Christmas in our new house!

26 December 2009

It was our first Christmas in our new house and it was fantastic! Jake was in charge of Christmas lunch and all I can say is YUM! It was super nice to have my mom living with us and join us as well. We all opened gifts and just enjoyed each others company and the spirit of Christmas. We really do have SO much to be grateful for this year, especially our faith and family.
I think Jake and Dash woke up at 6am ready to open gifts but I wouldn't get out of bed until 7:30.
These two are true bffs.
This is just ridiculous.
Dash's favorite gift, he's a natural.
All worn out and on his favorite sleeping spot - a big stuffed sheep from Grandpa Lewis.

A Slim Fast for Amy

14 December 2009

My good friend and former college roomie Amy came for a visit last week. The first thing Dash did when she got here was go to the cupboard and hand her a slim fast - haha. We didn't teach him that, he came up with that one on his own. Good thing she's the last person to need a diet!

Thanksgiving kisses

Dash met his Uncle Jared, his Uncle Joe, his Aunt Jen and his cousin Emory on his Daddy's side for the first time at Thanksgiving. He just fell in love with Emory - luckily we caught it on video : )

Halloween Wild Thing

26 October 2009

So, I attempted to sew something and I thought it would be easy but a Halloween costume is probably not the best time to learn how to use a pattern! It kind of took me forever but, with tons of encouragement from Jake, it turned out great - thanks to our handsome son : ) Our inspiration was the book Where the Wild Things Are. He wanted to carry his "I see a monster" book with him all night.



Just the cutest play date ever

Happy Birthday Dash!! Family party.

06 September 2009

On Dash's birthday we had a family party and then one with his little friends a week later. He was a little grumpy on the day of his birthday but once he saw his new tent and xylophone, he was all smiles.
