Oh Christmas tree

We are busily getting ready for Christmas. Jacob love the Christmas tree but luckily he hasn't pulled it over yet. We have had fun shopping. I have probably made over half of the presents this year so that has made it a little more fun too. I think that babies and children bring a certain type of magic to Christmas. Jacob love Christmas lights, Snow, Christmas music etc. We have an advent calender that I got from my mom, and we read a scripture and sing a Christmas hymn, and then put a little angel figurine in the advent box. We let Jacob pick out the angel every night, a couple of times he has picked the baby Jesus, but we are saving that one for Christmas Eve. I finally got all of my Christmas cards addressed and they should be in the mail tomorrow yeah! Jacob seems to be in awe of the white stuff that has been coming out of the sky for the last two days. I think he will like it more next year when he can play in it. We went to the temple Friday night and then we all walked around temple square. It was fun to go see the lights as a family. If I don't write again before Christmas we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

glad things and sad things

Well the sad things first. Today is Jimmy's birthday (Jimmy is my parents dog). He would have been 14 years old. But he died on Wednesday night. He became suddenly ill on Sunday and died on Wednesday. He will be greatly missed be all especially by our little Jacob who spent last weekend chasing him all over. Well besides that these last two week have been wonderful. It has been nice to see family. We went up to Brigham for Thanksgiving, we spent Thanksgiving day at my aunt and uncle's house in Smithfield. It was fun to see pictures of Cami's wedding dress which she picked out over the break. Yesterday my dad spent the day at our place while Ivan went to the Snow College national championship game at Rio Tinto stadium with most of my siblings and my mom. We didn't think it would be a great idea to have Jacob out in the cold for four hours : ). Well my dad helped out a lot by playing with Jacob while I put up Christmas decorations. If it wasn't for his help everything would probably still be in a box. Ivan is getting ready to finish this semester and start new classes in January. He is working on his pre recs at SLCC. He wants to do his RN through a program with IHC hospital. He is working really hard. I think anyone who works full time and goes to school receives a big pat on the back. Jacob can now stand up an walk along furniture and he's not even 10 months yet. He is a very happy baby (except when he is in his car seat: )) Well here are a few pictures that I hope you enjoy.
