Christmas (Finally!!)

Our Christmas was fabulous - I love this holiday! We opted for a real tree again this year and found the most beautiful one. We had a great time decorating it together and it looked so pretty and peaceful, I never wanted it to come down.



















A few weeks before Christmas Brayden lost his first tooth. Boy did he think he was grown up! At his dentist appointment in November the dentist saw that it was a little loose and Brayden obsessed over it and wiggled it until he wiggled it out. He looked so cute with a little missing tooth.


















We had our family Christmas party on the 23rd (I had to work on Christmas Eve - boo!!) and it was so fun. There were even a few celebrities that made an appearance! Santa came with presents and all the kids were in awe! We even had our China and California cousins on Skype and Santa was able to send them a present using Christmas Magic - it was amazing! All the kids personally received their Christmas pajama's from Santa himself. Then, the Dancing Doll and the Dumb Baby made their appearances. Good times were had by all. Christmas morning was spent opening presents and visiting family.
A few days after Christmas Mark and the rest of the guys in the family went snowmobiling in Yellowstone for 3 days - BRRRRR!! The high during the day was 15-18 degrees. Surprisingly, no one froze. They had such a great time and look forward to doing more activities together.

How fun! How did I miss this post? Your family is so darn cute and I think Brayden looks so much like you and the Openshaw family...but maybe I'm biased?

Wow...Yellowstone! I haven't been back since we lived near there. Snowmobiling looks so fun.

Your boys are so cute! Ya we went to church the other week and I didnt see you. Whats up w that? haha jk. Why did you transfer to Desert? Im looking for a labor and delivery opening. I think it's about time I get into what I really want to be doing. :0)

Ya I've been looking for openings in labor and delivery away from Baywood. Are their openings in that unit that Rebecca started? My friend Julie Peay works their... she is awesome! I'm already getting anxiety about going back to work. I don't want to at all. Ugh!!!!!! And about church... you should see us in the very back during sacrament meeting, but that's probably it. We'll see how we're feeling. :0)

Ya no kidding huh? haha. Maybe we should exchange emails or something. So do you work days or nights over there? (I could only do nights, since I don't want to put our baby in day care of pass her off to family) That sounds so nice not to have the pt all night long. haha. Let me know if there are any openings, because I will seriously start thinking about it. Here is my addy.... bbroit@yahoo.com

Nope....I haven't heard anything yet. :0( I hope it's soon. I was thinking about calling her this week, but I don't want to bother her since she already knows I'm interested. Ugh... what to do, what to do.

It had been awhile since I checked your post ... Christmas sounds like it was so much fun! Thank you so much for hosting us and inviting our kids to have a slumber party at your place! It was their highlight of the entire trip!
