The Catch-up Post

Yes, we're alive. I can't believe it's been 2 months since my last blog post. Where did the time go? Here's what we've been up to...

Thanksgiving came & went. We had delicious turkey dinner with all the trimmings with my family. We had about 20 people (aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, etc.). I always wonder how there's ever any leftovers with appetites that never end! Truly a Thanksgiving miracle...

This Christmas we celebrated by buying our first Christmas tree. Loved it! Brian & I decorated with lots of lights & our first set of Disney ornaments. They're really fun. We will do a better job next year of taking more pictures. Picture this: snowflakes on the ceiling, stockings on our fireplace (Pluto was Lily's & Dillon got Buzz Lightyear), & presents under the tree.
We opted to stay at home & make gingerbread houses/sugar cookies. The gingerbread dough had a little trouble. It somehow became a brick! This is why we practice these things. We'll do better next year.

We got downtown to enjoy Temple Square and all the lights. The Wyatt's came with us & Sofia was bundled up tight. She looked so cute in her little snowsuit. Lily loved her &kissed her all over. (She's gonna be a good big sister to Dillon.)

Brian & I totally got skunked on fantasy football this year. How did that happen? We're the ones "in the know!" Next year, we'll totally take it (as long as I stop losing to Travis EVERY TIME!!!).

The new year came with celebrations at Cathy's house. We always have TONS of food & play games with the family. "Apples to Apples" is a winner with that crowd.

It was an awesome holiday with everyone. And it zoomed by without any time to focus on my growing belly. (Read on to the next post: all about baby Dillon!)
