Holiday Favorites

Whew! We made it through another holiday season. It was a good one, and we were busy with family events and getting over colds, passing it on to my parents visiting from North Carolina. Sorry, Mom and Dad. The kids received way too many presents, but we were happy to see the older ones begin to understand the true meaning of Christmas by doing service for others.

I've posted some of my favorite pictures from Christmas and a few of my favorite quotes from my children.

Maija talking to Bekah in the car: I don't know how Jesus created so many people. I mean, there's like hundreds of galaxies out there.

Maija singing one of her made-up songs to herself: And his name was Jesus Christ. Cha cha cha!
(I don't think I've ever heard "cha, cha, cha" following the Savior's name before).

Bekah who would not go to bed and insisted on sleeping on our bedroom floor: Guys! I'm trying to go to sleep! Can you guys just go to bed!

Some important firsts:

  • Kiira sleeping through the night! Yahoo!
  • Forest saying his first prayer (with help)
  • Kiira starting to eat solids
  • Forest climbing out of his crib

And now the pictures:

Fun, I love the sayings. How is Kiira sleeping through the night? We still haven't figured that out yet. We are trying the cry it out approach and I can't sleep through Paris crying.

I LOVE that picture of Kiira that's so TOTALLY "Deer-in-the-headlights!"

And what a smile Forest has!

Mijah cracks me up! And, yeah, GO TO SLEEP, YOU GUYS!
