Landon just as excited about everyone else's presents as he was his own, and Sawyer of course loved playing with the boxes and wrapping paper more than the toys he got.
Sawyer, along with toys, got his first tooth for Christmas! The poor thing, he got a cold the week or so before Christmas and was teething (although I didn't realize it) at the same time, so he was pretty miserable. Then Landon, Nate and I got the same cold for Christmas. It was a pretty fun holiday despite being sick. We had Nate home to ourselves (mostly) for 5 days in a row, so we enjoyed some quality family time.
