Our Holidays

Even though this is overdue, we had wonderful holidays! We spent Thanksgiving at my Aunt Margie's in Snowflake. We had some serious MarioKart tournaments... and some serious pies. I really think there was enough pie for everyone to have one and a half whole pies all to themselves.
This was our first attempt at a family picture. Mike and I didn't get the "nice dress" memo. Hence the jeans. We only got the "black and white" memo. haha
Our friends Jeremy and Cori had an ugly Christmas sweater party, so I made Mike wear this. Can't you tell how excited he was?
We spent the night of Dec 23rd at my parents, and these were the only pictures I got! (well my mom got.)

we then traveled to Tuba City Christmas Eve. We got spoiled at both houses for Christmas.

We went to Telluride, CO the day after Christmas again for the 3rd year, and it was beautiful! Although this time was a little different for me because I was pregnant and could not snowboard! Luckily I've got a sister-in-law who is also pregnant and we are both having girls! So instead, we spent the time crafting. :) We brought tons of stuff to do, but really only had time for this...

A rag quilt! It was a lot of work, but worth it! It was good to feel comfortable using a sewing machine and now I am excited to make some burp cloths :)
This was on the Chondola into Mountain Village at night. I had some fun with picnik editing some of these photos.

We did not have gloves for Tegan so he sported these ones. He didn't seem to mind. He LOVES being outside.

After Telluride our friends Ben, Gwendolyn and their son Henry met us in Tuba for New Years! We only got bath pictures. haha

I went and saw some of my former cheerleaders at their basketball game! They are in high school now and all doing great! They will be competing in February and I hope to go watch!

I was laughing SO hard at this. This is just a normal size mixing bowl, but lately Tegan likes to sit in everything. I had to run and grab my camera in time. hahah I don't know how or why he would want to fit in this...

Lately Tegan has been "talking" a little more. Today he pointed at a dog on a cereal box and said "da" then started barking too. He says, "hot", "dada", "ba" (ball), "mama" (only a couple times). He knows the sign for: more, eat, milk, airplane, please, thank you.
He got 3 of his 4 molars in in just a couple weeks! we are anxiously awaiting that last one to come in because lately he has been waking up once or twice a night, and it is rough. He sleeps from 8:45 to 8:45 usually and I love it. I don't know if I am ready for a newborn quite yet....
