All Things Christmas...

We have had so much fun this December...We have done sooo many Christmas things but thanks to my wonderful computer (which is finally fixed now) I haven't been able to post much! I don't want to overload this post with pics so I will just pick a few random fun ones and call it good!
We had a fabulous Christmas and were spoiled as usual...Cupcake had the time of her life of course which is fun because she can actually understand most of it this year! She was given way too much but that's what it's all about being spoiled by loved ones! We received so many goodies as well but the best gift of all was that we were able to announce to our Families that BABY #2 is due in August!!! We are so thrilled and are scared at the same time. It' s going to be such a change to have two kids but like I said we are so excited and can't wait for Cupcake to be a big sister and to actually be able to say we have KIDS! haha...we are getting old! We hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas and has a Great New Years Eve!!!

Thanksgiving Festivities...

We had as always a crazy Thanksgiving Weekend! We were able to see all sides of our families though, not without difficulty! We had a few mishaps along the way but we did and still managed to have fun and eat more food than humanly possible! We love Thanksgiving and we love our Family and are so Thankful for the time we got to spend with everyone!! (this post is a little late)

Our Fam in Sundance
I was in charge of table decor at my Mom's side's dinner and this is one of centerpieces I loved this job and hope that it is assigned to me every year! I made little place cards for everyone to write what they were thankful for in 2009 and I am going to make a book out of it and bring it next year and hopefully start a fun new tradition!Me and my Sis Malibu
