Christmas 2008

First of all I hope everyone had a great Christmas. This was our first Christmas in Oregon and it did not disappoint. We had tons of snow it almost felt like utah minus my family and friends. We were stuck at home for several days and were begining to get cabin fever so we ventured outside only to not be able to get back into our driveway...huge hill and bald tires. So we had to park at the bottom and hike home luckily it wasnt very far. We spent Christmas eve at some friends house having dinner and visiting and then home.

Mikaila was excited for Santa to come. We made cookies for him that morning so we left them out before she went to bed. The first thing she wanted to know in the morning was where are her cookies. I told her Santa ate them and she begun to fake cry...I explained he traded her the cookies for presents but still more fake crying. It wasnt until she opened her first present that she was alright with Santa eating her cookies.

Mikaila loves umbrellas so Nana got her, her very own and she loves it. Of course it had to be pink and Nana even put her name on it. She was very excited!

Since its New Years today I thought I should wish everyone a Happy New Year!
Here's to 2009!!

I'm glad you got snow, I couldn't imagine Christmas without it. I love Mikaila's umbrella and with her name on it how cute. Now she needs some cute rain boots to go play in puddles:)
