Santa Claus

Santa Claus came to Story Time today at the library! Lindsey knew who Santa was when he walked through the door. We have been talking about him all week, but I still wasn't sure if she would sit on his lap for a picture. She was a little nervous, so I had to carry her up there. I think she really wanted to get one of those candy canes that she saw all the other kids eating. Ah, the power of bribery! When it was Lindsey's turn, she went right up to Santa and climbed up on his lap. She didn't even cry! I think she even had a little conversation with him, but I couldn't really hear because it was so loud. Megan even sat on Santa's lap, but she wasn't too happy about it. She only cried because I walked five feet away to take the picture. She has really become a mama's girl lately, otherwise she would have been fine! I think the pictures turned out pretty well!

Christmas Party

Last night was our ward Christmas party. I decided to get the girls all dressed up for it. I kept telling Lindsey that we were going to see Santa there. We had even practiced what she was going to say to him. She wanted candy, clothes, and presents! It turns out that Santa did not show up, but they did have a really nice Nativity play and singing by the Primary kids. I don't think that Lindsey even noticed that Santa wasn't there. She was too excited by the bag of candy that they gave her! So here are the pictures that I took before the party.

This is our beautiful Christmas tree that Jason picked up last year. It came with the lights already on it, and it was so easy to set up!


On Thursday, just before the girls' bedtime, I went into Lindsey's room and found this. Both girls were in Lindsey's closet and had pulled out almost every toy in there. Jason and I figured that they were up to something because it was just too quiet! It was so cute to see them playing together. I hope that they can grow up to be good friends.

This one is a bit dark, but Megan has a huge smile on her face.
They were really enjoying themselves!

Megan's new trick

Megan has learned a new trick. She can now pull herself up onto the furniture! It is so funny to watch her do her little army crawl over to the couch and then stand herself up. She really wants to be walking and I am sure that it won't be too much longer now. She is eight months old today, and she is not acting like the baby that she still should be! I can't believe how fast she is growing up!

This is the cute face that I get to see when she wakes up from her nap.
I just had to throw this one of Lindsey in!

Megan standing!

So proud of herself!

Standing up in the crib. Normally, she is really happy, but she just wanted OUT!

Anytime I pull the camera out, Lindsey is right there wanting her picture taken too.

Standing at the rocking chair.

Doing her army crawl.

Actually on all fours for once!

A great Thanksgiving!

We had a great Thanksgiving weekend with my parents in Cody. Jason spent most of the weekend rabbit hunting with his brother, Jeff, or my brother, Alex. He even bought a new gun. I must be the best wife EVER to let him buy a new gun especially for hunting rabbits! We took advantage of the free babysitting and went to the movies two nights in a row. But the best part of the weekend, in my opinion, had to be horseback riding on Saturday. It was a pretty nice day, so my dad saddled up a couple of horses and we took Lindsey for a ride down the road. She had a blast! She told me, "Mommy, don't get me off the horse!" She would wave to all the other horses that we saw, and she even knew the names of the horses that we were riding. Grandpa rode Chinook, and we rode "black Sioux" (at least that is what Lindsey called her!). After we took Lindsey back to the house, Dad and I had to hook up the horse trailer for a longer ride up Hart Mountain. It felt good for me to be on a horse again. I don't get to do that much lately, and it was really fun. So here are a few pictures from our ride. I have to rub a little salt in the wounds for Eric because he was at work and this is what he would have done to me!
